One day, though, I began thinking about the hallway wall outside my room. That's right - the lovely cinder block walls that we all know and love. I wanted a new way to display my kids' work. I was inspired by my school's art teacher to display students' artwork by stringing ribbon with two 3M hooks, then uses clothespins to hang the work. So simple. So cute.
Here we go...I used black stain on the clothespins then I used white acrylic paint and a pencil. After lots of dipping and dotting, my paperclips turned out exactly the way I had envisioned them. Every time I look at them I smile!! Mission accomplished.
So, although I haven't put much thought into my classroom as of yet, the hallway is taken care of. I can't wait to put these pins to good use.
