Happy 4th, friends!!  Here in SE KS, we have been watching the rain come down for about two days now.  We definitely have some happy farmers!  I'm in between masters classes, soooo I decided to get my craft on and join in on Monday Made It, my fave summer linky!

Last year I did a blog post on chalk painting mason jars.  This year I decided to add some burlap!  
Here's the supply list:
burlap ribbon (wired)
chalk paint (Waverly from Wal-Mart)
mason jars
paint brushes
hot glue gun
twine (extra)

The first step is to paint mason jars!  You can clean them with alcohol first if you want.  My yellow took two coats but the teal only took one.  Next, you can take a strip of burlap and hot glue it around the jar.  I did this to one and the other one I drew a ruler using a black sharpie.  You could even draw an initial or ABCs.  

On my teal jar, I created some burlap rosettes.  It's soooo easy! I added a dot of hot glue every so often.  Here's the steps below:

 My yellow jar will store my extra rulers and my teal jar will store my newest student tools, Super Sticks!  All you need is wooden skewers, ribbon, and washi tape.  Here's how I made them:

Make sure you trim off the pointy ends!  You can use these to call on students, as pointers for students/you, or for certain games.

That was one big Monday Made It!  You can check out my Bright & Burlap Class Decor HERE!  Have a great week!
