When I envisioned a western theme, I instantly thought of a palette of black and red. I wanted to create some interest and keep the room from looking flat, so I knew that I had to come up with another color to give it that “POP!” At first, I contemplated using denim, but knew that denim wouldn’t necessarily give the room that “WOW” factor that so many of you are looking for.
Yellow was the answer!
How would I incorporate yellow into a western theme?
SUNFLOWERS! Lots and lots of sunflowers!
Red and yellow look great together and it instantly changed the entire look of the room!
This was a fun room to create and I especially LOVE the window boxes on the bulletin boards (window boxes were created out of empty Kleenex boxes and stapled to the bulletin board). This is a great way to incorporate sunflowers into your western themed classroom!
Think of using the following décor items in your western themed classroom…
~bales of hay (keep them in packages)
~rustic barn wood bulletin board paper
~Paper Star (a focal point must!)
~twine to hang banners and
~barn scene roll to cover walls
Hope you enjoy my vision of a western themed classroom!
