236: Make a Bulletin Board with Me

Do you spend hours trying to make everything fit on your bulletin boards and look good at the same time?

I’m taking you through my process of putting together a bulletin board and teaching you how to plan it out in advance so that you know everything will fit in the space that you have.

Creating a mockup to scale is the simplest way to plan out your board, and you can use software to make it even easier. It will save you a ton of time because you know exactly what your board will look like before you start putting it up.

I’m covering everything you need to know about planning color, text, shapes, and space. With a little help from this episode, you’ll be able to put your boards together faster than ever.



Make a bulletin board with me

In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 

  • What I use to plan out my bulletin boards
  • Creating a template 
  • Getting your measurements right 
  • How to create your mockup to scale 
  • Creating a color scheme 
  • How to plan out the layout of your text before you know what you want it to say 
  • Saving yourself time in the long run


I hope this helps you understand how to put your boards together systematically to make sure that everything fits in an organized way. You might think it sounds like a lot of work for a bulletin board, but I promise that spending some extra time on this upfront will save you hours of time when it comes to actually assembling your boards on the walls of your classroom.
