DIY SCHOOL SUPPLIES

I hope you enjoy this list of simple DIY school supplies that I have put together!

 

10 DIY school supplies - these are perfect back to school crafts, or for the middle of the year, for teens, tweens, or kids!

 

I have worked together with fellow blogger, Alyssa from Arts and Crackers, to put together a few DIY school supplies in honor of the new school year. I decided to gather them together in a convenient list for you to enjoy!

 

They’ll be using them all year – so why not DIY them? For the most part, these are simple upgrades of existing school supplies. A few (think: duct tape rulers) are made from scratch – mostly for fun.

 

You can do these once the school year has already started – it’s never too late to freshen things up!
