Monday Made It

I am linking up to my first official Monday Made It! I have read and viewed tons of these but this is my first time posting. Yeah! If you want to link up go to 4th Grade Frolics HERE.

I have a love of chevron and want to incorporate it in my classroom this year. I have these bins that I currently use at my student supply tables and I needed to make them cuter.

Here is the before. 

The top bin is the one I'm redoing. The bottom left bin will be changed to another bin that I just purchased and the thin clear bin will get a new label. 

So here is the after bin. 
I think it will look cute next to my supply bins. 

I am going to make bins for each table group color to match my bins. Here are three completed bins. 

My theme this year is changing to lizards/chameleons so I have been working on new bin labels. My theme last year was owls. Here is a look at last year's table group bins. 

The ribbon can be purchased at Hobby Lobby. The bins I have purchased in the past from Walmart and Big Lots. There was plenty of ribbon left after the one bin. There would probably be enough to do three baskets. 

Step 1: Push one end of the ribbon through one of the middle holes on the second row of holes. 

Step 2: Wrap the ribbon around the edges and then tie the two ends together.
Step 3: Create a bow and attach to the center of the container.

That's it. Quick and easy! I love the colors and I can't wait to finish the other colors. The rest of my bins are unfortunately at school so I'll have to wait.
