Wizard of Oz Theme Bulletin Board Ideas

Below are some Wizard of Oz theme bulletin board ideas for elementary teachers.

Wizard of Oz Bulletin Board Backgrounds

Consider using yellow butcher paper to create a yellow brick road bulletin board background. Another idea is to use blue gingham fabric as a background. If you prefer to keep it simple and use solid color fabric or butcher paper for your bulletin board backgrounds, we recommend going with the colors red, yellow, and blue.
