Hello craft people <waves>

I am doing a Wizard of Oz themed room for DD for her birthday (4th) as she is OBSSESSED with it. Need to move her into the larger room anyway.

So I asked her very crafty aunt and uncle last week and they had some brilliant suggestions which is great because I have no creative bones in my body and would probably just have put up a poster blush...

But that made me wonder what other crafty people might come up with so I thought I would ask here. So far ideas are:

Taking her exisiting bed canopy (one of those white IKEA ones) and twisting it to create the hurricane and hanging little farm animals etc off it;
Getting big tins and making some kind of Tin Man shelf thingie - maybe with a heart with lights up in one of the tins;
Apliqueing ribbon to the curtains to create an Emerald City;
Having the dressing up stuff (with ruby slippers for all) so everyone can be a character when they visit;
A mobile of flying monkeys;
A knitted Toto;
Getting a 'There's no place like home' sticker thing to go somewhere.

I'm now struggling on the yellow brick road and the rainbow and how those could be done. DD has some little blue bird clip things we put invitations etc so I'd like to put them 'over the rainbow' somewhere.

Was also wondering whether I could get green fabric boxes for the shelves and that could be an emerald city (with storage).

I also need to source stuff. SIL will make the monkeys and the Toto (phew! - I love SIL)

Any ideas would be SO gratefully received.

Yellow brick road and rainbow on a wall? Look on ebay for decal stickers or wallpaper mural. Or my preferred choice - paint them yourself. With masking tape it could be really easy. Sounds fab

You could use duplo or lego to make the yellow brick road and 'frame' it on the wall.
How about a light that projects a rainbow? You used to be able to get rainbow light bulbs.

How about a hot air balloon lampshade?
Toy tin man, scarecrow and lion for the bed?

You could get a length of yellow carpet to use as a yellow brick road?

How about a doorstop like this

You could paint a section of wall with sky/rainbow, yellow brick road and maybe the Emerald City I the distance?

DD has this rainbow decal in her room - I've put clouds at either end of it. It is a very good quality decal, easy to apply and sticks brilliantly

Thank you so much everyone who responded. Sorry for disappearing for ages.

I think it's going to look brilliant. Just need to source a load of ruby slippers! smile
