What is your favorite way to cover your bulletin boards? Between my bulletin boards, an old green chalk board, and an old unusable white board, I have 45 feet of space to cover.

When I was teaching I would find fairly plain colored fabric in the $1 and $2 bins--didn't have to change it out and holes from push pins or staples didn't show.

for years worked great. I rarely used traditional border which really saved time. But this year with my new pre k classroom I had to go back to butcher paper and fadeless paper. I forgot how much border is needed!. . . more $$ and time.

I like to use bed sheets, or even felt you buy on the big rolls. The felt is very cheap and has lots of colors. I did use black fabric last year and that made things pop. Good luck!

I've been using bedsheets from Walmart. They are either $3 or $4 for a flat twin sheet. I use black which I love!

How do you keep it up all year?

I use fadeless paper. I have three boards to do this year.

Table cloths

I used the plastic table cloths from dollar tree last year. They worked fairly well and the pin holes were barely noticeable. I bought black for all my backgrounds, and used solid colored border provided by my school.

I use fabric. Look for the sales at JoAnn's and/or use a coupon. I just moved up to 2nd and this room has 2 ten foot and 1 four foot BB. I was able to reuse fabric for two of the boards but I had to purchase fabric for the other 10 foot board. Once it's up I don't have to change it for many years. That's what makes it well worth the initial cost.
