I posted a quick video on Periscope & had a TON of requests to blog about it. I did post the original video from Periscope on my YOUTUBE channel.....yes, I've had a YOUTUBE channel...I just never told anyone about it!
Anywho, I will be uploading all my Periscope videos on my YOUTUBE channel since they only stay up for 24 hours. We are all going to get super busy very quick so I promise, I will try to keep up with these videos.
Back to what I actually made...........
I originally saw this pin on Pinterest of course. If you are the source or find the link, PLEASE let me know. I could NOT find it for the life of me :o(
I fell in LOVE with this idea & have been thinking about how I wanted to create it in my 1st grade classroom.
Raise your hand if you say this all day long? Um, yes...I do too!
I rarely ever write on any of my white boards. I placed the letters right in front of my class (
I had already purchased hot pink spray paint and black and white striped scrapbook paper. I had a vision you see. Well, as I was walking through Joann Fabrics, I stopped in my tracks when I saw these chalkboard letters. Say what??? They come colored already???? So I was in a dilemma my friends. The store was closing in 20 minutes and I needed to make a decision and fast. I made sure to put all the letters I needed in my cart..you know just in case someone else was in the store trying to spell out "focus". I wasn't completely sure on the chalkboard letters because they needed something else. They just seemed BLAH and I didn't have that Mel D style added....at all.
Then....I saw the wide black and white striped striped washi-tape waving it's arms at me & I ran over! This is IT! I was completely inspired!
You can grab this Heidi Swapp tape at Michael's or Joann Fabrics. If you follow me on IG, then you know I am completely obsessed with black and white stripes & gold and I just HAD to find a way to see this every day in my classroom.
I posted this image above on IG.....you should follow me there if you don't already. I am always redecorating something!
Above I am showing the back of the letter...obviously. Well...I hope it's obvious. Anyway, the tape wrapped around the back of the letter in order to get this look. I made slits along the black and white stripes for tricky corners just so they looked as smooth as possible. I used the above Scotch tape to adhere them to my wall.
Here is my COMPLETELY UNEDITED video from Periscope. I am not ready nor have the time to get into video editing so please don't give me a thumbs down. Follow me for video notifications though just so I have more than 20 followers...K?
