Back to School Classroom Hall Pass Sign

5:30:00 AM

It is a back to school project for a new teacher.

I received a project request today from not just any new teacher but a new teacher that I had in my preschool class when she was four. 

When she asked if I could make her a similar hall pass sign to one she had seen on Pinterest I was more than happy to!

I started out by attaching 2 boards I had in my workshop and staining them with Rust-Oleum wood stain

When the stain dried I attached wooden clothespins with wood glue and held them in place with clamps until the glue dried.

I cut vinyl stencils for the lettering using my Silhouette vinyl cutting machine then stenciled the words to the board with white craft paint. 

In retrospect it would have been much easier to stencil first and glue the clothespins on second... duh as they say.

While the paint dried I cut large paint stirrers into 5" hall passes and stained each one. On one side I painted the passes with black chalkboard paint and drilled a hole for jute string.

Next I stenciled a necessary hall pass word on each one.

I added two D rings on the back for hanging and this little project is ready for a new teacher's new classroom.
