Amazing Classroom Reveal: Using a Cricut for Classroom Decor


For years I have drooled over the classroom photos on pinterest (and I still do). There are so many talented teachers our there with an eye for design. You often see fancy lettering and shapes in these classrooms that look like they spent hours meticulously cutting out each letter. I'm not sure how long it was before I realized that these letters were actually cut with a machine! This blog post features the classroom of the talented Mrs. Richardson from @ReadWriteRichardson on instagram.

Cricut: Not Just a Crafters Tool

I am not a crafty person and I don't have a great eye for design but I am creative and I can write teaching resources like nobody's business! When it comes to designing and decorating my classroom though, I look to others for inspiration.

I came across Mrs. Richardson's class photos in a Facebook group that we are both in and right away I thought of my readers. I knew you all had to see this classroom. Most of her lettering was done using the Cricut, which is a personal DIY cutting machine.

This is what it looks like:
Anyone (including a non-crafty person like myself) can use the cricut to create beautiful classroom decor. There are tons of youtube videos that walk you through how to use it as well as many free fonts online. A friend of mine is using hers to make some Disney shirts for me for my upcoming trip and I had no idea that you could use it for classroom decor until she added me to a Facebook group. So, guess what is on my Christmas list now? 

Check out the rest of Mrs. Richardson's classroom. It's so well put together. I want her to come set up my room!


I love the lettering on the globe above! What a neat idea.
