I have my classroom on another page on blogger and I know this craft is a good post for both spots.
In a few weeks it will be coat weather and due to schedule changes, my younger classes will be coming right to ART after recess. To keep coats and scarves from becoming a jumbled pile, I thought up a coat rack to hang outside my classroom.
Using the big box of spare spools, some yarn leftovers, and 2 previously painted and distressed-naturally 2x4s from my wood pile at home, I made this quick coat rack.
Paint is Glidden Olive Oil (thank you free quart giveaway. I knew free paint would always come in handy for an artist!)
3" drywall screws held the spools in place and a few more secured it to the wall. Hot glue attached the yarn to each spool.
I think I'll go down the row with the hot glue gun and my button box to cap the screws in the center too.
