Nieces Weekend & A Washi Tape Craft

Whelp, it's another Monday and my life is about to get C-R-A-Z-Y!  But it's the kind of crazy I like!  My classroom is clean and I get to go in and start setting it up today! 

It's been a long but fun weekend!  I kept my nieces while my brother and sister-in-love went to a conference in Florida!  We had a fun-filled weekend that started off with the children's museum.
And of course we made cookies before bed because that's what Aunt Rachel does!
Playtime at the mall!
On rained most of the day so we had a relaxing day indoors!  We had a great time...I just love being an Aunt!!

And now for my Monday Made-It. Which is probably why most of you are here...hehe!
Be sure to check out the other projects over at Tara's blog 4th Grade Frolics

I made the infamous READ letters for my classroom library!
These are cardboard letters that I picked up from the Hob Lob.
I spray painted the letters black and then covered the front with Washi tape
(this was my first time using washi tape...and I.Am.In.Love!)
 It finished it of with a coat of Modge Podge to make sure it would last.

Y'all have a great day!!

  8. Oh I've been wanting to do this too... yours look great!

  9. Love your READ letters! Initially I set out to do something like this, but I ended up making more of a READ shadowbox frame type situation for my Monday made it! I am also obsessed with washi tape and am constantly looking for new ways to use it!

    First Grade Frenzy!

  10. I love the letters! They turned out really cute. I just used Washi tape for the first time too. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Yours is really cute! Love the design.

  11. You've inspired me! I have a tall bookcase in my guided reading area and these letter would be the perfect match on the top of it!
