I can't believe school is just around the corner! We start back with kiddos Aug. 26th and I have been
having nightmares dreaming about my classroom set up and my new bunch of kidlets for weeks!
I was inspired by Maria's color palette of spray paints so when I found these wooden frames I knew those colors would be perfect! So I'm linking up to show you what I've made so far!
I started with these unfinished wood frames that I found at Michael's for dirt cheap. I purchased multiple styles so I could really play with them while decorating.
After a light coat of primer I slowly painted each one with probably 3-4 coats each. I didn't want the paint too thick but I wanted the colors to look really bold.
And I think they came out perfectly!!
I may have gotten a little spray paint happy buuuut I really wanted to spice up some clothespins with out having to cut out decorative scrap paper and modge podging them so I came up with this idea!
I found a box that we had just received from Amazon (yes, I'm addicted to Amazon) and clipped the clothespins all around each flap. I read somewhere to clip the pins to something so you can flip them back and forth to get each side.... and this idea worked perfectly for that. I could flip them and let them dry without setting them down or holding them up the whole time.
I started with one color flipped the flap inward and painted the outside and flipped it out to do the same until each side was painted. Then I just let them sit in the garage until they were dry. So easy and it didn't require ANY cutting or modge podge! Now when I hang student work their clips will POP!
If you're thinking about doing it, I say go for it!! You will not be disappointed!
