Monday Made it: A Hodge Podge

Hey friends. I am so jealous of those of you who are Vegas bound! I hope to find the funds next year and fly out there to meet some of ya'll! I cannot wait to see the pics and hear how it goes. 

Not to worry though, I will not be sitting around here...twiddling my thumbs! I am Bahamas bound tomorrow with my sister, Mom, and Aunt! Bring on the tan and girls trip. Whoo hoo! Anyways, wanted to post a few things I managed to make this past week in between packing and gearing up for another vacay. I'm linking up with Tara over at 4th grade Frolics for another wonderful Monday Made it. Here is what I've put together - a hodge podge of stuff:
I just LOVE burlap door hangers! I have a few that I have shelled out a pretty penny for. I ran across a pencil similar to this on etsy and loved it, but not the price. I bought some burlap, googled a tutorial, and began working! Here is my finished product! It will look great on my classroom door! 
I also made Christie's "Good Listener" poster set. It looks awesome in my newly painted room and the zebra ribbon pulls everything together. You can find this freebie at her {TpT store}.
I finished this board the other day, too. This originally housed my word wall but I took my letters off and glued them to my wall versus taking up a bulletin board. Last year, I had my clothespin rope draped across my room. While it was super cute, any time I had anything heavy on it...it would weight the rope and I would have to duck every.time.I.went.under.it (which was a LOT). So, I moved it to a board and am going to hang student work here. This saves me from ducking and from changing out my board all the time for different seasons. I can simply swap out the work and Viola - new bulletin board, instant change!

What are YOU making today? Link up!
P.S. Sorry for the poor pics, I snagged them with my phone. BUT - you get the hint! Happy crafting!
