Monday Made It!

I'm linking up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics to share my "made it" this fine Monday morning. I have two Monday Made Its and one is very much non-classroom related. I already posted about my bulletin board, but I love, love, love it so much that I wanted to share it again, with the hopes of inspiriting another science teacher out there! So here it is. My Scientific Method Bulletin Board! I used cardboard scraps to cut out and paint the large shapes - the lightbulb, question mark, eye and the beaker. Then I just used t-pins to give them a 3D effect on my board. I plan on keeping this up all year! {Unless I get tired of looking at it...but the kids will use this process all year, so I thought it would be fitting to keep it up.} Anyway, I just think it's so much fun. AND it's my very first bulletin board EVER in life. {I am going into my very first year as a teacher this fall!! HOORAY!}

My second Monday Made It is a Home Monday Made It. It's my necklace hanger/organizer thingy! I love it! I just bought a piece of a 2x1 (or some derivative of that size), spray painted it with a bronzish/browinsh color that had the hammered texture {Hobby Lobby} and then bought some little drawer knobs. I LOVE the way they turned out!! (I made two since my necklace collection is ridiculous.} Thanks, Pinterest!! Love it.

 



So head on over to Tara's blog and link up with her infamous Monday Made It!

  11. LOVE this board! I teach 9th grade biology in Hoover and have been looking for something fun and functional to take up some wall space. This is perfect (if I can make mine look as good as yours)!

    1. Hi there! Thanks for stopping by. So glad you're making one for yourself! The arrows are drawn and then I just colored them in with black permanent marker. And yes, the border is 2.5" black construction paper. Let me know if you have any other questions! I'd love to see yours when you finish it!!

  13. How did you make the print for the words - is it a specific font?
