Do you hate pin holes all over your cutesy bulletin boards? I know I do! I love to frequently change out student work...but hate the holes in bulletin boards. Last year, I found the perfect solution to this problem. I glued a tack to the back of a clothespin and hung the student work with the clothespin. Time to change up the student work...no problem...no holes.
I'm changing up the colors and theme in my room this year, which means I need new clothespin tacks. I started by getting some small wooden cut-outs from Michael's. They had tons of different cut-outs to choose from. Don't forget to use your teacher discount:). I spray painted them with chalkboard paint.
I waited for it all to dry. After it was all dry, I painted the white polka dots on the black cut-outs with a white paint pen (also purchased at Michael's). I hot glued the black wooden pieces to the front of the clothespin and a tack to the back.
