More than chicken nuggets...

Last week was my very first post on 4th Grade Folics "Monday made it."  I loved it!  Such a blast!  I'm so thrilled to be back again with another post for...

I am proving to myself that I really am capable of making more than just chicken nuggets.  Who knew?!

If you have been following my blog at all you know that I am in love with Schoolgirl Style for classroom decor.  This year I am using her Preppy Nautical theme.  

I made this banner just by printing out the labels and attaching it to a piece of ribbon. The whale and anchor, I cut out and glued onto the green/white striped paper that is also part of the set.  Here's some close ups:

I also made this adorable pencil vase from an idea I saw on Pinterest. 

I literally hot glued those pencils onto a dog food can. True story.  It was all I had on hand. Don't judge.  :)

 Last but not least, I made some "I can" statements for the Common Core Standards to post in the classroom.  They are a neon chalkboard design that are on sale in my TPT store.

I'm really starting to like this crafty thing.  I have no idea what I'll do next week but this is too fun to miss!

    Take care,

  4. The pencil vase is so cute - no one will ever need to know it is a dog food can : ) Love the banner too!

  5. LOL I love this post! I recently became "crafty" too - and I don't know where it came from! I have never been a crafter in my life! I started one little project for my new classroom and now I can't stop! I'm teaching 9th grade - so my crafts are a little "older"- but I LOVE what you have in this post! I've been blogging about all my "travel themed" crafts, too!

  6. Julie,

    Ok. Your crafty stuff is awesome and I am very impressed...but I'm more impressed with the fact that it is summer and you are looking pretty fancy in that crafting pic! LOL! I love the nautical theme!

    Best wishes!
