I have made a bunch of amazing stuff over the summer thanks to all the ideas shared on Monday Made Its. I am going to share two (maybe three?) with you all today! Eeeeeeee! Can you hear my squeals of excitement???
Ok. First off, is something that I saw on Pinterest and later on Tara's blog and then on Create.Teach.Share. I'm pretty sure NO ONE else has done one...yeah right!! It's my Teacher Toolbox! I love it and I can't wait to use it. When I get back into my classroom, I will take a picture of it all set up, but for now here it is on my craft table.
Ok. Now for number two. I was super-inspired by Tara's "Believe" sign from a few Monday Made Its ago:
I loved how the letters popped out and the circles were just too cute! I love the word "believe" too, but what I needed was a welcome sign! I went over to Hobby Lobby, which I love almost as much as Target, and gathered up my supplies.
|You might be noticing that the letters don't fit...I'll get to that in a second!|
I bought canvas, acrylic paint, wooden small-ish letters, a black paint pen and brushes. My husband supplied the spray paint from the garage! I forgot to put the stencils I used in this picture, but I used stencils!
First, I spray painted the letters. In no particular order. (When I say "I" spray painted, I mean my husband.)
Well, you would think I would have some more pictures of the process. But I don't. Because I get VERY INVOLVED in my projects...like super crazy intense and I forget to take pictures. BUT, I do have a picture of the finished product. I stenciled the flowers with the paint, added the black outlining and dots with the paint pen, hot glued the letters on and TA-DA! A welcome sign for my classroom!

Ok, ok. One more because I have been a busy, busy bee and I want to share! I made
I used the directions from The Frugal Girls, but there are lots of options out there! Before I made this one, I also made a small one. I think I will use them as gifts for my co-workers! :-) This project introduced me to my new BFF - Mod Podge! I will be using that on everything I can think of from now on.
Whew! Ok then...first Monday Made It (for me) in the books! Stay tuned for more crafts and even an Ikea adventure in the very near future!
Have a great day everyone! Thanks for visiting!
