I recently found a bag of school rulers at Goodwill and snatched them up because I remembered pinning a cute wreath made out of them and thought I’d give that a try. I found a few more fun projects to make with rulers and yardsticks that I thought I’d share with you.

Back to school sales will start soon so if you don’t have a bunch of rulers already, you can get some then.
Repurposed Ruler Projects
This is the wreath I pinned. The kids around here go back to school next month. This would be so cute as a teacher gift or in a back to school vignette or for your schoolroom if you homeschool. Be sure to check out the great tutorial for this ruler wreath by Polka Dot Chair.
