I had lots of things made this week! Monday Made It always gets me moving!
The first item is for my woodland themed classroom for this upcoming year. I saw these little trash bins at the Dollar Tree. When I saw them I realized they could be transformed into the perfect useful accents for my room. I quickly purchased six of them. I then ran around looking for white ones so that I could use red tops and white bottoms for the design, but just my luck…no white ones. So I decided to give spray paint a try. Turns out, using spray paint is easier than I thought.
They went from this:
Here is a closeup:
I am so happy with how they turned out! The white dots were cut out of vinyl using a paper punch and a circle die cut.
Each table will have a trash bin so that the kids don’t have to get up to throw their scraps away. One person can throw the trash out at the end of the day. This will cut down the time wasted when doing interactive journals and craftivities 🙂 Thanks to Lauren from Sunglasses on My Head for sharing this idea!
My next made it is for my students’ birthdays. I thought of making one of these a very long time ago and decided to make one this summer. While I was browsing around for my trash bins I saw these:
I picked up two for a girl and boy. The only problem was that they are
too big for student chairs 🙁 They’re even too large for my dinning room
chairs as you can see below.
Since I recently learned how to sew, I decided to customize them and make them
fit my student chairs. Unfortunately I didn’t have the dimensions at
home, so I winged it.
On Friday I was able to stop by school and try ou tthe covers and they fit!
I am so glad I found these! Finding them all made saved me lots of time and money. Trimming them down and sewing them back up took me about 15 minutes 🙂
My friend Kris, decided she’s going to do a Super Hero theme this upcoming year. She asked if I could make her some organizational boxes, so I got right to it. First up is the toolbox:
Next are the weekly drawers for lesson printables:
Last up, a freebie for all of you. I love making freebies 🙂 Click on the picture below for your copy.
My birthday and anniversary were on Saturday and I made our cake. I’m still learning how to work with buttercream, but I was happy with it.
