Today, my friend Kayla and I did some crafting and made some things for her apartment at school in the Fall!
Kayla bought a four pack of square cork pieces, acrylic paint in the colors she wants in her apartment, and a pack of stencils with all different shapes.
You can paint the cork however you want! You could write quotes, or wrap them in a fabric you like as well.
Kayla chose to paint two of her cork squares white, one blue, and one purple for the first step.
Kayla then used the stencils she got to paint patterns on them!
Here is the ALMOST finished product! (Kayla will make patterns on all of the boards when she has more time!)
She now has cute boards to hang on her wall to tack things like pictures, reminders, etc to!
"This Week"- "Next Week" dry erase calendar!
Kayla got two 11x14 frames in a pack for just $4 at Michael's Craft Store!!! She also picked 8 pieces of scrapbook paper that she liked and will match the theme of her apartment!
We cut each paper into 2 inch strips... 2 of each patterned paper (1 for each frame!)
Kayla then arranged the papers in an order she liked and over lapped the papers to fit right onto the inside of the backing of the frame. We then used Modge Podge to secure the pieces or paper.
After that, you just let them dry and repeat the steps for your second frame.
When they are all dry, you attach the back to the frame and flip it over and you're done.
You just use a dry erase marker on the glass and it wipes off and you can change it each week!
Here is Kayla's finished product for her to stay organized with assignments and schedules in the fall!
Kayla used a coupon I gave her for Michael's to get all her supplies and ended up spending under $20!
The coupon I found is valid from now until July 19th and you can find it HERE to print it out or redeem from your phone.
Happy crafting!Leave Comment »
