Monday Made It! My New Bookshelf for School!


      I am linking up again for Monday Made It with 4th Grade Frolics.  I love this linky because it keeps me motivated to keep crafting and working on school stuff throughout the summer as well as getting some amazing ideas from all of those fabulous bloggers out there!

       My first project was to take large wooden letters, paint, and cover them with scrapbook paper.  I created the word READ for my classroom library.  Not sure yet if it will go on the top like shown below, or somewhere else in my classroom!

       So, last week I gave you a preview to my pallet project!  I have to give credit to the Pinterest Posts that I used to inspire this craft.  Click HERE and HERE to see what Pins inspired me!  
      Here are some almost finished pictures.  Click HERE to go see last week's preview.  Then come on back and check out the final project!  I took apart two pallets, put them into one, painted it, and then used spray adhesive to attach the hand prints.  I have been covering it with Modge Podge, but I still have a few coats left to go!  My students traced their hand prints on the last few days of school.  We used a book that had fallen apart!







Have a great week!

    1. Great idea to make the other words, too! I used spray adhesive, put the letter down on the paper, and then used an exacto-knife to cute the excess off. I've done it before differently, and this was WAY easier! Have fun with your project!

  5. I love everything about this... it'll look amazing in your classroom! I love how you used a broken book to repurpose it and the fact that the hands are your students... very special.

    1. Thank you! I told my kiddos that their hand prints would be used to create something new for my classroom and that they would have to come back to find out what I made! I think they will be excited!
