I am an empty nester and teacher with an addiction to decorating frugally. Whether it is decorating my classroom space or my home I want to create an environment that feels authentic and homey. I have been inspired by so many blogs this year, so I started this blog as a way of learning and sharing creatively on a budget! I hope I too can motivate and inspire others the same way I have been. I hope you join me on this journey and let me know you've stopped by.
My grade level has been assigned to decorate our school showcase for the month of October. Really, what a perfect month to blend some educational books with Halloween decor! I spotted this glittery spider web idea on Censational Girl's blog this month. She made these webs to showcase her bookshelves. They were super easy to make. You need 3 things -wax paper, craft glue and black glitter. I got the Martha Stewart glue and black glitter from Michael's. I drew the pattern on wax paper with glue. Sprinkle with black glitter. Shake off excess. I didn't have an exacto knife to cut out excess wax paper so I used a pair of super sharp and narrow nosed scissors I had. Censational Girl used the exacto knife. They turned out pretty cool and can't wait to put them in the showcase tomorrow for the kiddos to see!
Three project supplies, black glitter, craft glue and wax paper
Sprinkle black glitter onto the glue and let dry.
Cut our excess wax paper and ta-da!! Glittery spider!
