Monday Made it.... FINALLY!!!

FINALLY - I've made something that I can link up with!!  haha

I call these Bulletin Board Dots!

I visited the fabulous JoAnn's and purchased 5 different pieces of pre-cut fabric quarters.  They were $1.99 each, but with my teacher discount I got $1.49 off, so one ended up being only 50 cents!    So for about $8.00 I was able to make lots of bulletin board dots.

Materials:
Cardboard boxes (free)
Round containers
pen for tracing containers
scissors
fabric and hot glue gun

Cut out any size of cardboard circles you like.  Cover with pieces of fabric using hot glue gun.

Here are five of my largest circles.

A variety of fabric circles completed.

Hang the Bulletin Board Dots on the wall.  Use a pushpin to attach whatever you want.

Bright and colorful and OH.SO.EASY!

That's My Kind of Teaching!

  5. Hmmm this is a great idea! Question, how are you hanging the bulletin board dots on the wall? We have no bulletin boards and aren't allowed to put any holes in the wall or use glue...

    1. Jessica,
      I used hot glue. Could you use velcro, glue dots, or the 3M hangers that don't stick to the wall when you remove? (I LOVE those things!)

  11. Such bright colors and what a cool idea! Those would be very useful around my house when I'm trying to find space on my corkboard! They'd also be a great addition to my reading area at school... maybe have kids pin up some good books.

    You've got my wheels turning ;) I'm always inspired by everyone's Made Its!

    Thanks for sharing,
