Monsters Theme Bulletin Board Ideas
Below are some monsters theme bulletin board ideas for elementary teachers.
Monsters Bulletin Board Backgrounds
Consider using faux fur in bright colors as bulletin board backgrounds to create a fun textured look. If you would rather keep it simple and use solid color fabric or butcher paper for your bulletin board backgrounds, we recommend going with a bright assortment of colors or sticking with more neutral tones. Having neutral tones gives you more flexibility with decorating them.
Monsters Bulletin Board Trim
In addition to traditional border, put these items around the perimeter of your board.
- feather boas hot glued onto solid color trim and added googly eyes.
- strips of faux fur
- black border with googly eyes
- colorful tissue paper bunched up with googly eyes
- pom poms and googly eyes
