Welcome Spring (and your kiddos) into class with this super creative bulletin board idea featured by Debbie over at Rainbows Within Reach. The 3-D flowers really bring the board to life and serve as a wonderful reminder that Spring is finally in the air!

3-D Spring Flowers "Welcome!"

  • Background: Use sky blue bulletin board paper for the top half of the board (the sky) and green for the bottom section (the grass). For a cute added touch, you could also use a bulletin board paper featuring clouds for the sky!
  • Title: "Welcome!" {you could also add Spring to the title if you wish}
  • Border: The example kept a clean look by not using a border, but you could always use a Spring-themed border if you feel it needs a little something extra!
  • Decoration: 1) The Flowers - To create the flowers you will need yellow and orange bulletin board paper cut into circles based on the size flowers you are creating. For each flower, scrunch the orange paper together and staple the edges to the board with the middle poofed out a bit to create the 3-D effect. Then, do the same with the yellow circles to create your petals. The stems will be created in the same way using brown bulletin board paper cut into long rectangles. Staple the stems to the board in several places to create a 'bent' natural look. (You could always add additional colors for the flowers depending on how colorful you want your board to be - for example, pink and purple would probably look fantastic!). 2) Accent Frogs - Keep it simple by purchasing a package of frog accents (or you could always create your own from clip-art online if you prefer). Then write each of your kiddo's name on a frog and space them around the board to complete your Spring time look!
