Bulletin Board Letter Tutorial Part TWO!

Have you seen enough bulletin board pictures yet?  I, for one, can never get enough.  On my LAST post, I shared a video tutorial on how to make different types of Bulletin Board letters.  Today, I have a new tutorial for you!

I helped my friend with her hallway bulletin board, so I wanted to share how I created it!


First, let’s talk about the things I used {Amazon Aff Links when applicable}.

Astrobrights Cardstock:  Amazon

Black Fadeless Paper:  Mardel or Amazon

Paper Fans:  Hobby Lobby or Target

Tassle Banner:  Target (can also be found on Amazon by searching Tassle Banner)

Black Chevron Border:  Any Teacher Store

She is teaching 4th Grade Science and Social Studies this year, so we wanted to welcome the students with something bright and fun!  This is an actual bulletin board, so we were able to staple everything up.  I use Cardstock Paper when I can because it doesn’t flop over quite as much and holds up better. Astrobrights paper also doesn’t fade quite as easily as construction paper does.  I do use A LOT of staples because I don’t want it to curl, bulge, etc in the Texas humidity!


To check out how I made the Banner Letters, click HERE or watch below!  If I’m being completely honest, there is probably an easier way… BUT this is the way I’ve always done it!  I do love creating my own letters because I get the exact style, saying, and color that I want!  Plus, once you know how to do it, it’s super easy!

Happy Creating!

  1. Thank you for showing us how to do this! You make it look so easy. I can’t wait to make my own.

  2. I found tassles like that at the Dollar Tree. They aren’t attached to the string, so I was even able to buy several packs pretty cheap and use the colors I wanted out of them.
