This classroom door decoration idea for Teacher Appreciation Week is so cute. And there are like a bazillion of these ideas online. But I want to make your life easier. So keeping reading and you’ll see how my quick cut-and-paste process will make this project a snap.
Step #1: Gather door decoration supplies
Most schools will allow you to use their paper and other supplies to help you create your door decoration. I definitely took full advantage and gathered all the paper I needed. Here’s a list of supplies that you’ll need:
- Colored butcher paper (blue, black, red, yellow, orange, green and brown)
- White paper
- Measuring tape
Step #2: Assemble the background
The doors at our school are 35 inches x 83 inches. The blue butcher paper should be at least 60 inches long and the brown butcher paper should be at least 50 inches long. I overlapped the brown over the blue and made sure the final product was 83 inches long then I taped them together.
Step #3: Prep and glue the cutouts
I designed my door decoration ahead of time so it would be easier to put together. Use the design below as a guide to put together your door decoration.
Some of the items on the door decoration were small enough that I could print them on 8.5×11 paper and just cut them out. Here’s a FREE PRINTABLE – Door Decoration cutouts that you can print at home. Cut out each item and them lay them out on your background and them glue them into place.
Step #4: Cutout and glue remaining pieces
Here’s where you can use your creativity. Using the guide in step three, cut out the trees, tent, campfire and roasting stick. You kind of just have to eyeball it and see what looks good. It doesn’t have to be perfect. Then glue it into place.
Step #5: Tape it to the door
I made my door decoration ahead of time so that all I had to do was tape it to the door when I got to the school. It was a piece of cake and turned out pretty good.
I also caught a glimpse of some of the other door decoration ideas at the school. They were so cute. Here’s a few of them.
Of course, if you’re not in the mood to be crafty, here’s some pre-made classroom door decorations that you can buy on Amazon:
