Lookie what I made!



Another Monday Made it in the house! Whoop Whoop! :) This craft was inspired by these glitter clothes pins that have been floating around the blogger world and Pinterest.
 (Click on picture for actual pin, these are not mine.)

So yes, I was inspired.  However, as much as I love glitter I didn't want to use it in the classroom because the clothes pins will be used a lot and out in the hallway.  I already have three long pieces of string outside my door that I use to hang work up with clothes pins.  (I apologize for no picture, but as soon as I return to the school I will take a picture.)



Anywho :), I went to Hobby Lobby and decided to try scrap book paper instead.  So I cut the paper into tiny clothes pin sizes...

I added some water to my Elmer's glue, thanks Lisa!  :)  


And I created almost 60 beautiful clothes pins that will add just a cute detail in my classroom. :)


Thank you for stopping by! :) Don't forget to check out the other Monday Made it's at Fourth Grade Frolics! :)

    1. I love the glitter ones. I might make some to put in places where they aren't being used a whole lot.

  5. These turned out great! I like these better than the glitter clothespins for my hallway, too. I hot glue a thumb tack on the back and use them on my bulletin board in the hallway. Students get to change out work they are proud of to display in the hall. I'm thinking I'll be looking through my scrapbook paper (as soon as I can get to my supplies) and makin' some of these babies.

    1. I saw the thumb tack idea and thought that was awesome. However, we don't have bulletin boards outside our door, just a beautiful cement wall. Lol.
