In my search for a great start of the year bulletin board, I came across the idea of placing paper t-shirts on a clothesline with the saying above it of, "what a great line-up!" I loved the idea. I thought it was cute and I thought the kids would get a kick out of coloring their t-shirts!
I'll apoligize in advance for the bit of bluriness-I only had my cellphone on me. I'll post another picture once the kids have colored their shirts.
I prepared my bulletin board first by adding the backsplash and border. I then added the "clothesline", which was silver cord I had in the closet. I attached it to the board simply by stapling it about three times on each side. The t-shirts I made from manilla tag and placed each student's name on the t-shirt. The clothespins I had picked up from Wal-Mart a while back, which cost me only $2. I colored each of the flat sides of the clothespins with a red Sharpie (gotta love a Sharpie). I then hung each shirt, with a clothespin on each shoulder. I did two lines, with names being in alphabetical order. I'm really happy with it, other than a concern about the title not standing out enough. I may need to use some different letters to make it stand out better. Total cost for this project? $2. I think this is officially the cheapest board I've ever done!
