Monday Made It! {Sprucing Up the Homestead}

My summer has finally begun and I am jumping into crafting projects!  I just don't seem to find the time during the school year, and I am ready to take advantage of lazy summer days  (LOL!) and get creative!  I'm linking up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for her Monday Made It linky!

I moved last month and I finally have the time to unpack some boxes and do a little decorating.  I mean, I finally hung a picture up yesterday!  Moving during the school year is NO BUENO!

I looked at my front door area and it was boring!  It really needed a bit of sprucing up!  I shopped for a summer style wreath, but couldn't find anything that I liked.  So what's a crafty girl to do???  Head to the craft store!  

I bought a small grapevine wreath and a garland of some dark and light pink flowers.

Then I got busy with the glue gun!  For the final touch, I added some ribbon from my stash.

And here is the finished wreath!

I picked up a new doormat and a hydrangea and now my front door area looks like this!!  Definitely a change for the better!

As I mentioned earlier, I am trying to get settled into my new home.  As I unpack boxes, I am finding quite a few craft projects that I never finished ... started. 

One of those projects was a letter K that I hoped to decorate and put in the bedroom.  So I got busy again!

Here are the materials:  wooden letter "K", pink craft paint, scrapbook paper, and of course, MOD PODGE!

Here is the completed letter.

And here it is in my bedroom.  Love how it looks!

I finished up my latest TpT product!  It's called Circle Sorts!  It is perfect for working on beginning letter sounds with your students!

Head over to my TpT store to check it out!

  1. Your wreath is so bright and cheerful!! Great job :) Love the circle sorts- that's such a great idea!

  2. The K is fantastic- don't you love mod podge? I have something similar planned for my daughter's new classroom! I recently did a wreath for my door, too! I totally copied a pin- but isn't that Pinterest is for?

    Teachers Are Terrific!

    1. I have used Mod Podge for too many years to count! Love Pinterest!

  3. Your wreath and letter K turned out cute! I did some letters last year and the mod podge wasn't all the way dry when I put them on top of one another. It ripped the scrapbook paper. I need to redo them.
    Rockin' and Lovin' Learnin'

    1. Oh no! Hopefully you will find some time to fix those letters!

  4. Cute wreath! I just made a new one for my front door, too!

    Keep Calm and Hoot On
