July Crafts

I can't believe I haven't been to school at all this summer!!! I am just too happy spending time with my own kids, and lovin being home with our new puppy.  I should be busy making things for my classroom, but instead I am focusing on my house, and kids!!! 
Here are a couple of projects that have kept me busy the past 2 weeks.

Project #1 a colorful Fourth of July Wreath.  This was made from three old T-Shirts, a wire hanger, and one piece of ribbon.  I cut the t-shirt into 6 inch strips, stretched them, and tied them all around the wire hanger.  A free project that took about 1 1/2 hours.
My 3 old t-Shirts, cut into strips, and stretched.

The bent hanger, with t-shirt scraps tied all around.

Project #2 Cute Headbands.  I used more old t-shirts for this project.  I took three pieces and braided them.  A little hot glue, and an elastic band to add to the back for a little more stretch.  My daughter loves her neon colors, we had to make a patriotic one too!
