Thanks for the good ideas everyone. I knew you were the ones to ask.

If you are looking for western ideas, try oriental trading co. (www.orientaltrading.com
) I ordered 24 foam cowboy hats. These are on my bboard in the hall. I made a cute cowboy and cowgirl at our media center. I found bandana border at a local school aids shop. My caption reads, "Yee Haw! Come on in and hang your hat! Trend had 2 cute bulletin board sets with stick cowboy figures. I bought both and am using them to decorate my cubbies and calendar board. The sets come with several cowboy/cowgirl cutouts, bandanas, and cowboy hats. Each set was $9.99. I bought a couple of straw cowboy hats at a local discount store. I also found old horseshoes, and wooden signs. These are decorating my library area. (oriental sells 12 straw hats for $14.00)
The best find was a really cute boot flag for $21.00. That price included shipping and handling. The website is www.justforfunflags.com
I ordered on a Thurs. and had the flag in the mail on Mon.!!
I found a metal bracket at Target to hang the flag outside my classroom.
