Our 2015-2016 Classroom (decorations)

I still get very excited about back-to-school sales every summer.  One of my favorite things to do with school supplies is to decorate with them!

The crayon art board is an 11x17 canvas from Walmart and two and a half 24 packs of crayons.  I took out all the non-rainbow colors, including pink, and lined the rest of the colors up according to the rainbow.  All the colors have two crayons each, except for the main colors, which have three.  I used a hair drier to melt the crayons, but a heat gun is better if you have one available.

The crayon box on the wall is empty- I just thought it was fun.

This wood tray came from Goodwill.  It holds our globe, microscope, and a vase of dollar store flowers.  The vase is a clean tin can with pencils hot glued to it.  It took just under 40 pencils to cover the can.  The tray sits at the very top of our shelves when not in use.

Another school supply that I've used for decorating is clipboards.  I hang them on our walls around the room and use them to rotate signs and quotes throughout the year.

I shared earlier this month how I used rulers to make a border on my calendar board.  *Here's* the link to that post.

Although it isn't exactly a school supply, the above poster was bought a Teachers Pay Teachers and is new this year.  I printed it as a "colored blueprint" from Staples, which cost me less than $5.

Hope this inspired you!  How do you decorate your homeschool classroom?
