Monday Made It {Board Display & Pom Poms}

Monday is one of my favorites days in the summer because of Tara's Monday Made It series!  It keeps me motivated to do something for my classroom each week!
The first thing I worked on is a new board display for our goals and homework.  My board display right now is backed with yellow paper, which doesn't match my colors at all.  Here is my new board display:
This is how it will look when I put it on the board.
My second Monday Made It is more pom poms/paper flowers to hang in my classroom.  Last year I made blue and green ones, but I felt like I needed more than what I had.  Since I am adding pink this year, this was a great time to make more.  I usually hang them in sets of two, so this will make 4 sets to hang!


Last year I created a tutorial to make these pom poms/paper flowers (whatever you want to call them!).  If you are interested in making these, you can click HERE to find that tutorial!

  1. Thanks for the flower tutorial. Do you hang them from the ceiling? We aren't allowed to. I'm trying to think of something else I can do with them.

    1. Maybe you could tie them on a string (fishing line?) and drape them across the top of a wall or the front of your desk in a sort of flower bunting!

      Lana, I love your board display. The two columns are a perfect way to keep things simple and I can't believe I haven't thought of it myself! Definitely stealing that idea :)

  3. The pom poms are sooo cute. I like that they are an inexpensive way to decorate the room. I remember making these when I was a kid, but I may have to check out your tutorial to be reminded. ;)

  5. Love the pom poms! I did some paper crafting for decorations for my room last year and loved how comfortable it made my room feel all year. I used butcher paper to create jungle trees for my "wild about learning" theme.

  6. I love your pom poms as well. I tried to make these a while back but it was a giant FAIL! lol They turned out way to big, I think the paper I used was too large to start with.
    Maybe I'll try them again.

  8. Those pom poms also make great truffola trees when added to the top of a grey pipe insulator striped with yellow duct tape. They are so colorful I bet they really brighten up your room!
