Is everyone ready to get back to school? I have always loved the beginning of school, it makes me happy. I love, love, love the first day of school, when you can see all the kids wearing their new backpacks waiting for the bus or getting dropped off. Too cute!
As I have mentioned before, I ALWAYS decorate my front door. I was getting ready to just put out some flowers in a cute little holder when I saw this cute back to school door decoration at The Diary of Daves Wife. I was inspired! ( I think I even used the same apple she did!) I love her super cute polka-dot blog! (You know how much I looooveeee polka-dots!!)
I grabbed my supplies, some of which I had and some of which I purchased at my most favorite store ever...Hobby Lobby! (At 40% off of course!)
I started by wrapping my polka-dotted ribbon around the wreath form.
Next I took my handy dandy chalkboard paint (I love this stuff!) and painted the small piece of wood to make my chalkboard. My plan was to border the chalkboard with pieces of ruler.
Once I got the rulers cut apart I changed my mind..mostly because cut up rulers just look...well silly!
Then I had the bright idea to make my chalkboard border out of popsicle sticks.
Ends up, I wasn't crazy about that either. In the end, I just decided no border.
I like the way it turned out!
My daughter will start her senior year this week. I am trying to figure out where the time has gone, and I'm trying not to cry. Seriously though, this is almost as emotional as the first day of kindergarten. Another milestone, for her and for me. I've begged her to let me drop her off on her last first day (tears again.) Can you imagine she said no? Haha! :)
Happy Back to School Time Friends! :)
