Monday Made It

I can't believe the summer is going by so quickly! I have been trying to slowly do some crafts for my classroom without going on school overload. I'm trying to relax this summer.

Here are some things I have finished:
These letters are from the word "DREAM" I had up on my class cabinets the past couple of years. I decided to reuse the letters to spell"READ" in my class library.

I painted them in a darker blue. Then, I used Mod Podge to attach sports cut-outs that I had at home. The Gator heads are cut out from a roll of ribbon. This was a quick change (once the paint dried) that I think will add something to my class library.

I ordered this wooden football shape with an "H" from Zulily for my classroom. (It was only $10). It is a very nice thick wood. I just used paint to transform it. Again, some blue paint for the "H".

I am planning to attach it to my classroom wall with Command velcro. I have a walkway area in my new classroom and I think this will be perfect there.

This was a quick and easy craft. This is a wooden ipad/cookbook stand I used in the kitchen. I no longer really use it. So, I decided to use it on my desk at school for my Erin Condren Teacher Planner. It fits perfectly.

I painted it white and used Gator ribbon to decorate it.

That's it for this week. Having my wisdom teeth out last Thursday has slowed me down some. I have a few more projects I want to do before going back to my classroom. (We can't get back in until the week before Teacher Planning week.)


  1. Wow. You have been super crafty. Good for you. I hope I have time for a few like projects before I have to get to the real job of planning the new year. See you around. Kathleen

  2. I am loving all these ideas! Thank you so much for sharing! You've given me some inspiration for my classroom! <3
