Throw back Thursday

I am linking up again with Cara over at The First Grade Parade for her throw back Thursday. 
This post is reminder of a fun little tip. I hope you can use this as you plan your decor for this next school year. 

I wanted to take a few minutes and share a cool tip with you. I really hate putting paper on my bulletin boards. The paper always rips and fades, and it also is just plain hard to get the paper up. At the beginning of the year, I use fabric on my boards. It is easier to put up, and I can keep it up all year. All I have to do is change the items on the board based on the seasons. And I don't have to put new paper up every time I change the board. I'm also able to keep the same fabric up year after year so in the long run, I save money!

 This is a picture of a map that I had up in my room. This was a piece of fabric that I found at a small store. 
 This was a spring board that I put up. I used a cute piece of fabric, and I used my cricut to cut out all the cute bugs and flowers. 
In this picture, you can kind of see that the bulletin board fabric is money. 

These two boards are some of my all time favorites. I just LOVE how they turned out. The top board was crayon fabric which went well with the theme, and the bottom board fabric looked kind of like honey combs. Have you ever thought of using fabric on your boards? I just love fabric in the classroom because it makes the room look so bright! 

I hope that everyone is enjoying their summer!!


  1. I love fabric--I agree it fades much slower than paper.
