I posted a picture on my Instagram of my latest DIY project. I have been wanting to make a felt board for some time now and finally found some free time in between naps and housework! :)
The board was super easy to make. I followed this AMAZING tutorial from Ashley over at One Sharp Bunch. Everything I needed I found at Michaels (and used my coupons and teacher discount too): 16x20" picture frame, black felt, and Tacky Spray glue. Check out Ashley's tutorial here for more details.
I've been eyeing up this awesome rainbow craft/photo storage kit from Michaels, but didn't know what I would use it for. Then I thought it would be great to house different story kits to use with the felt board! Here it is in all it's glory.... holding 16 different story retelling kits!
Here's a look at the story telling sets that I created. I've linked to Amazon (affiliate links) to find the books I used and the links to where to get the clipart sets as well.
One thing that I found with these printed felt pieces is that you can't layer them on top of each other because the felt is covered in the transfer. So I used sticky velcro dots from the dollar store where I wanted the felt pieces to stick. On this example, I placed the rough piece of the velcro dots on the dog so that the soft backing of the coloured dots stuck to the dog.
