My instagram feed is currently CHOCK-FULL of a-dor-a-ble bulletin boards. I’ve seen a lot of teachers asking how to make giant bulletin board letters and thought I’d put together a quick tutorial! Below are a few examples of what I mean – special thanks to Katie from Queen of the 1st Grade Jungle and Jessi from Cooties & Cuties for graciously allowing me to post their super cute pics in this post! 🙂
So, how do you make adorable letters like that for your own bulletin boards? Let’s get to it!
First, you’ll need to choose a font you love. Both of the examples above use MTF Jumpin’ Jack – this font is free for personal use!
Next, follow the steps illustrated below to create your letters. You’ll need access to PowerPoint on your computer. I have a Mac, so some of the directions may need a little tweaking if you are working on a PC, but the general idea should be the same!
Here a few items from Amazon to help on your giant bulletin board letter journey. The following links are affiliate links. The prices are the same for you, but Amazon gives me a small percentage of the purchase price if you choose to buy anything. Win-win! 🙂
2) Laminator for durability.
Want to skip all this and go the easy way? 😉 A cutting machine is way more expensive, but can be used for about a million and one things. The Cricut and the Silhouette are the two big names in the game.
I hope this helps! If you use this tutorial to make an adorable bulletin board, tag @onelessonatatime on instagram so I can ogle your handiwork! 🙂
Happy bulletin board making!
