Back to School Wreath

I wanted to decorate for "Back to School" but couldn't find any ready made decorations in the stores.  So I decided to make my own.

One of the decorations I made was a "Back to School" wreath.

First,  I used black ribbon and wound it around the twine wreath.  Then I added different size yo yo's in coordinating fabrics.  Added buttons and wooden school themed items, and some bows in the same black ribbon.

I also have made table runners and a flower arrangement.  Hopefully,  I will have time to post pictures of those projects as well.

Have a great day!
