We’ve been getting lots of emails requesting back to school DIYs! ‘Tis the season!! We’re busy cooking up some other fun stuff at the moment BUT I can’t leave you guys hanging! So we put together a couple quick-y DIY ideas and I’ve rounded up some throwback faves from the archives, too. Makes me want to head right back to the classroom, minus the whole test-taking and algebra thing. 😉
No. 1 DIY a Patterned Backpack!
Instead of a whole bunch of different patches, try buying several of one patch and making a patterned backpack! We used this plain canvas one (it has a USB port in it, and comes in a bunch of colors!) and our egg patches.
No. 2 Print Out Your Wall Calendar!
We may be rounding at the year but better late than never! Print and hang up our fun wall calendar over your desk! We’ve got alllll the important holidays covered, like Mean Girls Day and National Taco Day.
No. 3 Bring Some Fun To Laundry Day!
If you’re headed off to college, you’re gonna be needing a laundry basket and you might as well make it a funny one.
No. 4 Make an Initial Sweatshirt!
Get prepped for the first day of school with these DIY initial sweatshirts! We have a different printable design for every letter!!
No. 5 Add Some Flair to Your Chair!
Gather up all the patches you can’t fit on your jacket and add ’em to your desk chair! May I suggest an “I Brake for Cake” as the centerpiece??
No. 6 Makeover Your Notebooks!
Make sure you know which notebook is for which class! We’ve got SIX free printable notebook covers, find the ones above here and three more here!
No. 7 Break the Rules (JK!!!)
I’m not telling you to break your uniform dress code but like… would they notice if you turned your buttons into avocados!?
No. 8 Make a Set of Day of the Week Undies!
Who can remember what day of the week it is anyway? These will serve as the perfect reminder!
No. 9 Deck Out Your Locker!
Last year’s locker decor video was one of our most popular videos ever! It’s P-A-C-K-E-D with DIY ideas and tricks!
No. 10 Get Your Planner On, Girl!!
Convince yourself to keep using your planner long after the first day of school with a few stickers and planner faves. Here’s mine for this year: puffy shoe stickers, heart & star binder clips, day of the week pencils, pink letter stickers and glitter washi tape in every color. (p.s. Shoe clips for your sneaks!

If I was still in school, I’d be headed back next week! We always started a few days after Labor Day. When do (did?) you guys head back to school??
The patched chair is so cool, even for people not going to school anymore!

Me too, after Labor Day! I can’t believe how early kids are going back right now! It’s cruel and unusual!
There are some great guide here, thank you!
you should definitely do round ups of previous blog posts more often! ❤️ i know you’ve got tabs that categorize them already, but wow when you do ones like this or when i see the “similar blog posts” or etc. at the end of your posts, i’m amazed at how many suuuuper cute DIYs there are that i’d forgotten you did.

We set up together a couple fast y DIY thoughts and I’ve gathered together some return faves from the documents, as well. Influences me to need to head ideal back to the classroom, less the entire test-taking and variable based math thing.

I like your blog very interesting and meaningful.
The article is very detailed and useful to me! Thank you for sharing this article here!
Nice ideas. I really wanna make ‘Hack yeah, that is what i am talking about’ but i was coward back then. I know you get where i am going. Thanks for the post though.
Hi! it’s such a great article and my favourite part is “Deck Out Your Locker”. It always was the best time spending for me at school. and in general, I didn’t really study at school, I liked to do something with my hands. So while I was rummaging around with my dad in the garage, the https://pro-papers.com/buy-persuasive-essay helped me with my homework. This was the perfect period of my life. I could devote so much time to myself.

Your schoolchildren are undoubtedly the most stylish and creative. I enjoy these DIY things even at my age.
Class, really good ideas and plans. Interestingly, this allows you to have fun both during training and after. I often do my essays for a very long time and get tired. Of course, recently I got the opportunity through this website, here I read about the best essay writing service on Reddit and I have a little time to rest because I got help from them. Therefore, these ideas that you offer are perfect for having fun in your free time.
