GoodGrandma℠ had fun putting this Back to School wreath together. Thanks to Me and My Inklings for the cute ruler wreath IDEA. Laura Kelly has a fun blog; it’s worth checking it out! Here is how we put our wreath together.
First, gather all the needed materials. Paint the letters to spell “Back to School” and glue them to a ruler. Get lots of hot glue sticks ready and glue the rulers together. Once they are secure, attached the ribbon to the back of the wreath. I precut the ribbon into six-inch strips. Fold the ribbon in half and hot glue the other side of the ribbon, creating a loop. Then, turn to wreath over and attach the school supplies with hot glue. Don’t forget to add a ribbon to the top to hang the wreath.
