How to Decorate a Classroom Door

Decorating a classroom door can be a bit intimidating if you just scroll through Pinterest and think, “my goodness, how much time did that take!” But, when you break it down, many of the designs that seem complicated aren’t that hard!

All classroom door designs include these elements:

  • Background
  • Main subject
  • Supporting words/elements
  • Filler decor

Once you realize there are only four parts, these scary Pinterest designs don’t seem that hard!

And of course, you don’t have to go super elaborate. The classroom door decorations below mix easy inspiration designs with more complicated ones so you have something amazing no matter how much or little time you have to create it.

It also helps to sketch out inspiration designs in advance. This will help with scale and deciding how much of each supply you need.
