It’s hard to believe the Summer is already coming to an end. Here at the homestead we have been doing all of the end of Summer things, putting up the garden veggies, shopping school supplies and planning for all of the back to school festivities. It got me to thinking about all of the cute and creative ways teachers can decorate their classrooms.That is where the idea of this simple back to school sign came to be. This little creation would make a cute piece for a bulletin board, a desk or somewhere in a classroom.
If you want to make this simple back to school sign for yourself, this is what you will need.
Supplies to make a Simple Back to School Sign
- Scrapbook Paper
- Hot Glue
- Wood Letter
- Small Glue Stick
- Paint (red, white, black)
Begin by cutting your cardboard to the side of your rulers and cover with a piece of notebook paper or scrapbook paper.
Frame out your cardboard with your rulers. I suggest grabbing some wooden ones that can be stained or painted.
Next add a little flair to your sign by painting a large wooden letter or even spell out a teachers initials with a few smaller ones. These came from the Woodpile at Hobby Lobby but similar ones can be found at Walmart and other craft stores as well.
Attach your letter to the sign with hot glue and embellish with your choice of ribbon! I had an old measuring tape on hand so it became part of my R+R Bow (Ribbon + Raffia).
ps…the + sign is made by cutting a small popsicle stick in smaller pieces, overlapping and painting.
