A Little DIY FUN!

  Well hello world! Sooo its been a while, but I was on vaca so it was kinda okay! Haha!

  Since getting back it has been very busy around the Yellow Castel, we had to prep to go to a very special little man’s 1st birthday party, start on some home diy, and a little school savings diy {which is why we are here!}

  So teachers are always looking for ways to save money, well I have a great way to help bring a pop of color to your classroom (or home) and not break the bank by spending 300 dollars!!!!! {ExCiTiNg RiGhT??!!??}

  If you want to put a fun run in a part of your classroom, BUT you don’t want to spend the hundreds of dollars this idea might work out for you!!

  {Let me set the stage} I got a great homework/craft table for my little boo boos, but the hubs can’t stand for the play-doh to get stuck in the wood floors (doesn’t bother me at all).  So I was thinking what I could put down that looked great, wasn’t a plastic shower curtain, and that I wouldn’t have to spend a ton on. 


Isn't it FUN!!

  I happen to have some spare fabric left over from other diy projects {truly just scraps}.  AND I had a large piece of left over yellow felt from some lemon costumes.  

  I pulled out my handy dandy glue gun and got to work!  I laid out all the different fabrics I had and pieced them together.  Once they were laid out how I liked, I glued the edges, and BOOOM!!! Simple, easy, affordable, and adorable!!!

  This is going to work best for an area that needs a little pop of color, a place to define where there is not going to be a TON of foot traffic.  I am making another one for my library area to coordinate with my reading stools. 

{break down - ideas - hints}
  You can get any amount of fabric that you want to work with.  The felt comes off a bolt that is very wide -some can be 96 inches- and you can get fabric for very cheap from various stores.

  I have been thinking these would look so great to use to help define an area within the classroom (under rocker in the front of the room).

  The felt helps to give it a little cushion for the tush! You might even be able to double it up and give your tush a double cushion! Hee hee!

  Love, Hugs, and Wiggles!!!


P.S. If you do try this let me know how it goes and where you are going to be using it!!
