Monday Made It!

I am SO excited to finally be able to participate in Tara's Monday Made It!

I have been contemplating my classroom decor (as you all know) since school got out.
I decided on basic primary colors (just using an assortment of bright colors)!
I searched high and low for a new ABC banner for above my board and had no luck finding one.
So, what did I do? I made my own!
(Click on the image for a larger picture!)
My classroom floor is getting waxed, so you have to just imagine how 
it will look in a classroom rather then my old fence! haha!

(Close up!)

I am not crafty AT ALL, so I am very please with the way it turned out.
It also didn't cost me any more then it would have cost me if I would have purchased a pre-made banner online or at my local parent/teacher store.

How did I make it?
Tons of cutting, gluing, measuring and tracing, hole punching, and stringing.
I also got it laminated so that it will last longer.

Let me know what you think!
Can't wait to see what all you other crafty people have been up to this week.
Don't forget to go link up with Tara!

I also want to take the time to link up with Miss Nelson @ Run! Miss Nelsons Got The Camera.
She is having a FUN linky that includes a giveaway! Go check it out.
