Monday Made It!

Hello!  August is already just flying by - can you believe it?  School starts for me very soon and I know it has started for others already, which is CRAZY!  I am happy to write that I did some actual crafty things besides creating school things, LOL!  So I am happy to link up again with Tara over at 4th Grade Frolics!
 First, while I was at Michael's I found this...
I knew what I wanted to make a teacher bunting sign and got to work as soon as I got home.
First, I cut out the bottom.
Then with the back of my sponge brush, I made it all polka dot cute!
I used black to write my name and added a black border because it needed a bit more
I simply used some twine I had and hot glued each letter.  I can't wait to put it up in my room!  What do you think?
Now this, this has been in the making for three years, LOL!  I bought this side table at the goodwill 3 years ago.  And it took me that long to get my act together and paint it.  I used some heavy duty primer/paint spray paint.  And I love the way it turned out.  Looks profesh - right?  Just tell me it does, even if it doesn't!
I've made quite a few new teacher items, but I think my latest is my most fun.  I have seen out in teacher blogland many teachers using an interactive Word Wall and  I knew it was something that was right up my alley.  So...I put this together.
I had to make it Melonheadz cute.  It is already printed, laminated and cut ready to put in my room next week!  Click on the picture or here if you want to check it out!  It's on sale for $2 right now.

That's it!  I can't wait to see what you all have been up to...have a great one!


  1. I love your bunting and side table! I just spray painted a few things for my Monday Made It :) I have been on the lookout for a side's great to know that with a little spray paint it could turn out as awesome as yours!

  2. Your bunting and side table look amazing! I love the colours of the bunting and the black border really makes it stand out.
