Monday Made It

I finally have some things to show on Tara's Monday Made It!  I am back at work, but I wanted to be sure to get some of my DIY projects up on my blog!  Be sure to link up.  I am always amazed by some of the awesome ideas that teachers post.

My first Monday made it is painted Mason jars.  Since the jars are glass and have a tendency to chip paint easily I primed them first.  This added a little extra time to the process, but was worth it.  By priming glass before you paint it, it will seal the color on better.  

Before I glued the ribbon I did give each jar a quick spray of clear sealant.  I knew these were going in my classroom and  I didn't want paint chipping off when little hands touched.

I put flowers in a few of the jars and placed sporadically around the room.  I also used one of the jars on my desk to hold pen/pencils.

Right before I started back to work, I was busy making labels for my classroom.  This year I changed my classroom theme, so I am relabeling everything.  I like to have things labeled in a classroom not only for organization purposes, but for reading print for the children as well.  All of these tags are from my Teal, Gray, and Black Editable Classroom Decor Collection!  Do you follow me on TpT?  If not be sure to follow my store to catch all my freebies and new products.  I have several editable classroom sets.

Ok, so maybe this is a little over the top for some, but I can't help it!  I must confess I love anything that has monogramming.  I also think I have spread my obsession to my daughters:)!  My daughter asked to me monogram her pencil pouch and binder with vinyl {of course I was happy to oblige}.  It turned out so cute!  Then when my youngest saw it, she wanted some of her supplies monogrammed too!  I think it turned out pretty darn cute if I do say so myself! Before you remind me, yes, I know names begin with a capital letter.  But I just like how the lowercase letters look when blown up to a large size.  The font I used is KG Shake It off Chunky.  What did we do before Silhouettes and Cricuts?  I have a Silhouette and love it!  Do you use a Silhouette?

Be sure to join in on the fun and share your Monday Made It projects.  Have a great week and thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.



  1. I've been really tempted to purchase a Silhouette lately after seeing all these cute projects in the blog world!

  3. Those jars are adorable! What a sweet idea! And the monogrammed pencil cases are the cutest things ever! I have decided I must get a silhouette machine! I've seen so many people do amazing things with them!

  4. I have an OOOOOOLD cricut. It has no special features. I am so jealous of the new silhouette where you can print and then cut. Is that a feature of your machine?

    I love your colors-- those jars are especially pretty.

    1. Yes, there are some ink cartridges you can put in place of the cutter to print instead. I haven't tried those out yet. I will have to check those out. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Those painted mason jars with ribbon are absolutely adorable. I'm going to have to make some of those myself! Thanks for sharing :)


  6. I LOVE those blue jars with the cute grey ribbon!
    Your color scheme is super cute, and mellow/relaxing at the same time!
    Have a great school year!
