Do you make crafts for Back-to-School?

Confession: we do’t do much in my house. We are lucky if we get all the supplies and have shoes that fit. Working from home, it’s easy to get side tracked and forget we still needed to pick up that pack of paper or buy someone a new coat (yeah, it’s happened… thank goodness they didn’t freeze!).

Fun Back-to-School Crafts

Whether you want to decorate school supplies or set up an entire homework desk, there are plenty of crafts you can create for back-to-school season. So to make things easy on everyone let’s break this down into ideas you can choose from. These are just jump start ideas to hopefully spark a little bit of back-to-school creativity for you.

If you are feel super crafty, go all out and have a blast!

Should we call you Martha? I agree, no. Grab your favorite tools and start creating, you know you want to and the excuse today is back-to-school happiness!

  • Make a personalized book bag
  • Make those cool paper book covers
  • Sew a handmade pencil case

You don’t feel like a craft super star but would love to look like one

You don’t have to sew like a rock star or paint like a pro to make your own crafty goodness. It’s not cheating to use pre-made products. Do what you can and love it the entire way.

Hardly craft ever, but you have 5 minutes to spare

You don’t need to be super crafty. Add your own personal touch. You can use a permanent marker or super sticky tape and add just a little customization to something you already have.

Take a look at all these fun back-to-school ideas!

What are you favorite fun back-to-school crafts? I’d love to hear all about them!
