Back to School "Bus Stop" Paper Napkin Wreath

Back to School Bus Stop Paper Napkin Wreath, get your little ones excited about that first bus ride of the year with their own wreath, for only $3.00 I'm sure you already have most of the things you need to bring happiness to your kids face!
Hola Amigos! Today I'm sharing with you one of my favorite projects because it's so easy and frugal to do, a paper napkin wreath! I have to confess that deep inside I've been avoiding everything school related since I'm about to loose my now companion and shadow for 5 years to Kindergarten! Yup, my little man is going to K this year...I know he has to...it's part of life...but do I want to let go...NO! He is ready but I'm not. But as a good parent I need to put my best face on, be cheery and encourage him to embark in this new adventure the best way possible!

We are bringing cheer to his room with this cute wreath. You pretty much know the basics by now since you have seen my Picnic Paper Napkin Wreath. It's basically the same for this one.
What I used: 1 grapevine wreath, 1 pack 20 paper napkins, a few embellishments from the Dollar Store, 1 piece of cardboard box ( I used the back of one of the embellishments pack) 1 STOP print out.

How  I did it: Take your napkin, open it up until you have a square and twist where the middle of the square is. now just stuff it in the grapevine wreath until is full to your liking, I used about 18 napkins but if you want a fuller look, by all means use more. Embellish your wreath anyway you want and enjoy your work!
This whole wreath cost me $3.00 I had the wreath already and only use mu $1 napkin bag, $1 toy bus and $1 pencil flags! Cool huh?
Back to School Bus Stop Paper Napkin Wreath, make your little one back to school season exciting with his/her own Bus Stop Wreath for only 3 dollars!

It was done quite fast too, about 30 minutes, I had to wait a little to the glue to dry on my cardboard for the stop sign.

This is my first project for the school season. I'm sure it won't be the last since my little boy is so excited. I just wish I was as excited as he is. Gotta be brave though, lol...still a couple of weeks for the Big Day and I'm holding on to every minute of summer I can!
Back to School Bus Stop Paper Napkin Wreath, make the first bus ride of your little one exciting with this super easy and frugal wreath, only 3 dollars and so colorful!

Thank You so much for your visit my friends. Hope you enjoy another one of my cheap but colorful crafts! I certainly have a happy camper on my end! Have a great day!

Besitos,
Lizy

  29. Whilst packing for our move I came across a full bin crammed with paper napkins. I had no idea what to do with them all! I am now inspired to empty that bin and make some CUTE wreaths (not as cute as yours though)! Thanks for sharing this at the party this week Lizbeth! I will be sharing this on my Facebook page this morning and have pinned it to the You're Gonna Love It Tuesday board on Pinterest :-)
