Fall Felt Board Craft

Oh, the fun of felt material!! You can do so many things with it. This is my latest fall decor attempt...and it is multipurpose....not only is it decoration, it is interactive. Love it!! Here's what I did:
With a little help from some heat-and-bond and an old dry-erase calendar:
I ironed that felt right onto it. I used some brown for dirt/grass and some blue for the sky. 
Give your dirt a little depth and add some gently rolling hills. Then, I started making the felt characters!! Munchkin was a wake and involved in the process, so of course this wasn't just a fall-themed was a DINOSAUR fall-themed craft. They find their way into a lot of our crafts. :-) We got pumpkins......and, a VOLCANO!!!!
Where would the Great Valley be without Littlefoot and Petrie?? Nowhere. That's right. 
That yellow swirling vortex (thanks hubby for naming it so *aptly*) is actually a round hay bale. You know you see it. Just not necessarily very well. 
(Kinda looks like one of sir pumpkins eyes is getting pulled into the not-a-vortex, but that's beside the point)
Witches are essential. 
A little tangerinish paint for the frame and there you have it!! The perfect interactive fall decoration.
