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 project....it 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.

  14. I love this fall scene. You could do the poem: 5 Little Pumpkins sitting on a gate. The dinosaurs are great too. I did a Dr. Seuss felt board if you have time to take a look. http://www.obseussed.com/2010/10/halloween-life-size-jack-skellington.html

  15. This takes me back a few years. I remember doing something similar although not quite as good as yours for my daughter's themed 5th birthday. She was all about ballet so we did a Swan lake party and I made a felt board and told the story with felt characters. I loved this kind of thing as a kid. They did it at our story hour at the library so I though the girls might like it too. They did. :0
    I'm sure yours are thrilled.
