Anchors Away!

I know it is only April.
I know there are still 59 days until the last day of school.
But, I have already chosen a theme for my classroom for the '14-'15 school year!

  I am going nautical next year!  I love everything nautical; home decor, fashion, etc.  This is the perfect theme for me.  So, being the eager beaver that I am I have started collecting ideas on Pinterest, and, I have started shopping for and making crafts!  I recently found out that a Hobby Lobby opened up near me!  I know these are fairly common down South but there are hardly any in the North East.  My daughter and I were on spring vacation this week so we went on an adventure to find said Hobby Lobby.  You guys, I fell in L.O.V.E. with the store.  We were there, in our glory, going up and down every. single. aisle.  I don't even know how long we were there!  We grabbed a couple million things and headed home.

  I had two crafts in mind when I went in there so, I grabbed the materials I needed there.  This is the inspiration for my first craft:

This is a wreath sold on Etsy.  I am doing a navy and lime green nautical theme, so, I bought a foam floral wreath form (couldn't find it on the site, similar), navy craft cord, white craft cord and lime green ribbon.  I started working on this the other night.  I wrapped the foam with the cord and then realized that my glue gun is at school!  That's okay!  I still need to get the natural cord and a wooden anchor.  Here is what it looks like currently with ribbon in one spot just so you get the idea:
I can't wait until I can finish it!  It is going to look great.  I think I spent $13 total on this project so far.  The cute wreath above sells for around $50 I believe!

Ok, next project I just created on my own.  I wanted a cute nautical monogram.  So, I picked up a wooden letter "S", navy acrylic paint, white acrylic paint, brushes and navy ribbon.  I painted it today and it looks like this:

I am just going to hang it on ribbon and that is it!

So, there you have it ladies and theme for next year.  Have you started planning anything for next year?
