Easy Star Ruler Wreath

Love this idea from @PagingSupermom. Super easy to whip together for #BackToSchool Decor

We are all sad that summer is over already. I have been trying to cheer things up with a bunch of fun back to school prep. We’ve decorated our mantle (using this and this), we have been clothes shopping, and of course stocking up on school supplies. I think I’ve mentioned before that buying school supplies is my favorite parts of back to school season. In fact, I have been known to buy a bucket-full of paper, pencils, crayons, rulers, glue and more and keep them in a cheerful bucket on my kitchen counter. I swear it cheers me up as much as a floral arrangement, but I know I’m kind of weird.

I love the project we created for this month’s issue of Raising Arizona Kids magazine. It is a super-easy ruler star, and it would look so fabulous on our mantle. I can’t find then one we made for this photoshoot so I’m off to the store today to buy more rulers so I can make one with the kiddos this afternoon — because you know I’m happy for any excuse to buy more school supplies!

Seriously isn’t that just the happiest, little rainbow craft ever? We created it for the March issue of Raising Arizona Kids magazine, and it is the perfect, simple rainbow kids craft for St. Patrick’s Day or really anytime you feel like doing something cheerful. Seems like it would also be a great rainbow science project for a weather unit.
