Just because I don’t have to physically be at school this year doesn’t mean I can’t have aesthetic school supplies for the new term! For this week’s post, I wanted to share some of my favourite ways to get creative with back-to-school supplies!
Since I had more spare time this summer, I tried bullet journaling for the first time, and I loved the way it turned out! One of the hardest part was to find out how to start, but Pinterest is a great way to find inspiration if you’re stuck like me.
Bullet journals are great for back-to-school because they are super functional and look nice once its finished! Plus, I find that having a nice planner motivates me to continue using it 🙂
What’s great about embroidery is that I can embroider almost anything, and it immediately spices up my items! I personally didn’t use an embroidery hoop, but I would recommend using one if you want the final product to look more professional.
One of my favourite things to embroider are clothes, specifically old t-shirts or hoodies I have laying in my room. Other items that are great for embroidery are tote bags, jeans, and pencil cases. Overall, embroidery is a great way to personalize your items!
Easy sewing projects:
I’ve always loved sewing so I really wanted to look for some items that I could sew for back-to-school instead of purchasing things. Pencil cases are great because they are actually really easy to make and all you need is fabric and a zipper. I followed this tutorial for mine, and I love the way it turned out!
Scrunchies and headbands are also useful items to have for back-to-school. When I’m studying, I like to keep my hair out of my face so I decided to sew my own scrunchies and keep them on my desk so I can grab one whenever I’m studying.
With September approaching, I hope this gave you some inspiration on creating your own back-to-school items! Happy creating! 🙂
