SIMPLE DOOR DECOR {Classroom 360}

Classroom 360 is a complete tour of my classroom as designed for the 2012-2013 school year. Each post highlights an aspect of my room with photos, a detailed explanation of it's purpose, and often times videos.

I can’t say enough about how much I love ribbon as a decorative tool. It adds a finishing touch to everything.

It's easy to find in just about every width, color, and pattern.

You can buy it at craft stores and Walmart and fabric stores.

At a low cost. Bonus!

Later this week you’ll see how I used it it define anchor chart spaces. In the past I have added bulletin board border alone to the window on my door and was quite happy with it. This year I decided to mix it up and use ribbon. 

I used the blue, but felt like it needed more color.  So I layered on some orange.

I slept on it and when I looked at it again the next day I felt like it needed a little something more. So I added the black border.

There wasn’t anything wrong with the window or it’s natural border. However, this is a great example of how simple (and also cheap and easy) touches can make a big impact on the overall appearance of your classroom.
Always be on the lookout for little ways that you can personalize your classroom and make it something special.
