Back to school time is here and that means time for a new wreath. Whether you are a teacher wanting to decorate your classroom or just want to celebrate your kids going back to school, this is the perfect wreath.

Did I mention the base wreath is called the No. 2 Pencil? Get it? Like the pencil! This wreath was meant to be! It’s also available with a matching tree and garland. How awesome is that?

Last year’s back to school wreath was pretty hard to beat. I still adore this wreath covered with magnetic letters, crayons, and vintage cat eye glasses. However, after a year of collecting paint tins, I think I may have topped my wreath.

Not just vintage paint tins (some still have their original price tags), I also added some paint dipped brushes and mini paint buckets for pops of color. I envisioned this wreath more art class than algebra.

The small buckets of paint and brushes originally adorned my Treetopia Basics Orange Tree which I decorated as a Art Studio Christmas Tree for DIY Network.

Good thing I’m a hoarder, and kept those brushes and paint tins because they look pretty adorable on this year’s Back to School Wreath.

I debated on giving it to my kid’s school art teacher, but it looks so awesome hanging above my desk, I’m not sure I can part with it. Have you ever decorated a back to school wreath? Tell me everything!
