Any Great Ideas On How to Hang Up Hall Displays without a Bulletin Board

Clip to ScrapBook #1

The school where I work has no bulletin boards in the hallway outside of my room. Each year I spend so much time using the sticky tape by 3M (which gets to be expensive and because it sticks so well it sometimes ruins the work when I take it off) to hang student work outside our door.

Anyone have any great ideas that might work?

Thanks!

My new room is teeny tiny with 2 teeny tiny boards. I need ideas on how to hang stuff as well.

ok- portable classroom
I bought that foam that comes in sheets - I put fabric over it and attached it to the wall - works well in a pinch.

Put them on the wall spread out as far as you want, and hang twine between them like a clothesline. Then you can hang up kids' work with clothespins. I have it like that on my back concrete wall, and it makes a nice display.

I just hung some really hard things that kept falling down with those mounting tabs for bulletin boards. Will find out Monday whether or not they will stay up this time.

Thanks for all of the ideas! I know that I can get one of them to work out for me this year and save me some money and time. I actually already have some plastic vines (greenery) left over from my monkey theme so I think that will work with the clothes line like idea.

Works really well, you buy it at a teacher supply store. Does not ruin paint or student work, holds up posters.

Hot Glue

I used hot glue on concrete block and it pulled the paint off.

I loved hot glue because it was easy. Any suggestions for using hot glue would be great. I love the idea of hot glue and clothes pins.

I hung up a huge beach towel outside of my door and plan on using mavalous tape to attach work. It was super easy and is cute!

Two big contact hooks, an extension rod, and a stapled hem and it was done!

before i put any paper work the students have done for display, i always put a strip of wide tape at the top and bottom on the back. Then I attach my loop of tape on that to put it on the wall. When i take it off, i just remove the loop and leave the strip. can't tell you how many years went by with some kids work torn because i couldn't get the tape off the back. i also do this with my borders that are not laminated or any posters.

Blue Sticky Tack

I use the blue form of sticky tack. It holds up posters on concrete and when you take it down, it does not take off the paint. I use in my classroom too because I don't have any BBs. Good Luck. Also, it is really cheap. You can get it at Wal-Mart, Target etc...

At my school, we have 2 screws at each end of the wall and a thin piece of wire attached to the screws. We use mini clothespins on the wire to hang the work up.

Seal and Peel- Can't be beat!

Clip to ScrapBook #17

For the last few years I have purchased a product called Seal and Peel Caulk. You need to use a caulk gun to apply it. I usually order it from a hardware store, but just googled it and it is sold on Amazon! It looks like hot glue, but peels off much easier and doesn't harm the paint on your walls. Things will stay up on the concrete walls for years!!

Cork Stripping and poster board
Old 08-02-2009, 09:32 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #18

We do not have the nice bulletin boards in our halls either. Our janitor hung up 3 cork bulletin board strips to make a standard size bulletin board length. I laminated 4 large sheets of poster board and taped them together. Then I attached the poster board to the cork strip with staples. I also added tape to the corners of the poster board to keep the breeze in the hall from lifting them up. I added my bulletin board trim by either stapling or using masking tape. I now have a bulletin board. I use masking tape to stick items to the laminated poster board. Items come off easier with masking tape. Some of the teachers laminate the border to the poster board so they do not have to change the trim. Also can use colored poster board, too. Mine has stayed up real nice all year.

If they will let you use the magnetic paint, then you paint over it the regular wall color and the places you painted are now magnetic.

Hang two hooks in whatever means you can, string a cord, and label clothespins with kids' names. Then you can QUICKLY and easily change kids' work to replace with new work. Walls aren't ruined, kids' work isn't ruined, and the best part is....it's fast for you!!!
