So, yesterday you got to see what the kids helped me make for the auction at Cohen’s elementary school. Today, I’m going to share a couple other projects that are super easy but really make a big difference in they way the baskets look.
We made a kids art crate. For this project, I got a crate from Michaels (normally about $14, but I used my 40% off coupon and got it for cheap!). I spray painted it blue and spray painted a wooden plaque with chalkboard paint. I attached the two with some super strong E6000 glue.
After I finished painting the crate, I cut out a cute saying on my silhouette machine using contact paper. I attached it to the chalkboard, and traced the letters. I removed the stencil/contact paper, and used chalk to fill in the words.
So here’s a picture of the crate, filled with our art supplies.
I also made a cute art smock/apron to go with the basket.
Here’s the entire basket!
This school auction thing was lots of fun! I'm ready for next year!!
