Skills Required: Beginner. All of these ideas are easy beginner to more advanced beginner, but some take longer than others. Just make sure you observe dry times and you’ll have great success with these projects.

Back to School crafts

I can’t believe it’s almost that time again. Summer just started, and now it’s almost over. What is going on around here? I don’t know how it is in your neck of the woods, but around here, school shopping gets pretty crazy.

I feel like I can’t go into the back-to-school supply section of a store without worrying about losing a leg. There are so many people!

In terms of strategy, I like to buy school supplies all at once. I figure one visit is enough, assuming I can remember and/or find everything. Then after I buy supplies, I add my own personal touches with Mod Podge (what else?).

To help you out, I put together a collection of over forty projects to get you inspired. Are you ready to personalize your back-to-school items and make some new things for your (or your child’s) study space?

Check out these tutorials below and let me know which are your favorite – and which ones you’ve tried – in the comments.
