I noticed that chevron (the zigzag pattern) is not only popular in fashion, but also in classroom decor. They can make any classroom have that classy clean modern look.
Especially if you have a lot of white in your classroom. I love white! White may be a chore to keep clean with all those sticky fingerprints popping up but I like that it brings light into the classroom and makes a chaotic place feel clean. The chevron, to me, adds more volume to any surface, giving it the illusion of more length, width or depth. As linings to line your library shelves, drawers and cupboards, it gives these areas a little more pop. You can also use contact paper for your DIY recycled classroom decor like magazine holders made of cardboard, bins, tissue paper roll pencil holders, etc. Look at this cute see through pail! This can be lined in strips on the inside or on the outside as seen in the picture created by Melissa Roell.
There's also chevron duct tape and chevron washi tape (you know I love washi tape). You can use these for bordering your bulletin boards, white boards, chalk boards, posters and classroom center areas. Click here to see examples I've done with my classroom posters.
I almost forgot to mention the use of fabric. Throw pillows are great for reading areas so why not incorporate a little chevron there as well? I can't sew but I wish I could! If you're like me, you would have to use ready made chevron pillows but if you are handy with a sewing machine you can make them yourself using chevron print fabric and save yourself a few dollars.
