These are some Pinterest inspired projects I have created.
PROJECT: TO DO LISTS in frames with homemade bows.
I made the to do list on power point with KPM Doodles.
Below are the steps I used for making a cute bow.
Step 1: Drape the longest piece of ribbon over your hand, wrapping twice so that the ends of the ribbon face opposite directions.
Step 2: Place the folded ribbon on a flat surface.
Step 3: Gather and pinch the center of the ribbon to create a bow.
Step 4: I pulled and messed with the ribbon while pinching it to make it look full and cute.
Step 5: Cut a long ribbon (about 7 inches)
Step 6: Wrap and tie the ribbon around the center of the bow.
Cut the extra ribbon.
Step 7: Use the extra ribbon and hot glue it to the back of the bow to add more flavor.
Step 8: Hot glue it to the top left side of the frame and cut the ribbon to your desired length.
These are some of the To Do List frames I made for my kinder-teacher friends down in KINDERWORLD.
Use a white board marker to write your to-do lists!!!
PROJECT: Reading Phones
Step 1: Buy PVC Pipe from Home Depot
(I bought 2 bags above)
Step 2: Buy on a long PVC Pipe and cut 24 two inch pieces.
Step 3: Attach the PVC Pipe together so it looks like a phone.
Step 4: Spray paint them red (or the color of your choice)
Step 5: The next day, I put a second coat of spray paint on them.
I now have a class set of reading phones that can be used during the Daily Five.
PROJECT: Adorable and Decorated Clothespins
(I use them to hang up art projects)
Step 1: I measured and cut paper to fit on a clothespin
and used Hodge Podge to glue it down.
I also put a top coat of it on the top of the paper.
Step 2: I hot glued buttons, rhinestones and raffia to the clothespins.
Below are some clothespins I made for my bedroom:
I got this cork board at Home Goods and added wire and scapbook paper for details.
I hang the clothespins on the wire and use it to display pictures, notes, reminders, etc.
PROJECT: Distressed Door for my bedroom
(I must admit, I found this door in the garage can at my daughter's preschool. The Pinterista in me, knew I could create something cute from it).
Step 1: Clean it! It was filthy!
Step 2: Add distress marks on it with a hammer, drill, etc.
Step 3: Paint it white.
Step 4: The next day, put on a second coat (I used spray paint)
Step 5: Spray paint it the color of your choice.
I love turquoise so much right now!
