Monday Made It #3

Photo of After Table
This week I have been really busy.  I have been thinking about my classroom and what I could do to make it more Wolfelicious!  So, I am joining the Monday Made It to share with you what I have been working on.

The first think I would like to share my redone table.
Unfortunately, I forgot to take a before picture.  The table I started with was green.  Here is a picture of the table after I painted it this lovely blue color.

After I painted it I got this idea of Modge Podge.  I knew I had to use it to make this table Wolfelicious!  I bought scrapbook paper at Michael's and Modge Podged it on the table.  Here is how it turned out.

I can't believe how different it looks.  It is now Wolfelicious.

Next I made Birthday Balloons for my kiddos.

Thanks Brooke Hilderbrand for this awesome Freebie!!
(Click HERE to read and see the balloons from last year.)

I have been working on new dismissal signs for my classroom.  I knew I wanted to make them into stars and I wanted them to be glittery.  This is what I came up with.

I am waiting until I find out how my kiddos are going home to hang them up.
You can check them out at TPT.

I loved my first pocket chart so much that I decided to redo another one.  You can check out my first one here.  Here is the before picture.

And Ta- Daaaaaa.  Here is the after.

I think this one turned out to be Wolfelicious too! :)

Then I bought some baskets at Target at the end of last year.  I bought a black, white, and a teal colored basket.  Since I had left over spray paint I thought I would paint the teal basket blue.  Then I had to jazz it up to make them Wolfelicious baskets.

After.  I will place one basket at each of my tables for trash.

The last think I worked on was updating some of my pictures on the picture wall.  I didn't switch all of them, just some to add the baby.
 I can't believe how old my oldest looks in the blue tunnel picture.

Thanks for reading today!!  I hope you got a new idea to make your room a Wolfelicious room!

Monday or Tuesday Made It

Last week was super busy for me. Wednesday we left for Ohio and got back late Monday night or actually you could say Tuesday morning.  

Ohio is where I am originally from.  We went to visit family and to go to my cousins wedding.  It was a great trip and a beautiful wedding!  I love being able to see all my family.  It makes me sad that my boys don't get to be with my family all the time.  Here is a couple pictures from the trip.

Liam is all packed and ready for our trip!

Liam got to ride a tractor on our trip!  He loved that!  He drove the tractor over and over again.

I made one of these a couple of years ago for another bride.  She loved it so I thought my cousin would love it too.  I think it is such a great present.  

Last week I posted my letter K I made for my classroom.  Well, I just wasn't happy with it.  I decided to paint my name red to match my theme.  I like it so much better now.

I have such a great model! 

When I went to the best place on Earth (Hobby Lobby) I bought some letters for my boys.  I thought they would look perfect above my sons giant bed.  Here is a before picture although one of the letters is completed.  I forgot to take the before pic so I am using this one since it is close.

Since my older boy loves super heroes I thought putting comics on the letters would make them look perfect.  I had seen some of these on Pinterest and one of my friends had showed me what she did.  I knew I had to try it.  I had decided I didn't want to cover all the letters with comics, only some.  Here is how it turned out.

I used velcro to attach them to the wall.  Here is how they looked in the room.

There was just something about it that I didn't like.  So, I decided to paint the white letters blue. (Liam's favorite color.)

Now, I love how they turned out!!!

Monday Made It

Photo of WOlfelicious 
I am FINALLY joining the Made it Monday linky for the summer.  I can't believe this is my first time this summer?  I feel like such a slacker compared to how often I joined last year.

Anyways, I have finally started working on some new things.

Have you seen the frame that says first day of school on it and the students takes their picture with it?  Well, another teacher had an awesome idea to use a K.  How perfect?!!  The grade the child is in and different than the frame.  I just loved this idea so I HAD to make a K for my kiddos.  Fitting my classroom theme, of course!

Here are the supplies I got.

I spray painted the K black!

Modge Podge the K.  Oh, how I love saying Modge Podge. Modge Podge.  It is just such a fun word to say.

Ta- Da!!!!!  I added my name on it so they could always remember me. :)  (I may paint the letters a different color because they blend in so much!)  What do you think?

 Here is my want to be kindergartener holding my K.   What a great model!!!

 I do love it but I do think the letters may look better red or blue or green!

I love pocket charts.  This year I wanted to add some more excitement to mine.  Here is the before picture.

Here is my after picture.  I love how this turned out too.  The zebra print duck tape was SO easy to use.  I am amazed at how different it looks.

 Another item I made was my Zebra Print Bunting!! (I added the bunting to my TPT store!)  It says Kindergarten going across my windows.  It looks so good!  The last flag on the document is editable so you could make it say whatever you would like.

As you can see I have been a busy beaver right at the end of the summer.  Only 2 week left!!!!  Ahhhhh!!

Thanks for stopping by!
