They go back in 2 1/2 weeks so I decided to put out a few Back To School items - you know, to get them all excited and ready to go back. Ha ha!
Here is my table that I always decorate for different seasons/holidays. I didn't do anything elaborate. Just kept it very simple.
A few faux apples, free subway art (already had the frame) and some crayons I borrowed from my kids.The books under the lamp are some of my Grandpa's old school books. It's so fun to look thru them and see his handwriting.
I also wanted a Back To School wreath for my front door. I rummaged around the house and found some supplies to work with.
Old wreath collecting dust in the basement - check!
Lots and lots of crayons - check!
Wood school house and bus (left over from a broken welcome sign) - check!
This is what I came up with:
I hot glued everything on, added some ribbon and called it a day! Plus, you know me, being all thrifty and everything - I spent $0.00 dollars! That's right. Nada, zilch, zero! I used stuff I already had around the house
So there you have it folks. Cheapo decor for Back To School. I know, I know. I'm so awesome . . . you wanna be
Here's a peek at what Handyman Hubby is working on for me.
I can't wait for it to be finished!
