Growing up, one of my favorite things to do in August was go “Back to School” shopping. New clothes, new pens, new notebooks – everything was new and exciting. However, you don’t necessarily need to buy everything new when you can create your own DIY School Supplies!

Take some of last year’s leftover markers, pens, pencils, notebooks, etc., and personalize them for the new school year. Why not dress up an old binder with fabric or tape, or make your pencils look like one of a kind pieces so you’ll never have to worry about someone forgetting to return it. Why not get the creative juices flowing? Here are 10 DIY school supply ideas I found to get you started.
