Creating Better Lives, Brighter Futures & Stronger Families

Showcasing Your Student’s Work (It’s Not Just For Refrigerators Anymore!)

Here is an idea that I used in my classroom.  I was looking for a cheap and efficient way to celebrate my students’ achievements by showcasing their work.  It cost me about $10.00 to $20.00 in materials and about an hour of my time.  Turns out it is a great and simple idea for any  parent, teacher, or homeschooling family looking for a way to show off their students’ work!

Here is a picture of the finished wall!

 

To achieve the Masterpieces Wall, you will need: 

  1. Wooden clothes pins (1 pack of 24)
  2. Duct tape (various decorative colors)
  3. Self Stick Velcro (6 feet should do)
  4. Push pins (one pack)
  5. Decorative lettering

First you have to prepare the clothespins. I tore my duct tape into strips and used it to cover the top surface of the pin.  I then cut the Velcro in half, adhering one side to the clothespin and leaving the other adhesive side covered till I was ready to mount them to the wall.

Once the pins are covered and Velcro attached, measure out a grid on your wall and stick the pins (clip side down) to the wall.  Center your wording above the display and attach them with pushpins (I find the clear colored pushpins are easiest to use and quick to remove if you make an error, and virtually invisible when you put them on the wall).  Finally, attach the work and step back and enjoy!
