I am not crafty.
There I said it. I have all of these grand ideas (spurred on in no small part by the HGTV channel and Pinterest.) But somehow, they just never get done. I mean, I can put up a bulletin board with fancy borders, but when it comes to making things....that is best left to the experts.
HOWEVER, I can do simple things. So that is what this Monday Made It with 4th Grade Frolics is. A simple little craft that I thought would be cute in my classroom. (and, yes, I am aware it is Tuesday...but I am on Summer time here....)
Every year, we take school pictures and, every year, I get the class composite. I have NO idea what to do with it so usually, I do nothing. Well, not this year. I have made a nice EASY frame to put it in. :)
|Secret #2....I am not actually in Room 6 :)|
Here is how I did it.
Step 1: Gather materials (wooden frame, wooden tile letters, cording, 2 push pins, wooden number, acrylic paint, glue)
Step 2: Paint the number and the frame in desired colors. I choose black and white because they are neutral. Usually our composite picture is blue, so I figured it would go well. Plus, the black and white will match any color scheme I choose for my room.
Step 3: String up the letters to spell the word "Room". I tied each letter in place on the cording. I didn't want them flopping around.
Step 5: Glue on the wooden number. Be careful of placement, as you don't want any students to be covered up once you put in the picture.
Step 6: Place the composite picture in and, viola, you are done!
So that is about as crafty as I can be right now. Easy and to the point on my craftiness :) What have you made this summer?
