Monday Made It July 25

This is my last week before I start back to school. I am linking up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for 
My first made it is a back to school gift for the new teachers I will be working with. I used cute scrapbook paper and cut it to the size of the frame and added their initial. 

My second made it was inspired by a friend on Facebook. I looked everywhere for a tutorial and couldn't find one. I painted the wood a dark brown and used burlap ribbon to make the cross. I hot glued the ribbon on the back and scrunched the middle together and secured it with hot glue as well. Lastly,  I added the center piece. I love how it turned out!

 I finally finished my chair I showed a few weeks ago. I bought stickers from Michaels and voila made a Happy Birthday chair!

This made it comes from Pocket of Preschool. You can click her image above to see her original post. I had a foam board already laying around the house so I utilized that to make my display for my kiddos. I am really looking forward to using this as a visual for my students in helping them make great choices. She has a lot of cool stuff in her TPT store. Be sure to check her out!

I am off to check out all of the other inspirations for my last week off!
