Happy First Day of School!

I made a First Day of School picture frame for the kiddos to hold as I take a picture. I attached the big star labeled "1st" with velcro on the back.  By using velcro, I can change out the "1st" star with "100th" or "Last", so I can use it for those important dates.  I am still in the process of making those. Three more days before I meet my first graders! :)

  3. That's too cute! I pinned an idea like this just the other day, and was going to do the same thing! I hope mine turns out as cute as yours is. =) I didn't even THINK about making it interchangeable for 100th and Last Days of school! What a great idea! Thank you so much for sharing!

  13. Your frame is adorable. I'm in the process of finishing mine. I love the switch out star and your giant letters. Where did you get your letters? The ones I found are a little small and hard to read. Can you tell me where to find them?? Thanks!

  16. Thank you all for the wonderful comments!

    I purchased the unfinished wood frame and letters from Hobby Lobby. It was a challenge to get all the wooden letters I needed, requiring me to go to more than one Hobby Lobby. I spray painted everything, which made it easier and used wood glue for the letters and velcro for the star. As for the word school and the star, I used Mod Podge to stick on scrap booking paper after I spray painted it.

    All in a days work!

  26. This is adorable! I love it! Such a great idea. I'm a preschool teacher and am hoping to adapt this. Just wondering if you used wooden letters for the word "of" and the letters "st" in 1st. Love the fonts. Thanks for sharing your idea!
