Monday Made It: September (A Day Late)

I've been busy working on all kinds of project this past month, but I was a little behind writing about all of them!  Here is my Made It Monday: September!  Sorry it's a day late!



 I really wanted some kind of whole class reward system for both of my classes.  I found this at First Grader at Last.


Here is my version

I used a little washi tape to spruce up the pans.  I found the brownie image through Google and they look so real!!!!

 My second project was quite the under taking!  My huge wall of windows needed some curtains! This is the final product!


I used lots of math to complete this project and you can read about the details here on my Math IS Real Life post for September.
Finally, here is a little tutorial for making a burlap wreath.


Here all of the supplies I used.  I bought the burlap at Wally world for $3 a yard!


Cut the burlap into 4 inch strips.  This little tip was a life saver for making straight cuts!



Cut squares that are approximately 4 x 4 inches.


This is how may squares I got out of my yard of fabric.


Fold each square so it bubbles.  I tried to pin them on the wreath but they didn't stay.  I resorted to hot glue and that worked great!


Here is the first row complete.


Keep adding burlap bubbles until you are satisfied with the look.  I glued some of bubbles together so you couldn't see the wreath.  


Here is the final product!  I glued some fall colored flowers to the side and it looks so cute!  It is now hanging on my classroom door showing that I am ready for fall regardless of the temps in the 90's!  

Don't forget to go check out all of the other projects for the month!

  2. Oh I love that wreath! Too cute! :) I wonder if I could do it so I could change out the "accent" each month?! I'm going to try it!
