Cactus Classroom Decor and More!

Cactus Classroom Storage I noticed that cactus themed classroom decor is really hot right now and they make any classroom have that chic modern look. I love that it is so light with the pale backgrounds and deep greens because green is calming and the white backgrounds bring more light into the classroom which makes a chaotic place feel clean and bright.  This theme really stands out on fabric. So you must have it on rugs, throw pillows, pencil cases, knick-knack bags, etc. Throw pillows are great for reading areas so why not incorporate some cute cacti there as well? I can't sew but I wish I could! If you're like me, you can use ready-made cactus pillows.

I love to find awesome classroom decor ideas. As an Amazon affiliate, I may earn a commision for purchases using my links. Learn more. The ideas and paid links below are based on Amazon finds that are great for making a cactus themed classroom.

Cactus storage bins                               Cactus waste basket

Cactus wall paper                                      Cactus transparent pencil cases


There's also cactus duct tape for making instant borders for your boards and posters. See the cute coffee mug here.


Always use neutral colors for bulletin board paper. This one above is a white wood paper roll. The other has a faux wood border on a black background.
Recreate a bulltin board like this using similar cactus cut-outs. Most bulletin boards use weathered wood bulletin board paper as seen in the picture above. This one also used paper flowers.

Some bulletin boards use a polka dot background with colorful accents. This teacher used a lot of bright colors but it is still a cactus themed bulletin board.

In this class, we stick together - cactus cut-outs, and border on wood bulletin board paper.

This cactus bulletin board proves that you can use colors that compliment green like yellow and blue. I'm actually loving this look with these blue and yellow border trims.

You can create your own cactus cut-outs for your bulletin board. In the picture above, the teacher bought one pack of the Eureka cactus cut-outs and based on the sizes of these, she drew and designed her own cut-outs for her students' names. I think they look fabulous! The Eureka letters and cactus border blend together perfectly.

Add these cactus accents to your large bulletin boards.

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
