Setting up our classroom and decorating was so much fun! Getting to set up and decorate a classroom with a friend, and having someone to help with everything was so much fun! The ideas just kept coming! One of the ideas we had, was to create a hanging classroom centerpiece or focal point.
We got quite a few packs of pom-poms from Hobby Lobby, and got to fluffing them up!
And then, it hit me - a hula hoop! Duh! So, we tied on some pom-poms close enough that they're just touching.
How could I not "wear" this? So fun!
Next, we need to do some "filling in" - it's got to make a statement, after all :) To attach to the middle section, we used fishing line to make a "t" or "x" (depending on how you look at it) in the middle of the hula hoop.
Stephanie (my teaching partner) was definitely the mastermind of actually getting this thing hung from the ceiling! Fishing line worked perfectly!
A total of 24 or so pom-poms, and this is the result! I absolutely loved it when I first saw it, and I love it still!
