Back to School time is fast approaching (we already went back here in SW Florida on August 12th) and I have created this Back to School Pencil Banner so all of my crafty teacher friends can “WELCOME” their students back to class in style!

This Back to School Pencil Banner went together in just under an hour, so it is quick and easy to create in an evening or afternoon.  Change up the message to incorporate the Teacher’s name, School name (and colors) or just to say WELCOME BACK!  The possibilities are endless!

I hope you will use my project as a jumping-off point to showcase your Kunin Creativity and create some classroom decor!  Felt is an easy, versatile and forgiving medium which allows you to create affordable but trendy projects whether you are a beginner or an expert crafter!
