Hi guys! We are full blown back into the swing of things homeschool style, and today we just wanted to show you all of the cool new DIY school supplies that we made! YouTube is just packed full of videos of ideas on how to DIY all kinds of school supplies so we have been completely distracted lately with all the fun things to make and do!
On top of all of that, the Little Miss received a new school desk this year and so she was so excited to be able to assemble it all by herself. We are looking forward to a way better year this year than we had last year, and we hope that things continue to look up.
So here we go! All of the DIY school supplies deliciousness that you can handle!
First up is pencil holders! There are so many different DIY’s you can make to hold everything from pencils and pens to markers and sharpies. We just chose a few that we really liked. We also created a few of our own original designs.
Next up is accessories! We already had a TON of pens, pencils, markers etc. but we wanted to make a few extras just for fun!
Washi tape pencils!
We have so much washi tape so it was nice to find a use for some of it. We glued pom poms with little bows and gems on top too. I don’t recommend wrapping your pencil in fuzzy string like the blue one in the photo above because then it really can’t be sharpened very well. I learned this after the fact. A pen would have been better to wrap in string. Oh well. Live and learn. LOL!
Here are some ribbon clips we made as well. These are great to use as bookmarks too.We think these pom pom clips are so cute. The Little Miss bought some other ones, but we thought that they were so adorable that we decided to make more. Little books!! These are my favourite clips by far. We made these with craft foam and just painted the faces on.
Tape dispenserWe made this cute tape dispenser from a watch gift box. We just added a small piece of straw inside and a piece from the sharp edge of an aluminum foil box. Then we just used scrapbook paper and washi tape to decorate. The straw that holds the tape inside is removable so we can change out the tape when it is empty. Perfect! 🙂
Notebooks and Notebook covers!
How cute is this little rainbow notebook! We cut the notebook down to size. Then we made the cover from cardboard and craft foam. We added bling to the front and some craft foam eyes and a face. I had a pretty boring and plain planning book so I had to jazz it up a bit.
Last is organizers! I needed a teacher station and the Little Miss needed some drawer dividers for her new desk.

Finally, here are some pics of our homeschool!
And that’s the tour! I hope you enjoyed making DIY school supplies with us and having a tour of our homeschool today!
Don’t forget about the dolls! They need to have some new school supplies too!
Also, check out our doll classroom. We will be creating a room box for this real soon. It’s already built. It just needs a coat of paint. 🙂
