Crafty Teacher Giveaway Stop #7

Welcome to stop #7 on the Crafty Teacher Giveaway!  I have a confession to make.  I love making things, but I wish I was a bit more skilled in the art department.  Alas, here are my attempts at craftiness.  

Could do this for the home or the classroom. Words to live by or classroom beliefsI got my original idea from this Pinterest pin and decided to use the idea for classroom decor.  I think this crafter used various scrapbook papers and adhesive letters.

I didn't have as much time to dedicate to it. I expect you'll be the same.  I needed something I could print and use, so I designed the classroom rules with Powerpoint and set the page size to fit legal sized paper. Once printed, I just cut them out, gathered my supplies, and moved on to step #2

In step #2, I adhered the rules to a canvas board I purchased from Michael's.  I used a 16 x 20 sized canvas, but you may change the size to your needs.  To adhere the rules, I used Mod Podge and painted it on like you would sizing for wallpaper.

Once all of the rules were in place, step # 3 is to add the border.  I chose to use the new fabric duct tape in a pattern to coordinate with the backgrounds I chose. You might also paint the border or use markers to add your own borders.

Finally, take your project to a well ventilated area and spray with lacquer. You can also use Mod Podge again to cover the top.  It is personal choice.

Once the project dries, you can hot glue embellishments such as buttons or bows to go with other classroom decor. I added on flower patches (Monday) which I think added a nice touch. I also saw premade bows, wooden figures (flowers, ladybugs, sports balls) that could be hot glued on.  You might also paint a border on.  The winner will choose one of the two items above and receive a $10 TPT gift card.

If you are interested in making this project, you can print your own rule set. Just click [here] or win one that's already done!  Just enter the Rafflecopter below.

Now, hop on over to visit Pam at S.O.L. Train Learning, a fellow Virginia blogger!  She's got a great project to share too.
Happy hopping!
