Teacher Appreciation Week is a big week! I always like to do something to show my appreciation. That’s why I like volunteering to do our Teacher Appreciation door decoration. So, I made this super simple but super adorable decoration. I have everything you need. Check it out.
I actually designed this door decoration two years ago right before COVID started around the world. School went online and I wasn’t able to decorate our teacher’s door. So, I kept all the supplies stored away until I had another opportunity. I was so happy to actually see it all come together. Here’s how you can do one yourself.
Step #1: Print and cut out your letters
Sometimes it’s hard to know how large to print and cut out the letters. So I did all of that for you. Just click on the link below. The letters can be printed on 8.5×11 paper on your printer at home. You can also use this free printable to cut the letters out on your Cricut or Silhouette.
Step #2: Glue letters to poster paper
Every school has different door dimensions. So, you’ll want to measure your teacher’s door before you start working on the poster. Our school doors are 35″ x 83″. Most of the time, your school will let you get your poster paper for free or you can buy some on Amazon. I just grabbed a large sheet of pink paper and cut it to the correct dimensions.
Lay out your letters where you’ll want them on the poster before you start gluing. I found that large glue sticks worked the best. Then roll up your poster and hang it up on the teacher’s door before you start taping on the poms poms.
Step #3: Hang your pink pom poms
You can get as creative as you want with these pom poms. I bought about six packages of pom poms from the Dollar Store but you could buy poms poms of all shapes and sizes to add variety to your door decoration.
Keep in mind that it takes quite a while to fan out all of the pom poms. But they are so adorable. The more you can fit on the poster, the cuter it will look. I ended up with about 30 small pink pom poms but I think I could have hung even more.
I hope this Teacher Appreciation door decoration turns out amazing for that special teacher in your kids’ lives. Here’s the link to the free PDF with the poster letters if you didn’t see it above:
