{DIY} Back to School Burlap Wreath

It's officially back to school for the kids of Charlotte and my littlest sister is teaching her very first class of third graders today in the elementary school that she was once a student in. This hardly seems possible! 

As a little "first day of school/good luck on your first day in the real world/hello you are a grown up/and responsible for shaping little minds" treat, my sister and I resurrected our favorite Burlap Ruffle Wreath and gave it a back to school makeover. I think this will look darling in her classroom! It would also be a happy little welcome on any front door! Just swap out the name on the chalkboard for your last name or "welcome". 

The base of the ruffle wreath remains the same, then we added some deco mesh and bright primary colored ribbon. Once the burlap was done, we wove in the red deco mesh. T-pins and floral picks work best for holding it in place. After the deco mesh, we went to town with the patterned ribbon. T-pins are perfect for securing the ribbon. We finished it off with a tiny chalkboard attached to a clothespin. We secured the clothespin to the wreath and added a tiny wooden apple!

All of our supplies were purchased at Michael's and Hobby Lobby.
