Back to school shelf display

It's hard to believe that my kids will be returning to school next week. Just six more days until early mornings, packing lunches and homework! Although I am always sad to see the summer end it is nice to get back into a routine.
 
 
I have a small shelf in our entry hallway that I usually decorate to suit the seasons. I thought it would only be fitting to decorate a back to school display for the kiddos!
 
 

 
 
 
 
I got the idea for this notebook painted frame here. I painted my frame white and then used a red pen, blue pen, and a ruler to make the lines. I used some leftover cork to fill the frame and added a little school countdown.
 
 
 
I found the free Dr. Seuss printable here!
 
 
Now I'm off to clean up the paint mess my girls left me in the kitchen! Only six more days!
