Monday Made It

Good morning!!
I'm so thrilled to link up with Tara at 4th grade Frolics for my 1st Monday Made It! I'm pretty addicted to crafts so the fact that I can now document them is AMAZING!



So here goes!



I've really wanted to make a large magnetic board to put in the playroom and my classroom. So off to walmart I went. I picked up 2 huge oil drip pans from the car department. They were only $12 each! Then I snatched up some cute duct tape, command strips and tissue paper. 


The duct tape is to cover the words on the top.





This was actually the hardest part of the project and it wasn't even that bad! My favorite kind of projects are the easy ones!!! The reason this was hard was because I bought a patterned ducktape and I had to line up the patterns.



Next I made tissue pom-poms, except I only fluffed them up in one direction. They are more like tissue flowers!

After I made a green one I decided I wanted to add more colors. Then it was time to glue them on.



I just put a huge glob of hot glue on the bottom of each flower.



I bundled them up in the corner and then got to work doodling!





And now the finished project....




Stay tuned for a new post on how I plan to use this in my classroom!

  4. Thanks for the motivation...I plan on making one for lunch count. I like the duct tape idea and flowers...I usually get packaged, curled ribbon, but I like the idea that the flowers will match my classroom colors.
