I am always looking for an excuse to use fabric on something!
I love, love, love Jo-Ann fabric! I am coming from a classroom that had SIX bulletin boards to a classroom that only has ONE bulletin board. I am still trying to find a solution to this predicament.
Hence my project---
I need a board for my spelling words/word work! I saw these ADORABLE scrabble letters at Jo-Ann.
These are not your typical Scrabble letters, these are HUGE, like two or three inches. My kids will go gah-gah over them!
Y'all to make this board I used two tools:
2. My trusty Hot Glue Gun
My Jo-Ann Materials:
- 1 yard of Fabric
-Bin of Scrabble Letters
- 2 Sheets of Cardstock
*I am sure there are MUCH more professional ways to do this, but I like simple. easy, and effective.
*First I cut and hot-glued my gray fabric to the board.
*I then used my black ribbon to cover up all the rough edges and add a border.
*I would love to tell you that I used a snazzy paper cutter to cut perfect triangles, but really I just eyeballed them.
*I added the chipboard letters and stuck them on the teal triangles.
*Last but not least I glued the triangles on to look like a banner.
I also threw together this cute little recording sheet for when my students use this interactive board/center.
