Get Creative! {Haley from The McGrew Crew}

I'm so excited to be sharing how I'm getting creative in our classroom! Most typical classrooms have bulletin boards or other special areas in which to display the work of students. We are a homeschooling family. While the walls in most homes are covered in family photos, fun wall art and other decor, ours is covered in school work! I want my children to be proud of their hard work and they love putting almost EVERY paper they complete up on the wall. However, I desired a more creative and organized way to display work. Enter Pinterest! ;~) 

Of course Pinterest came to the rescue! I found several ideas but the one that stood out to me the most was something like this: Click on the picture to go to the original site!
So I got to work! We purchased some inexpensive wood slats from home depot. Thankfully, I happened to have all the other items needed at home: clothes pins (who doesn't have those laying around?), spray paint, acrylic paint and wood glue! 

I happened to have these little wooden stars that I decided to paint red and white and go with a patriotic theme! I just used a q-tip to make the white dots on the stars. You could add velcro or magnets to the tops of the clothes pin and change out a decorative addition or you could even add names to each pin!

 This would be a great, creative way to display work at home or in the classroom!

Our finished product!
