MONDAY MADE IT!

It's time for Monday Made It on my SUPER SUMMER SCHEDULE! I'm linking up again with Tara over at 4th Grade Frolics for her Monday Made It linky party! Stop by and add your craft to her linky party :]


I decided today i was going to do Glitter Clothespins in the colors of the ocean. When I get a classroom, I plan on making my theme ocean-y and so I chose to do my clothes pins in blues and greens. I made 7 of each color and I'm really happy with the way they came out!

MATERIALS:
Mod Podge
Clothespins
Glitter
Foam brush

I'm not going to provide a step by step since it was an easy-ish project! But, here's kinda how it went:

I just took the clothespins, put Mod Podge on with my foam brush, then dipped the clothespins in glitter that I poured out on styrofoam plates. Then, I set them on another styrofoam plate to let them dry. Once they were pretty much dry, I took my foam brush and put another layer of Mod Podge on top to "seal" the glitter on.




I really like the dark blue and dark green the best, but hey, ya live and ya learn! :]

I did get this idea, though, from another blogger. Check out Katie's post on Building a House of Love for her last week's Monday Made It!

PS. I also made my teacher toolbox!! I featured it on Friday, but I'm posting it here again for you all to see because I'm really proud of it!! :]
