Bulletin Boards on a Budget

I get ideas so many different places. Fairs, amusement parks, book stores, thrift stores, craft stores & even happy meal toys.  I check the clearance section of stores for nearly free finds.  Children’s picture books are a great inspiration for me. 

Here are a few suggestions for additions to a bulletin board display:

Film strips
Exposed rolls of 35mm film                                          
Movie film reels
Old fashioned popcorn containers
Ribbon…yards and yards of ribbon…
Gift boxes
Snowflakes/paper and plastic
Garlands of popcorn and cranberries
Plastic pumpkins
Silk leaves/Flowers
Fabric quilt squares
Stuffed animals
Heart shaped candy boxes
Peeps
Magazine covers
Seasonal decorations

Free posters
Baskets
Artificial fruits
Wired ribbon and garlands
Clothes
Graduation caps and tassels
Cardboard cutouts / decorations
Clothes pins
Chain / Lock & Key
Caution tape
String
American flags
Cookie boxes
Battery operated lights
Ornaments


There are a variety of things you can use to attach items to your boards: 
Double sided tape, push pins in a variety of shapes and sizes, black photo mounting corners, staples & scrapbooking adhesives.
