Looking for an easy way to “class”-up your classroom on the cheap? We’ll show you how you can turn an ordinary month-to-month calendar into a piece of art.
Find a monthly calendar on clearance in December or January. You can buy one of famous artists and their paintings, scenery, landscapes, or anything else you fancy. This purchase will offer you at least 12 inspiring images to brighten your work space.
Buy a 12×12 frame. Check a frame store or craft store, such as Michaels or Hobby Lobby (you can usually find coupons for these stores) or get a 3-pack online at Target.com.
Purchase a package of 3M Command hanging clips. Sticks to any type of wall and come off without leaving marks or taking off paint.
For $13 you can enjoy your new framed-picture making your classroom look more elegant and offering a beautiful picture for students to appreciate and inspire them.
Alternative: You can use any sized frame (easy to find at thrift shop or dollar stores) and with some nice stationary, you can print off your own favorite quotes.
