It’s that time of year again when the days are beginning to get a little shorter and the weather a little cooler. It can only mean one thing. It’s time for Back to School.
Back to School has a bit of a special meaning for me this year as it will be the first year one of my kids is going to regular school. That’s right, Little E is starting kindergarten. Where has the time gone?
This is a very emotional time for me as it means that my oldest is officially not a baby anymore. I want E’s teacher to know how much it means to me that she is taking good care of my son when I can’t, so I decided to make her a special Back to School gift. I wanted something that was meaningful but something that she could also use, so I decided to make a Back to School wreath for her classroom.
Making a Back to School Wreath
I decided to make one of the burlap bubble wreaths. For this project you will need:
- 12-inch wire wreath frame
- 18 yards of 4” wide burlap ribbon
- Blue, Red, and Yellow 1” wide ribbon
- Small chalkboard
- Hot Glue
- School supplies such as watercolor paint, crayons, and pencils
Start by turning the wire frame over so it is face down and tie a knot on the bottom rung of the frame. Turn the frame right side up, and you will want to start pulling loops of burlap through the rungs until you are at the top.
At the top twist the burlap to secure it and start again on the first rung beside it. You will want to keep doing this until the entire frame has been filled.
I then cut the strips of 1” wide ribbon into lengths about 4 inches long. Knot the ribbon randomly around the wreath, keeping the ribbons and colors evenly spaced.
After the wreath itself is complete, use the hot glue to attach the small chalk board as well as the watercolors. I then added the crayons and the pencils to the frame of the chalkboard.
Wet Ones® Hand Wipes For Back to School
Many classrooms ask for donations, especially at the beginning of the year. This is why, in addition to the wreath, I decided to donate some Wet Ones® Hand Wipes to my son’s classroom. I chose to Wet Ones® because as America’s #1 hand wipe*, not only do these wipes clean messy hands but they also kill 99.99% of germs — something important in a kindergarten classroom. Plus, it is a great 2-in-1 way to wipe out dirt and messes.
Wet Ones® are also hypoallergenic and clean better than hand sanitizers. It is available in both a canister as well as a travel pack. In fact, the canister is perfect for donating to a school classroom. You can find great savings on Wet Ones® with this Ibotta offer.
