Thanks for stopping by and Happy Halloween tomorrow!
|I spray painted these tired blue and previously orange crates to navy and red to go along with our school wide patriotic theme.|
|Did you know that Rust-oleum has spray paint for plastic now? They have an array of colors to choose from. Just my luck they had navy and an apple red I liked.|
|The hubster cut out plywood that would fit just inside the crate and on the lip of the inside. I had some patriotic material in my material tub and some leftover foam from another project and staple gunned it over the plywood.|
|Finished product! I made 4 of these and the kids really like them.|
|Each crate contains one cd player, a book, cd and a response sheet. |
Except for the drying time of the paint this project took very little time to put together. I love the portability of the centers and organization of the listening center components all in one place. This is sooooo easy for my first graders to take care of when they are done. Thanks for stopping by and maybe you'll want to try this project out and see for yourself!
|Lisa Watson. This started as a new craft....taught to a bunch of friends while on a recent camping outing. We all brought an old sheet and a big crochet hook. (available at any craft store or even Meijer.) Take a full size sheet that is ripped into one long strip. Starting at one end of a sheet and ripping across the sheet cut a little slit about 1 1/2 inches wide. Rip the sheet across until you get about an inch from the edge...then cut a slit 1 1/2 inches from that point and rip back across the sheet. It is easiest if you have one person rolling the sheet into a great big yarn ball while you are ripping the sheet all the way to the end. Once your ball is done, start chaining 6 chain stitches...then join the next stitch into the "first" chain to make a circle. Continue to single crochet around the circle until you get to the desired size. You could add other colors to the sheets if desired. These could be used for rugs or seat cushions.|
|Three project supplies, black glitter, craft glue and wax paper|
|Sprinkle black glitter onto the glue and let dry.|
|Here are the three glittery spiders. Cuter when the sun is shining on them because they sparkle!|
Halloween Fairy, come out, come out, whoever you are!!! I want to thank you for giving me a slice of happy pie!!

|Less than a yard of leftover jean fabric and stick on stars purchased at Hobby Lobby made this twinkle lam|
|Took off an old lamp cover and used fabric glue to wind red, white and blue yarn around the shade. Easy peasy. My advice would be to place the yarn closer together and give it a tighter look. But I really like the light that reflect from the shade. Fun project!|
