Back to School Decor Ideas

Do you decorate for back to school?  I normally do not, but this year I did!  This little old farmhouse table is in our entry way.  I love to decorate it for each season or holiday.  Obviously, back to school is not a season or a holiday, but it was fun to pull a few of my school related goodies into one spot for a little ode to school time!
It was fun just shopping my stash to see what I could come up with to bring this little vignette together!
I made these "teacher" cards as well as the book mark hanging on the chalkboard and you can find them in my Etsy shop HERE.
Since I was using a couple of my Rae Dunn pieces, I decided to write on the chalk board in my best Ray Dunn handwriting.  How'd I do?
The old window frame normally hangs above the table, so I like to decorate it too.
This is a wreath that I made lots of years ago and still use each Summer.  I thought it went with the scene so I added it.
I also added this little pencil banner that I made by using my Cricut machine and the Locker Talk cartridge.  I thought it was a cute touch!
The handmade cards or bookmark would be great for your child's teacher either at the beginning of school but most certainly at the end of school to say thank you for teaching your child for the year!
It was fun putting this little vignette together using all my old vintage goodies along with some of my new pieces too.  Those pencils there are actually from when I was a child in school.  My Mama found them and gave the to me a few years ago.  They have my name on them.

It doesn't have to be done all at once.  It is a slow process in the works! C-ya next time!

  1. Fun! Still have summer decor up but hopefully it will get cooler soon!

    1. Thank you! Yep, cooler weather is on its way and then out come the pumpkins!

  2. Very fun, DeeDee... Even when I had kids at home, I never decorated for back-to-school... maybe because I homeschooled and my house was covered in school items! LOL! This is adorable!
