This is a close-up of the fireplace. I used the mantle that was included in Lifeway’s 1st/2nd Grade Bible Study Pack. The “stone” is made from grey paper that I cut into rounded rectangles and squares. To get the textured look, I crumpled up the paper and then flattened them out. I glued them on a square sheet of black kraft paper. The “wood” is made with brown construction paper, I used a black marker to add detail to the wood.
This is the bulletin board I made to display our class schedule. The background is red handkerchief scrapbook paper that I found at Hobby Lobby. I used blue handkerchief paper to make the corners. I added some real cowboy hats and a few extra touches.
This is a tumbleweed I made to go along with the Tumbleweed song(our favorite). I used a punch balloon, twine and glue, lots and lots of glue! When the glue dries, you pop the balloon and you have a great looking tumbleweed!
Here are some of the other things in my room…
