It’s back to school season, and most teachers are heading back to the classroom this month. This classroom wreath is a cute way to welcome students back to school. I found a bag full of beautiful apples at Goodwill San Antonio, and I thought they would make a beautiful wreath. I used vinyl from StyleTechCraft to create the welcoming message inside the wreath.

Supplies Used to make a Classroom Wreath for Back to School: (affiliate links included)

  • Wire Wreath Form (16 inches)
  • Artificial apples
  • Various Ribbons
  • StyleTechCraft’s Glossy Vinyl in Yellow and Green
  • Cardboard
  • Hot Glue Gun

First I designed the text to go inside the wreath. You can add whatever text you like here. It would be cute to personalize it with the teacher’s name. Then I cut and weeded the green vinyl.

I used transfer tape from StyleTechCraft to transfer the text to a piece of yellow vinyl.

I then transferred the yellow vinyl to a piece of cardboard.

Cut a variety of ribbons to a length of 6-8 inches. Tie the ribbon pieces all around the wreath form.

I wrapped the center of the wreath form with green ribbon. The hot glue will not attach to the wire wreath form well, but it will glue onto the fabric ribbon.

Hot glue the apples to the wreath form. Start with the largest apples first. After that, fill in the open spaces with the medium and small sized apples.

When I was done I hot glued the vinyl covered cardboard to the back of the wreath. I clipped some small white flower bunches from an artificial flower stem and hot glued them between the apples. This colorful, cheerful wreath is now ready to hang on a classroom door to welcome kids back to school!

Trim the vellum around the vinyl to make the lampshade. Tape the edges of the vellum lampshade together using bits of the clear transfer tape. The transfer tape is so sheer you can’t even see it! Pop the groovy lampshades on the glasses and drop a battery operated tea light inside. When it's time to toast the new year guests can just remove the lampshades and lights.
