Monday Made It: Mod Podge Paint Cans!

First of all, OMG! I almost had a heart attack watching The Bachelorette. I don't know if west coast people watch it later so I won't say anything, but I definitely shed a happy tear today during one of the dates, and before she gave out the last rose, I was feeling very anxious!!! But I'm happy now, all is well, and I can keep watching. :)

Second, I am participating in Monday Made It hosted by Tara at 4th Grade Frolics!
This is a really big deal for me, people. I am a visionary.... I get visions of things I want and that is pretty much where it ends. Haha! So I am really proud of myself for actually following through on a thing I wanted to do!

Here is my finished product!
I was inspired by Natalie's post about her paint cans!

This was my first ever Mod Podge project! I feel like that is crazy talk in the blogging world. I am trying not to care that there are some wrinkles in the paper and that it doesn't look perfect........... :) I'm sure I will get better with more Mod Podge practice!

I am going to use it to hold these bad boys:
They are the little rubbery things that come on Target prescription bottles! My mom had been saving them for me and I had like 4, and then I was able to go through a retiring teacher's stash over the weekend and she had TONS! I am going to use them as counters.

Last, over the weekend I picked up The Phonics Dance book!
I actually have an older version... it is well-loved. :)

I spent the afternoon lining up the hunks and chunks in The Phonics Dance with the order that I teach them in my reading program. I think this will make a HUGE difference for my students this year and I can't wait to do it!


  1. I've never heard of The Phonics Dance book. It sounds intriguing. (I haven't watched The Bachelorette yet. I hope Ryan is gone!)

  2. Oh my gosh, I'm SO with you on the Bachelorette! I was SO scared at the rose ceremony, but also so happy to see a certain someone go home :)
    I also loved your idea for counters!

  7. Oh, they look great! Don't worry, just ignore the wrinkles...mine have them, too! But that's what makes them fun! Or atleast...that's what I'm telling myself :)

    I finally watched The Bachelorette tonight, and I *knew* it was him! Such a twerp, saw right thru him from the get go!
