While I LOVE how sturdy my book bins are ($1.00 at Big lots 6 years ago), but they are PLAIN!
I just have so much stuff!!! OY!
Once my room is finished, I will have a BIG reveal, but here is ONE picture of my progress! :)
Now, I am here to give you the few Monday Made It's I created. I am linking up with 4th Grade Frolics, be sure to go look at all the awesome creative teachers out there. Last Monday, I had an amazing 1, 155 visitors on my blog because of her site!
On to my Made its!
Made It Number 1
Easy Hanging Option!
This, I honestly have NEVER seen anyone use this, so I am officially claiming it as MY idea! You heard it here first, folks!
I was so sick of hot gluing all my things on the wall, and having them all fall halfway through the year. DROVE.ME.NUTS!
Mardel tape didn't work either- I was OVER it. So I came up with this idea...
|All you need are Sticki Stikki Clips and any size binder clip you can find.|
|I use the small binder clips since I am only hanging paper. I doubt they can handle heavier than a laminated sheet of paper|
|Here they are above in use! I have two small ones holding up my welcome sign. They will hold all year.|
Last year, I held every anchor chart I made, and all student work in the hallway!
|Here is an up close look at them holding my hand painted Dr. Seuss drawing.|
|This is them holding my MelonHeadz clip art friend. - They will stay put all year!|
Say thank you!!!!! You are quite welcome!!!
Made It Number 2
Homemade Bulletin Board
|Isn't it so pretty?!|
I got the R Max sheathing from Home Depot and had them cut it into three equal pieces. The board is 4ft x 8ft so it makes 3 great bulletin boards.
|It is only 1/2 of an inch and takes push pins easily.|
Lay your fabric on the floor
Grab an electric staple gun - I invested in a power one and it is so much better!
|Fold the corners like you would a present|
|These are the staples that I used so they don't come all the way through.|
|This is how they look after you complete all three, but of course, I wanted a border.|
|I started by using ribbon by the yard at Joann with my 40% off coupon. I wrapped it around and stapled|
|Isn't it a beauty?|
|I just love how they turned out. I also bought more border to go around the other two.|
|TO attach it to the wall, I used 1' rings. They pierce right through the material|
|You have to put it on the edge like this so that it can't move around or it won't lie on the wall right.|
|Then add a command hook. I used the 3 lb each ones although I doubt it comes near 6 pounds.|
Made It Number 3
|I will use this on the first day for the kids to hold! I LOVE it.|
|Trace a one. It doesn't matter if you mess up, cause it will get covered!|
|Make sure you double it because you need a back.|
|You also need to make sides|
|Then I taped it all together with the only tape I had. Purple|
|This is to show you how big it is - It is pretty big!|
|Then I started adding my ribbon around it.|
|I made sure to pattern it.|
|I just love how it turned out! I can't wait to use it!|
