I have another Fall Burlap Wreath for you today. 
I sure hope you aren't tired of burlap yet. I still love it and I just think it is so PERFECT for fall.

This is a simple wreath and can be completely in a short amount of time.

DIY Apple Chalkboard Teacher Gift #CreativeBuzz

I'm sure many of your children have started school by now but Miss P officially starts Preschool Tuesday.
Ahhh! I can't believe it! I am super excited and nervous, for both of us, but I know she'll do fabulous.

I thought it would be fun to make her teacher something and wanted it to be a little something different.
This month's theme for #CreativeBuzz was apples so it helped give me a jumping off point.
This is what I came up with and I LOVE how it came out! 


She'll be able to use it to display her name outside her classroom, put reminders on it for parents, or however else she sees fit.

Here is how I created it so you can make one too!
