Bulletin Boards that won't break the bank...

Sadly, weekly Monday Made It has come to an end. Why? Well, there is that little thing we call, Back To School...Dun Dun DUN!
I'm officially a teacher again. Summer is done, over, finished, gone.*sigh*. 
*Happy Face* Now I get to meet new faces and have a chance to change a life or two! 
I have been a busy little bee in my classroom. Let me tell you, that sounds easier then it was. The district likes to save by not turning on the air in the whole school . I live in Florida peeps. It. Was. HOT! I felt like my face was going to melt off. 

I'm blessed to have a wonderful hubby that was there to help me every step of the way. I'm a shorty and putting up bulletin boards and lanterns is impossible for me LOL. 
Here is a quick pic of my hubby in action. 

 So, I'm a teacher. That means I make tons of money. BAHAHAHA.
However, that little money we do make, usually goes back into the classroom. 
I have a way to make your bank account stay engorged with all of our teacher Cha-Ching. 

 Guess what I used for the background? That expensive bulletin board paper that promises not to fade? NOPE. 

I used a plastic tablecloth from the dollar store. I love the look of it. 

I used left-over paper that I had from a another project for the circles. Yes, that is glitter paper you see. I love to sparkle. The owls were from last year and the tree trunk was paper that was used to cover bookshelves over the summer. I love recycling!
Now time to begin this school year. When do you go back? How is your classroom coming along? I'd love to see pics.
