Summer has ended and classrooms start to fill with the excited chatter of children. If you’re looking to present your students with a vibrant surprise, Treetopia’s here to inspire you with colorful ideas. Read on to learn how to turn your room into a fun and fabulous space with the help of art teacher extraordinaire, Cassie Stephens.
Our friend, Cassie is an art teacher, decorator, and creative who loves to spread joy in and out of her classroom. With a sunny personality, she embraces happy and vibrant hues. This translates not only to her outfits, but also into her amazing art. So when it was time to decorate her classroom for a new semester, we were more than happy to help her out.
Walls & Halls
Proving that being creative also means being resourceful, Cassie decided to use recycled materials to decorate her art supply-themed wreath. She created DIY ornaments for her Rainbow Wreath out of toilet paper tubes. Simply amazing! When ready, hang your wreath on walls, hallways, or entryways for a festive welcome.

Cassie was so excited when her Rainbow Tree arrived that she simply couldn’t wait to set up and decorate Mr. Roy G. Biv immediately! She transformed her classroom into a colorful utopia to match the rainbow theme. To create her DIY art supply ornaments, Cassie handcrafted giant crayons, added in large palette-shape trays, and colorful paint brushes.
