bulletin board backgrounds

How do plastic tablecloths (the cheap ones from the dollar store) hold up as bulletin board backgrounds? I have some flat sheets that I was planning on using, and while they're nice enough, they're not the PERFECT colour. Yesterday I saw tablecloths that were the PERFECT colour...but I'm wondering which one will look best in the long run.

Thanks!

The table clothes worked just fine but I didn't change that bulletin board very often.

plastic cloths are in pretty colors but you have to consider the thin material. I purchased these to cover up word wall and bulletin boards during our required achievement testing and I had to double them as you could see through them. Just a thought.

that flannel backed tablecloths would work best. I have found that fabric works great. I don't change my background on my board at all. I wash and iron. the fabric in the summer and even with the staple holes, it bounces back. Last year I made curtains to match my bb.

Colorful fabric will last longer and look better. Wal-Mart has great prices on fabric (ocean, birds, jungle,solids and prints). I even use fabric to cover my tables, teacher's desk and filing cabinets. Fabric really adds a splash of color to your room.


Have fun with your room!

I use the colorful fabric too. It doesn't show any of the staple holes when you are finished and looks GREAT all year!

cheap plastic cloths. I doubled them, so that the color was more vibrant. They lasted all year...just be careful pulling staples out of them.
