Monday Made It! {June 30, 2014}

Yay!  It's time for another Monday Made It!  Be sure to head on over to Tara's blog, 4th Grade Frolics, to see all of the awesome things people have been making.

This year, I am reusing the same classroom theme that I had last year.  I've never done this.  I have theme commitment issues- bwahaha.  Lame humor aside, it's the truth.  However, I really do love my rock star theme, so this summer I am planning to just add to my theme, rather than recreate everything from scratch.  Best.idea.ever.

I made this rockin' sign to hang on the wall space above my drinking fountain.

It is the perfect size for this wall space.  I found the frame on clearance at Michael's for $6!  How could I not buy it?  I made the picture and sent it to Costco for printing since I cannot print on 11x14 inch paper at home.  The colors are a bit off from the original, but I'm not that picky (despite popular belief).

The frame is super bling-tastic.  It was really hard to get pictures of it to show just how blingy it is, but here are a few close ups.  I love it!

If you teach second grade, and you think it rocks (um, it totally does), then you're in luck!  Click here for a copy of the "Second Grade Rocks" sign, if you can use it.  Simply download it to your computer and save it to your hard drive!

I also made more tissue poms. I have these hanging from my classroom ceiling, and I have a cluster on one of my classroom walls.  Of course, that's simply not enough pom pom action for this teacher lady!  They are so easy to make.  Every year, I use this tutorial from Schoolgirl Style.

I'm going to use this cluster of poms to accent the bling-tastic frame.

My last made it is a small cluster/collection of glittery stars.  Again, hard to photograph, and I don't know why the top right star looks like the edges are unpainted..they are!  Weird.

I got the wooden star shapes at Michael's and then painted them with two coats of solid acrylic paint.  Then, I put several (as in probably six) coats of the coordinating glitter paint on top of the solid.   

I initially thought I would hang these with the bling-tastic frame, but I didn't like them together.  Instead, I'm going to just place them wherever they fit once I go back in August to set up my room.  Trust me, I'll find them a home.  

And, those are my Monday Made Its!  Don't forget to head on over to Tara's to see more great made its!

  1. I am also keeping my classroom theme the same (Under the Sea). Yes, it is very played out and I made the mistake of choosing it but I spent SO MUCH MONEY on it that I can't force myself to completely change my theme. Maybe it's because last year was my first year to teach so I experienced just how much it takes to get a room ready ;)

    Anyways, I absolutely adore those tissue poms! I will try that this year and maybe make them jellyfish haha :)


  2. You room is going to look so cute with these new additions! We did the rock star theme last year. I teach second grade, too! Thank you so much for the sign! I hope you have a terrific summer.
