By: Tina Shaffer

School’s back in session, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t still a little time for fun once all the homework’s done. Get yourself ready for class with a few school-savvy accessories and just plain cool projects!

Grow Your Own Crystals

The periodic table has nothing on this science project from A Beautiful Mess. Grow your own colored crystals and add some flare to your desk! What color do you think will look the coolest?

Apple Print Bag

Want to stand out from the crowd? Try your hand at decorating your bag with only fruit and paint with this project from Martha Stewart. What other options could you try besides apples?

Notebook Paper Shirt

No paper? No problem. Wear your homework instead! Check out this sweet notebook paper tee you can make yourself courtesy of Tutus & Tea Parties. Get creative and add your own handwriting. What would your shirt say?

Duct Tape Pencil Pouch

Can’t find your pencil when you need one? Love making stuff out of duct tape? Of course you do. Watch this tutorial from Sophie’s World and you’ll have your utensils wrangled in no time.

Paint Sample Calendar

As the school year is gearing up, it can get hard to keep track of DI team meetings along with all of your other activities. Stop by your local home improvement store to pick up supplies for a custom calendar from Chicisms you can reuse every month!
