What a Great Line-Up Bulletin Board Idea

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!
