Smurfs - Desk Nameplate

Sunday, September 1, 2013
Well helloooo there....

Some of you have already gone back to school with your kiddos and some of you will start this week.  Either way, I wish you ALL a wonderful and a successful fun school year!  

If you have read my post from August 9th, you would have learned that I love, love, LOVE the Smurfs.  I grew up with these cute little blue guys.  (shhhh......this little news might just have slightly given my age away.)   If you're also following me on Instagram, you know that I also saw the movie Smurfs 2.  What a great movie!!!!   I definitely recommend it!

I have taken my Smurf obsession a step further and brought it into my classroom.

Today, I thought I share with you something that I created and designed.....a Smurf desk nameplate.  You can easily change this up and replace it with one of your own favorite characters.

I used these four wooden planks from Michael's and hot glued them one on top of the other.  This will act as my base.
Sorry, I don't have a picture of the base. 

Next, I used these four wooden rulers from Staples.

I hot glued these rulers onto the base.  Two rulers on top of the base and one on either sides of the base.

Next up are these foam stickers and wooden trees from Michael's.
Using the foam letter stickers, I spelled out my name on the trees.  

The next step includes my little blue friends.

Hot glue the wooden trees along with the little blue people along the "ruler base".

Here's a picture of all my little friends hot glued onto the base.

Next, I used these Crayola crayons for an extra touch of color and to act as the Smurfs' fence along the back.  

The crayons along the back. 

I added my grade level and some butterflies.

Here's the finished product!!!!

I am so happy with the end result!  Isn't it just adorable?  I can't wait for my students to see this on Tuesday morning.

Do you have a nameplate on your desk?

"Remember to Laugh!"
