in DIY, Not For Commercial Use on August 11, 2013

I know most of these back to school DIYs and printables  have been featured like crazy lately, but awesomely creative projects could never have too much exposure in my book!  Here are some of my favorite this year!

How stinking adorable is this ruler basket from Create Craft Love? Not only is it adorable, it’s also super functional and  could be use over and over again! A perfect gift or project for teachers and the kiddos!

Next, is the awesome free back to school printable collection I  had the privilege of collaborating  with the lovely Malia from Yesterday on Tuesday! It even comes with the sweetest Teacher Questionnaire .. If I was a teacher..this would definitely bring a simile to my face! :)

Talk about smiling.. I couldn’t  stop grinning ear to ear when I saw these back to school pencil treats from Live Laugh Rowe! She used Hershey kisses for the tips!! Ah! I can’t take the cuteness Miss Kelly!! Definitely on my to do list!


Props are still all the rage! These little guys are from Shaken Together Life and I totally dig them! I love anything you can reuse more than once! Just in case you want these but don’t feel like making them.. you could get them here! You’re Welcome :)


These color pencil holders from A pumpkin & a Princess AND Lemon Tree Dwelling are sooo simple to make and not to mention incredibly budget friendly! And a budget friendly craft is my kind of craft!

This pencil cork wreath  from Organize and Decorate Everything  is such back to school eye candy, I just had to include it in this round-up! Perfect for the home or the classroom and just screams, make me!


My little one is such the comedian in our family, so when I came across these lunch box jokes from Blooming Homestead, I know Miss Marie had my little Ariel in mind! What a wonderful idea and freebie!!!


Ohhhh how I wish I had some pretty Class Schedule Cards, when I was in school! Pretty stuff always makes the nerves go away.. Seriously, print these out now and also some extras for your kids to pass them out and even break the ice if they are the New Kid on the block! You can fin them over Pitter and Glink!

Check out this amazing DIY travel Map Chalkboard from The Crafted Sparrow and back to school homework station from Mom 4 Real! I can officially now blame my mom for  any bad grade I ever got.. I mean.. If she would have created an awesome map like that and put together such a wonderful work station for all my creative juices flow , my brain would have definitely absorbed more knowledge, am I right?


Happy Back to School Crafting!
