I don't know about you all, but I've been busy making stuff! Monday Made It is my absolute favorite linky because I love making stuff! Be sure to link up with Tara over at 4th grade Frolics and show us all what you made! Here are the things I made this week...
These are my pencil cans...I bought the little buckets in the Target $ spot and made the dots and letters with my Cricut! Another project was the duct tape pencil flags for my pencils that I let the students borrow. Cupcakes for the girls and flames for the boys!
This is my EZ grader stand. One of the dear (now retired) teacher friends made this for me a few years ago. She was so handy with wood and saws! I stuck a small piece of scrapbook paper in it so you can see how it works. I repainted it and added some cute lettering to it for this year!
This is my teacher toolbox! Pinterest inspired of course from this awesome teacher blog! I used a slightly different box than most but this one was bigger and only a few dollars more. I added a few rhinestones to mine too which you can see in the close-up pic!
This one was super easy and I''m not in love with it, but it will do! I used scrapbook stickers for this one. It's my hi-liter bucket (Target $ spot again) that I will put next to my turn-in basket for the kids to highlight their names before they turn in their papers. I used the hi-liter spelling from the Avery brand markers and it looks wrong to me, but it was shorter and fit the can better.
Next up is my hall pass sign. I took a board I already had that I didn't like and decoupaged squares of scrapbook paper on it. The lettering was written with glue and covered in black glitter (do yourself a favor and be patient enough for the mod podge to COMPLETELY dry before you sprinkle glitter over it! I made a mess and there are still flecks of black glitter all over it, but you can only see it close up!) I haven't decided if I am going to use these glittered clothespins or plain painted ones yet.
Last up is a home made it.....The four small frames you see were all yard sale finds....well actually everything on the wall was found at a yard sale or thrift store! The larger two matching frames were a quarter each and the other two were about the same (I've had them for a while and don't remember). For the two biggest ones, I took a cute card and a chevron print zipper bag from the Target $ spot and cut them to fit. The other two were made from a cupcake box and cupcake liners that I had on hand. I loved the graphic designs and knew they would be cool in the frames. What do you think? I have a couple more things to add to this wall so next week it will probably look a little different...:)
And before I go.....
