Hey guys! I've been on a mini vacation and super busy moving into my new school, so I've been saving up a few of my craft projects for this post. I'm excited to get to link up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics for today's
I saw this kind of bulletin board trim on Pinterest a few weeks back and thought I'd give it a try. It took a little longer than stapling up boarder, but I think it adds a nice pop of color to the room.
I have also been working on my clothespins. This set I will use to display a few things in the classroom, but I will also use them to display student work in our hallway. It was super easy. Measure, cut, hot glue, viola!
This set will be used for various things throughout the room like: clip charts, important reminders, notes home, ect...
I saw this on Pinterest also but it called for using RIT dye. I had four different colors I needed, so I didn't want to pay that much for dye. I decided to use food coloring instead. As you can see, they came out a little too light in color, so I placed a drop of food coloring on the clothespin while it was still wet and spread it out with a paint brush. A bit more tedious than dropping them in a vat of colored dye, but was a very cheap project.
