Monday Made It (a little late this week)

After a week long trip to Oregon to visit family, I am back and have started slowly working on things for next school year. We have linked up with 4th Grade Frolics for the weekly "Monday Made It".

Sign Make-Over
This is a sign I made for my last classroom. I decorated with turquoise and lime green. I had those colors for a few years, so I decided to change for next year. I have decided on a Sports theme. The colors will be mostly black, white, green, blue, and orange. The blue and orange are for our local college football team. Go Gators! 
So, I am trying to reuse items in my classroom. I decided to just paint this since I enjoy using it to hang up pictures during the year. This is what it looked like last year.
I painted it blue. The "H" was painted orange.I put Gator ribbon and a logo in the corner. The clothespins were already dark blue, so I just painted around them. Here it is now:
Fast and Easy White Board Change

This took less than five minutes to do. I bought this cute small white board at Target last year. I hung it above where I displayed student work and changed the titles of the work. The trim was turquoise.

I hot glued black ribbon over the turquoise, and now it will match my new room.

Tropical Fun Themed Welcome Sign

I have seen the cutest tropical themed items this summer! If I had seen them earlier, I may have chosen that as a theme for my classroom next year. A teacher friend of mine is doing this theme- with an emphasis on flamingos. So, I have been designing things for her. 
Here is a FREE Welcome sign I have posted on Teachers Pay Teachers. The letters come in both pink and green. You can click here (or on the picture) to download your own banner.

Whimsical Succulent Garden

I saw this cute little pot for planting succulents. It's from Amazon. It was very easy. I just bought soil for succulents and three succulent plants. Here are the pictures:
