This Christmas bulletin board was built by fastening up cedar fencing slats. The can be fastened with screws or nails, but if you put on a paper baking and staple it especially tight, the boards can be hot glued to the paper. The poem is by Margaret Penner Toews. I had no large paper, so I painstakingly printed and glued and burnt around that piece.
I like bulletin boards with depth to them. The family I boarded with cut out cedar slats for the sideboards of the Big Green Egg barbeque. I responsibly resourced some flawed slats and built these shelves. It also gave me prime space to push good books. Think outside the page for borders. For this one I crumbled up pages from – you guessed it – the Budget!
This is a quick bulletin board for Thanksgiving Season. The students can find leaves to staple up. The students suggested things they were thankful for and I typed them on colored index cards.
