I’ve had a ton of people inquire about this cute awning! An awning is a great way to add impact to boring bulletin boards.
Want to know the secret?
It’s SO easy!
Just use a presentation board.
You can find them at any office supply store.
With some bulletin boards, you can slide the presentation board behind the bulletin board and leave the top fold out (this is your awning).
BUT, some bulletin boards are attached to the wall and you can’t fit it behind.
1. Staple the presentation board to your empty bulletin board, but make sure you leave a fold exposed at the top for your awning.
2. Cover your board with construction paper to hide the presentation board. Clever, huh?
3. Next, cut bulletin board paper to cover the exposed awning and glue (I used rubber cement) to cover the cardboard.
4. Last, trim it out with a cute border from Creative Teaching Press. I like to use either a scalloped design OR use one of their new pennant banner borders!
Pennant banner borders are PERFECT for awnings!
If you want amazing bulletin boards in your classroom, definitely try an awning over the top! SO CUTE!
