Well, I’m sure this comes with mixed emotions but school will be starting soon (in some areas it already has) but the truth is, it’s coming whether or not we want it to. When I was trying to figure out what to do for my blog post this week, I decided it would be fun to come up with a back-to-school-themed post. I wanted to make something that maybe not a lot of people have, something unique and cute. Hence my idea for a “Back to School” bunting printable was born. Thank goodness Marie came to visit this week because she helped me figure out exactly what I needed to do to make it look cute. Second opinions are always nice, right? Misty even offered her opinion after I told her what I was working on. Her response, “How dare you make something back to school related.” Haha! Yep, I’m pretty evil.

We had the bunting printed off at Staples on an 11×17 photo semi-gloss paper. It was only $8! We then ran over to Jo-Ann Fabric and bought a spool of red hemp cord. Once you have these babies printed off and you have the cord you want, it’s super easy to assemble. Within minutes you can spruce up your mantle, door or whatever your heart desires. You’ll love it!

A great thing about this printable is you don’t need to use all of the letters or school icons. You can change it up. For example, Marie took hers and used just the word “school” making it shorter. However, once she gets home, she said she’ll probably add the “back to” part to finish it off for her fireplace mantle.

Or you can change it up even more. I used my leftover bunting for my front door to add a little more back to school fun.

Fantastic, right?!

Now it’s your turn to making your own Back to School bunting. Hopefully it will ease the pain of the kids going back to school…just a little bit. 🙂
