Paris Bulletin Board

Bonjour fellow teachers!  I hope you've all had a good start to the year & that you're settling into your routine like I am.  I decided that my bulletin boards needed a fresh look this fall.  So I searched around on Pinterest for some new ideas.  I updated the look of my bulletin board by using a double border in red & blue, and some amazing silver glitter wrapping paper for the background.

I've never tried a double border wasn't too hard and I really like the look!  The glittery wrapping paper was purchased at a craft supply store (Michael's).  Here's what it looks like up close:

I also made the Paris banner.  I found these wonderful free printable letters on Pinterest here, and I love the look!  The banner was so easy to make.  I just printed the letters on white card stock, and then put decorative craft tape around the edges.  I strung them all together on red and white baker's twine, which I also purchased from the craft supply store.  Here's an up close view:

And voila!  A brand new modern look for a new school year!  While I was at it, I purchased some peel & stick chalkboard "wallies" and some wet erase liquid chalk markers (on Amazon).  It seems like chalkboard everything is the new look, so I wanted to try this out.  Here's a new decoration I made for the wall:

I hope you enjoyed these ideas...bonne rentrée à tous et à toutes! :)
