20 Back to School DIY Organizers!



The new school year is just around the corner and there’s so much to get ready. One thing you can do now in preparation for the first day is giving your desk or homework area a makeover. It has been shown that having a well kept and organized space to work at helps lower distractions and boosts productivity – that’s great for students of all ages.

To keep you or your child’s workspace organized and looking cute, I’ve gathered 20 DIY organizer tutorials to share with you. I found some really ingenious organizers by some seriously crafty people. Upcycling items you normally would just toss in the trash and making them into cubbies, supply holders, and organizers is a fab way to help your student as well as the Earth. Grab your scissors, tape, glue, and craft supplies as you make some of the easiest and most useful DIY items out there!
