Chevron Classroom Decor and More

Chevron Classroom Decor and More 1

I noticed that chevron (the zigzag pattern) is not only popular in fashion, but also in classroom decor. They can make any classroom have that classy clean modern look. Especially if you have a lot of white in your classroom. The chevron, to me, adds more volume to any surface, giving it the illusion of more length, width or depth. As linings to line your library shelves, drawers and cupboards, it gives these areas a little more pop. You can also use contact paper for your DIY recycled classroom decor like magazine holders made of cardboard, bins, tissue paper roll pencil holders, etc

  • Chevron tapes: There’s chevron duct tape and chevron washi tape . You can use these for bordering your bulletin boards, white boards, chalk boards, posters and classroom center areas. Click here to see examples I’ve done with my classroom posters.

  • Use with clear pocket charts: This one is more than it appears… This is a picture of the back side of a file cabinet that is used for student mailboxes/homework pockets (see the clear shoe pockets). The chevron contact paper is on the cabinet (not on the pockets) and it was not even necessary to peel off the sticky backing.

  • Simultaneously hide papers and decorate pocket charts: The pictures above show aqua pocket folders in each pocket to hide the student papers behind it. Chevron contact paper was put on one side of every other folder to spice it up.

  • Use chevron fabric: Throw pillows are great for reading areas so why not incorporate a little chevron there as well? I can’t sew but I wish I could! If you’re like me, you would have to use ready made chevron pillows but if you are handy with a sewing machine you can make them yourself using chevron print fabric and save yourself a few dollars.

  • Make a chevron classroom floor rug using foam tiles
    :  Use any two colors of foam tiles to make an extra large chevron pattern. This works if you have a realy large classroom. For a small classroom, triangular tiles will create a smaller chevron pattern.

    Hi Mrs. Wyman! Washi tape is made from rice paper which is more durable than masking tape and is easier to work with because it is lighter and easier to cut. Duct tape is extra strong but harder to cut an it sticks up your scissors.

    Thanks for sharing all this great stuff and feeding our chevron obsession. Question about Washi tape. How different is it from duck tape? I can't find Washi tape locally in Massachusetts (I know I can order it), but I see loads of duck and other similar tape.
