Teacher Door Decorations


Somehow I was talked into decorating
4 Doors for Teacher Appreciation Week!
(Susie you are very persuasive *wink*)
But, just because I may be a little crafty
doesn't mean I have a non stop supply
of crafty ideas, especially when it comes
to clever ways to do up a door.
I also thought it would be so easy
to just google and get ideas to do....
but I found there weren't very many ideas out there.
I was so frustrated and wasted so much time just
trying to come up with something
that by the time I got to doing the doors
I wasn't feeling too crafty.

I quickly found out that glue sticks and construction paper
aren't really good together.
That you should always plan for a door to have a handle.
That even if things look straight laid out on the ground
while you are gluing them on, they will look really
crooked when they are hung up.
Oh, and yes, a "g" looks backwards too
when you are gluing it on at midnight.

So, I thought it would be fun to share some of the fun doors
that were done at our school!
Here's a few that were already up when I went
to hang up mine.
Didn't they turn out great!!!
This is the one I did for my daughter's teacher.
They have been reading Charlotte's Web
and I just couldn't resist!
I cannot begin to explain the appreciation
I have for this good teacher of hers.
I have been able to volunteer a lot this year
and I have loved every minute!
What a debt we owe to our teachers!
So thank you Mrs. Burris!
You are indeed "Some Teacher"!

We hope you all had a wonderful Easter Holiday!
We had a fun potluck family dinner
and I made chocolate dipped strawberries
for the first time.
I was amazed at how quickly they disappeared!
It was great and we came home stuffed and content.
Is there any better feeling?:)

I did Charlotte's web last year (I can't believe i didn't blog it...grrr) and had the kids all color a wilber for the bottom and used glitter for the web. Yours turned out very cute.:) Thanks for posting so many doors as I am looking again for ideas for this year.
