Where has the summer gone? I get really depressed when I think about all of the Monday-Made-Its I completed last year and realize that I haven't completed even ONE this year!
Well, seeing that yesterday I realized that I go back to work NEXT WEEK, I have been in frenzy mode today!
And, in all of that bustle, I finally have a Monday-Made-It....not saying how great it is, but I did "make" it! ;)
I've been wondering what to use for my hall display this year. Last year, I bought canvases and had a "painting party" on the first day of school where each of my little Mon-STARS created their very own monster display. What was I thinking??!?
I wanted to go a different route this year. ;)
I found these wooden frames at Michael's.
They were stubborn. After spending about 10 minutes trying to get the first sticker off and being left with 1,589 itty-bitty pieces of sticker, I remembered a trick I had seen on pinterest!
I used the hairdryer to heat up each sticker (10-20 seconds) and then they peeled right off without leaving any residue! Holla! I LOVE that pinterest! The hairdryer "melts" the adhesive and stickers or labels come right off after being heated! Woot!
Meanwhile, I used washi tape to cover some clothespins.
Here is the final product.
I also REmade my center signs and rotation cards....
