Making Signs For My New Classroom

Making Signs For My New Classroom

Hello and happy Saturday. One of my favorite things about being a teacher is actually decorating my classroom, and as I’ve said in previous posts I’m a midpoint between being a DIY queen and buying everything already done or just printing it. Today I’m showing you my process to make cute signs for my classroom. Let’s get started, shall we?

Step one is to print the blank letters. I used a font I found in Word and used the WordArt options to make it look 3D. Then I traced the edges by hand with a black marker. Of course, I’m sure there’s an option to have the letters come out with black edges, but where’s the fun in that?



You’ll see that I colored and cut each individual letter, so to make the process of setting up the bulletin board easier, and also to ensure that nothing would get lost or misplaced, I got a Ziploc bag and inside I wrote the actual message from the sign. I do that with every piece of decoration in my classroom so that it’s easier for me to store everything.





I colored each letter with markers.










Laminated the whole thing.












And then cut each individual letter.

Do you make your own signs for the classroom or do you buy them made? Let me know in the comments below.

Happy teaching!

Love, Miss Camila
