Are you ready for back to school season? Help get your kids excited about the new year with this cute display by Carissa from Carissa Miss! She made this fun apple sign with Vanilla Frosting and Devotion.

Even though our school starts in the heat of August, it still feels like fall! Maybe it’s everything getting back to a routine? Or maybe it’s cause it’s apple and peach season. Whatever the reason, I’m definitely okay with it! I can go sit out at the pool for a couple weeks more but then enjoy the beauty of the leaves starting to change on the mountain tops. Ahhh.

I can’t relax tooo much though. Back to school time means all the rush of schedules and teachers and no naps…you know what I mean! I put together a fun back to school entry way.

It’s all free-handed, which I think adds to the vintage charm!

I’m Carissa from Carissa Miss. I love all things DIY, especially trying to make my own versions of pricey designer items. Like my DIY farmhouse table, this Ikea RAST hack, or these vertical stripe curtains. I love working with e-design clients to transform a space from blah to wow! Here’s a gallery of some of the inspiration boards I’ve created.
