Students of all ages could use a boost of fun going back to classes. Whether you are at home, in a classroom or a dorm room a bit of encouraging diy school decor goes a long way. That sense of belonging that encompasses learning, independence and self-expression is invaluable. It is the perfect opportunity to sport school colors, mascots and trends. These two diy school décor ideas are simple and adaptable which makes them perfect for crafters of all ages and levels.
Let’s make a school spirit garland!
To create the garland, the following materials and supplies will be used:
- Chroma Blends Watercolor Paper (Cut to 3 x 4 inch pieces)
- Color Appeel Crayons
- Black Marker
- Hole Punch
- Pixie Paste
Start by drawing the letters to spell an inspiring word, mascot or school name on the pieces of watercolor paper.
Color inside the letters with the crayons. To get a clean look, first trace inside the black marker line with the crayon. Then color inside the entire space being sure to use all up and down strokes with the crayons.
Hole punch in the corners of each piece of watercolor paper.
String the letters together and lay the garland out.
Add Pixie Paste to get a shimmery and glittery look. Use different colors OR use the school colors. I am a UK Wildcat so I used the blues.
Hang the garland in a fun place like above a workspace or anywhere that could use some school spirit..
A garland is great for decorating dorm rooms, bedrooms, study spaces, classrooms, common spaces and also for college celebrations!
Next, create a back to school or classroom message board. A fun way to keep tasks and reminders! Assemble the following materials and supplies:
- Framed chalkboard (whiteboard or bulletin board)
- Poster Paint Pods
- Paint Brush
- Pixie Paste
- Push Pins
Paint the frame of the chalkboard with poster paint and let it dry.
Add a layer of Pixie Paste.
While it is still wet, add a couple of fun PatchEms.
Push a couple of pins in the top to create a place to hang keys or lanyards. Hang the board and put your diy school decor to use!
