Love this upcycling!

The kids have done a great job on their weavings this week! I was so lucky to get materials from the Zero Landfill project in Nashville last spring, and we have been using some of it to make Native American style weavings! The students used some of the faux leather and wallpaper samples to make these awesome pieces:
Once again, a big shout out to ZeroLandfill Nashville. We are putting the materials to good use, and creating some awesome stuff!

We then added a popsicle stick so they could hold them up.

Pretty Little Piggies

The kids finished these up this week and I just had to share. Aren't they adorable? We started with a step by step drawing on pink cons...
