I am linking up with Really Roper's bulletin board party, by posting about a board I did in January.
But, that you could totally do as a Welcome Board.I had each friend create a paper-pieced self-portrait and hot glued blowers onto them. I also attached the hat which had been cut in half. I love when things pop off a board.
I usually do a variation of this where I take pictures of the kids blowing blowers wearing a "Happy New Year" hat and display them on the board the first week of school.
