A Cricut Classroom

Hey yall! Well, I told you several weeks ago about my visit to AL to see my family. My Mom is a 5th grade teacher there and I helped to decorate her classroom while I was home. We used alot of Cricut action and I wanted to share it with yall. You will have to excuse these pix. I took them when I was home. The school was not open to visitors, so the lights in the hallway were not on. I got the best I could.

My Mom has 2 windows in her classroom. I picked out this fabric and she made curtains. I suggested she add ball fringe to the bottom for some extra whimsy. The curtains are brown with hot pink, light pink, and lime green polka dots. Then we cut 2 large owls for each window. The owl that you see is from Disney's Happily Ever After.

On the door leading into her classroom, we cut more owls out. She will put the kids' name on these. The alphas are from Lyrical Letters.

I made this banner to Welcome people to her room. The pennants are from Lyrical Letters. I cut out the word 'Welcome' and added an owl to each one. I strung it together with twine. It is so cute in person. I wish yall could see better. We cut out another large owl and put her name on it so everyone would know it was her room.
Now for her large bulletin board outside. We used light blue fabric for the background and a dark blue border. The tree is paper that my Mom painted herself. We used the title 'This Year Is Going To Be A Hoot' and cut it out with Lyrical Letters. The largest owl is so cute!! I made it especially for Mom. I used some lace on the bust for it's feathers. I also added buttons to the eyes and a bow to her hair. Then all of the smaller owls are for the kids. She will put their names on them. I tried to make the branch more dimensional. I hope you can tell. The hallways are so narrow, I could not stand in front of the board and get the whole thing.
Here is a side view:
I put 2 little owls in the 'hole' of the tree.

This is her large owl.


I used Paper Doll Dress Up for the grass.

Now, I know I am partial since she is my Mom, but her classroom is the cutest thing!!!! I grinned each day I saw it. I hope yall will like it!
Thanks for stoppin' by! I am gettin' back to scrappin' this weekend and promise to share! Yall take care and have a beautiful weekend!
Pin It!
