Summer holidays are coming to an end and the start of a new school year is around the corner. If that makes you sad I’m here to turn that frown up side down, or, alternatively join in on the excitement a fresh new start might bring. As the tradition goes, this is the time of the year when you are allowed to go nuts over all the cool new stationery – something we enjoy all around the year!
I’ve gathered together 10 + 4 beautiful, inspiring and most importantly, fun DIYs for you to try out in the spirit of the new school year. Everything from making your own notebooks in 2 simple steps, to beautifying your work station and getting organized in a fun way.
In two simple steps, you can make your own notebooks – it doesn’t get any easier than this! You will need a sewing machine for this DIY, but not advanced skills as all you need to do is to sow in a straight line. And paper, you’ll need paper of course.
I love geometric shapes and forms, especially when it comes to interior design. These cute little Geo Globes are great for holding small things – jewelry, crayons, candy, you name it! And you can easily make any size you wish.
New school, new work station! Give your desk a little face lift by adding a cool, geometric inspired pinboard. You can keep all your notes and to-do lists in order while adding some inspiration to your working area.
To keep your spirits high on the eve of a new school year, I came up with a way to make the upcoming school days a little bit more fun and colorful. Wrap your school books with one of these geometric wrapping papers – free to download!
This is not just for the back-to-school crowd, but also for the grown ups. Dress you your basic clipboard with some paint and gold leaf and boom – you are the owner of the most stylish clipboard out there!
Organize your school or crafting supplies in a nice and stylish manner with this pegboard DIY that is not just clever but has a cool, minimal feel. It’s a bit more time consuming but will pay off by all the time you’ll save not looking for your lost scissors!
This is my go-to DIY when looking for a cool way to personalise stationery or create unique patterns for special occasion gift cards, name plates or decorations, or just wanting to have a blast while doing something with my hands.
Make your start of the new school year a little more stress free by getting organized. To help you do that, make yourself a few customised clothespins! You can paint them any color you want and label them with weekdays, months, subjects, after school activities…
