Monday Made It-Clips and a FREEBIE


This past week I had many projects that were "in the works". I had ideas. I had started making some of my ideas. And I had NOT completed many of my ideas. However, I did get one complete. It's these cute little guys.

I started off with plain wooden clothespins. My dad helped me spray paint some of them black and some of them white. Then I took a paint pen and added dots to them. 

I wanted to make them cuter. So I used some scrap booking paper I had and cut out a flower pattern. Then I glued them to the top of the clothespin. I am going to add a magnet strip to the back so they can be used on the whiteboard or file cabinets in my room.

I am also going to use these clothespins for my classroom behavior clip chart and to display anonymous work. Instead of the flowers, I made blue polka dot circles with numbers in the center. Each student will have their own number in class. This will allow me to use the clips year after year without making new ones because their names were on it. 

If you like this idea for your classroom, just click on the picture above to grab your FREEBIE copy to download. I have included the numbers 1-36 to accommodate all class sizes. Enjoy!

Also, for today only I am having a sale at my TN and TpT stores in celebration of my birthday. Everything is 20% off today only! Enjoy shopping everyone!
