As you may or may not know, I switched schools this year. I transferred from a traditional junior high school to an alternative school (also called an outreach school). It has been quite a learning curve but I am so happy that I made the change and love my new job! One thing I’m finding hard to adjust to is not having my own classroom. Instead, I have a desk in the office and then I move between the junior high room, senior high room, and supported learning room.
To try and prettify my desk and make it feel more like mine, I decided to make some super easy button thumbtacks. I accidentally erased the photos of the process (I’m still not used to my Mac) but I can explain it to you.
Knife (or something to rough up the thumbtack)
Book (or something heavy and flat)
Step 1: Rough up the head of a thumbtack. I used a butter knife. I just wanted a little bit of rough surface so the glue would stick.
Step 2: Place a drop of glue (I used Gorilla Glue) on the thumbtack, then press it onto the back of the button. Be careful not to use too much or it seeps through the holes.
Step 3: Lay something heavy on top of the thumbtacks to apply pressure while they dry. I used a book.
Step 4: Put them in your bulletin board and enjoy.
