It’s time to head back to school (or start school) and we’ve pulled together some fun DIY ideas that are great to make and can be put to good use.

Add a bit of pizzazz to the kids pencils with some different coloured glitter.  Just grab some Mod Podge and these pencils will be a shining standout in the classroom. For more detail on how to do it, head to Brunch at Saks


This nifty little idea is perfect for older kids to pack in the bags should they need to mop up any minor scrapes in the schoolyard.  It does require some sewing but I think you’ll agree it is worth the effort. Go to Positively Splendid for the step by step tutorial.


Here is a great way to reuse old milk containers for lunch and snack containers.  Just use a variety of milk bottles to make different shapes. You could add all sorts of decorations to finish them off including patterned contact or even chalk paint (to write your own messages).  What a thrifty idea back to school DIY from Creme de la Craft.
