Buffalo Plaid Classroom Decor Ideas

This post is a growing listing of Buffalo Plaid Classroom Decor Ideas that are perfect for an elementary classroom.  A Buffalo Plaid theme or lumberjack plaid theme is very homey and red. It is totally fine to mix both the red and black plaid with the black and white plaid. They complement each other. I think you can call it a buffalo check or lumberjack plaid (even though there are tons of other lumberjack plaid patterns out there).

This classroom library has a black and white buffalo plaid rug. The teacher’s desk is decorated with a matching buffalo plaid triangle bunting banner. She bought both items from Amazon for her classroom. She is doing a farmhouse and buffalo plaid mixed theme.

This classroom has black and white buffalo plaid valences on every window and the printed buntings also have a black and white buffalo plaid pattern.

This bulletin board uses a black and white diagonal buffalo plaid bulletin board border trim. They match the bunting headers perfectly.


Store pencils or markers in these cute pails (#ad). These other little buckets (#ad) are really tiny and can probable only hold chalk or crayon stubs, lol. They are super cute though.

Barker Creek has a whole new collection of classroom accents that will match a buffalo plaid theme. They added some yellow and some Spring flair to their collection (see below).

These are buffalo plaid desk plates, library pockets, adhesive labels, and a blank calendar chart.

The most out-of-the-box thing I’ve seen so far is this awesome writing bulletin board display created by a second grade teacher.

It reads ‘Tall Tales in 2nd Grade’.

She layered a black and white buffalo plaid border trim to make it become the lumberjack’s shirt! Don’t you love this?
