We love it when teachers are creative with their classroom doors! It’s such a wonderful way to welcome students, and it really helps kick off the day on a fun and positive note.
We’ve pulled together some of our favorite holiday doors to give you inspiration and ideas for creating your own. You can also check out our how-to video at the end of this article. We used craft supplies from Quill.com/education to make decorating the doors easy and affordable. Here are some of the supplies we used (and love!):
