My Class is SWEET! {B2S Bulletin Board Idea}

Wooohooo! My back-to-school bulletin board is finished! *Insert sigh of relief!* I have a love/hate relationship with bulletin boards. I love thinking of the idea, I hate carrying it out {it's stressful}, and I love the finished product. This year I am going to continue with the same circus/carnival theme that I had last year, and I think this welcome board goes with all my classroom decor perfectly -- that... and I just love candy.


To make this board I used my handy-dandy Silhouette Cameo, which means I didn't cut out a thing {well, except for the candy jar... 'cuz that thing is BIG}! My Cameo did most of it for me. Seriously, that machine rocks and I can't remember how I ever lived with out it. 

"Mrs. Erickson's Class is SWEET!!" I put my new students' names on the gum balls and made this large candy jar with white butcher paper. To make the jar lid, I used poster paper to make the shape of the lid and then covered it with tin foil to get the "metal" look. I am excited for my new firsties to see this board on the first day of school and I am sure they'll have fun finding their own names in the candy jar.


This is the only bulletin board I will be decorating this year, because I am going to turn this board over to the parents in my class. I just don't have the time for this during the school year and I have come to learn that some parents like to decorate a bulletin board every once in a while. At our back to school meeting, I will have a sign up sheet available, so my crafty parent volunteers can sign up for a month {or two}! Click {here} to see what my sign up sheet will look like. On this page I used the CK Primary font and you can download it free {here} and the My Own Topher font and you can also download it free {here}.

How do you decorate your bulletin board {or door} for the first day of school?
