Monday Made It: September Edition

I am so excited to be linking up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Made It!

I got a couple projects finished. I've been painting in the library again. I had a beige book cart. It's not beige anymore. Did I remember to take a picture? Nope. It's just fire engine red. My students were commenting a couple weeks ago how I hadn't painted it. My red desk it hard to miss... Just trust me, it's bright red.

Back in the summer I made a wreath for my door out of an old book. Click here for that post. I didn't like the way it looked on the beige metal door. I moved it to the wooden conference room door. Looks much better. Then I needed a wreath for my door. Did a quick search on Pinterest. Found several colorful wreaths and thought I could make one.

Was inspired by a wreath from Heed Over Heels For Teaching and one from  Delyno's Crafts:



Thanks, Ladies for the great ideas!

I combined their ideas/projects and came up with the following. I hot glued it to the glass so I had to decorate both sides. From the front it looks like:



From the back:



I didn't get it totally straight, but it will do. Hopefully I won't get too OCD over it. It's made from red copy paper and cupcake holders. I only spent $2 for the cupcake holders. Not too bad on the wallet, hubby is thrilled! Don't forget to check out the rest of the Monday Made Its on Tara's Blog - 4th Grade Frolics.

Happy Reading!!!
