Since both of my girls are starting school tomorrow morning, I decided to celebrate the occasion by decorating our mantle…
I made a little chalkboard school countdown sign, complete with a tutorial that I’ll be sharing later in the week over at Simply Klassic Home, while Kristen is in Hawaii.
I covered some cardboard letters from Hobby Lobby with torn book pages, glitter, and a page from my oldest daughter’s handwriting book from kinder *sniffle*.
A glittered apple garland will transition well from school days into fall…
And I finally found a use for the big bag of crayon pieces… they make a perfect accessory for a back to school mantle!
It’s a sweet mantle… and a bittersweet reminder that tomorrow, my baby is starting big kid school:
She’s so excited about it that it makes it hard for me to feel sad that she’s growing up…
But I took the day off anyway, just in case I need time to recover.
Are your little ones ready for back to school??
