Reusable Classroom Banner DIY

Share This

Whether you’re headed back to the classroom or prepping for a year of homeschool, banners are a great way to communicate and inspire in the learning space. This reusable classroom banner DIY from Hipster Art Teacher shows you how to get your space ready for lessons and activities with the temporary tacking power of Aleene’s Tack-It Over & Over. You can change out your banners according to lesson plans, seasons, activities and more!

What you need:

Aleene’s Tack-It Over & Over

- Design & print program

- Laminating machine

- Scissors

- Wax paper

Step 1

Create banner art using design program

To create your garland, use an 8.5” x 11” file format and start by selecting a background pattern. Hipster Art Teacher chose a bright tie-dye background for her garland but feel free to choose whatever theme you like! Create the flag shape by making the shape and layering it on top of your background image, then choose the “create clipping mask” function. Next, decide what phrase you would like. Hipster Art Teacher opted for “STEAM,” which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math! Type one letter on each flag of your garland. You can even add an outline to make your letters really pop!

Step 2

Print and cut garland flags

Print your garland pages, then cut out each flag.

Step 3

Laminate garland flags

Laminate each garland flag, then cut around each, leaving about ¼” of lamination around the edges. 

Step 4

Make glue dots

To make glue dots for tacking up your banner, use Tack-It Over & Over to squeeze out dots in the sizes you need on a piece of wax paper. Let them dry completely before using. The dots will appear clear once they are completely dry.

Step 5

Mount banner using glue dots

Tack your glue dots behind each garland flag and press in place on the wall, whiteboard or even the front of your teacher’s desk! When you’re ready to change your sign, simply peel it away and add another with your glue dots.
