Last year after I finished Carson's mermaid room. I guess I should say Carson and Clara's mermaid room (I planned on them sharing a room, but that lasted one day!). I started working on the play room (which is now Clara's room). I added a chalkboard/magnetic wall (great tutorial here) and an art clothesline. The clothesline is super easy, inexpensive(I think I spent59 cents on each wooden piece)and you only need a few materials.
Materials: wooden animals/objects/letters (I got ours from JoAnn, but Michaels has them too), glue gun, string, clothespins, wine corks (one cork will give you two/three pieces so depending on how many fixtures you want will depend on the number of corks you need) and a pencil
First, mark on your wall where you want to glue on your wine corks.
Next, cut the wine corks in halves/thirds (it depends how far you want them to stick out from the wall).
Glue them onto the wall (If you are a teacher your probably have done this with posters and such in your classroom). In my experience, the glue will peel off the wall fairly easy.
Get your string ready. I just left mine on the roll to allow me to adjust as I saw fit and cut it at the end. Put a dab of hot glue onto the cork and wrap the string around several times (you might want to add a little more glue as you wrap). Do the same thing to the next cork and so on. Cut your string at
Your children will be so excited they have a place of their own to show off their favorite creations!
