Wreath, Angels and Bells...Oh, my!

Finished wreath hanging on my school shelves.  Well, it even makes the storage shelves pretty.  Now it adorns the door in the main office. 

Cardboard tubes for wreath
Spray painted red with a touch of diamond dust...all we need is a bow now.

        My room at school is overloaded with fun projects my students are working on and it is like the kids are on bungee cords.  They keep coming back to my class when they are supposed to be in other classes. 

One magazine folded and attached to a hand painted mat board. 
They must be having fun. 

Here are some of the fun things happening in my classroom.  (All photos are student projects.)

More photos as projects are finished.

  2. Hi Darla,
    thank to you e-mail about the words-bloghop, I found you blog and I like it, so I´m now following you.
    I really like the what you do to the old books, looks beautiful!

    1. Thanks, for joining us. My students loved the old book/magazine projects and we have had to request more. It was great thinning my old magazine bin. While digging for magazines one student found one from 1943. I quickly pulled it from the pile of old magazines that were more typically ten years old and saved it.
      Glad you joined my blog. I hope to be more diligent about posting fun projects.

  3. Wow I love every one of those ideas. Happy New Year. I think I already follow you
