DIY Classroom Decor--Inspirational Poster Board

Over my many year of Pinterest I have seen the cutest things. My goodness Pinterest is great, is it not?!?! One of the many things that I had pinned long before I even had my classroom was an inspirational poster that encourages students and lets them know that they are loved and cared for. I love the message it conveys and I decided it was time to make my own! I pulled up the image on the computer as you can see below and went to town on my own :) I have no idea who "coined" this originally but props to them for such an inspiring message.

Since I am adding bright colors to my classroom this year, I decided on a pretty purple poster board that you can get at your local Michaels, Hobby Lobby, or crafting store. I already had a paint marker from a craft I was previously working on. I chose to use a white paint crayon to offset the bright purple. I looked back and forth at the computer and then my poster board. Back and Forth. Back and Forth. 

I also decided to pick up some cute scrapbook flowers to add just a touch more flair to my poster. I also chose to add flowers because when you buy a poster board, you know how there is a barcode sticker stuck right onto the poster board? Yea, well it left an off-colored, ugly blob right in plain sight so naturally, I had to cover it up! This craft project was so much fun because I love drawing new fonts and letters. This is what my final project looked like and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. This was my first Made It Monday projects of many to come.
