Chalkboard Bulletin Boards

I'm not doing a classroom theme this year (shocking, I know!).  I'm really doing more of a color theme of bright colors of the rainbow and a touch of chalkboard.  I wanted my bulletin boards to really pop out, but we aren't allowed to use fabric.  I bought fadeless black paper (you can just use your school's butcher paper). I made them look like chalkboards with a few easy steps!

This is what it looked like before:

Here's what it looks like as I'm working on it (I plan to add wording and more arrows, but haven't done that yet):

Here's what you need:

White Chalk {Wal-Mart}
Eraser {Wal-Mart}
Spray Adhesive {Hobby Lobby}
 *I did not use the adhesive because I plan on erasing throughout the year and doing different designs*

Well... that's that!  Easy way to make your bulletin boards POP!


  1. That's cute!! I'm doing the same "theme"....colors with black/chalkboard pops!

  2. I covered my boards with black paper too!

  3. Clever, cute, easy, and cheap! Smiles and stop by anytime.

  4. Great minds think alike!...that's what I'm doing in my room too!

  5. That's so fabulous! So simple and inexpensive. I can't wait to see after you get them all up and running!!
