A friend of mine just moved into a new apartment and had nothing to put on her walls.  I made this felt board with inter-changeable pieces for her for about $15!  I'm sending her decorations for every season.  Check it out, though the pics aren't that great:

the felt sticks to itself!  for pieces that are being difficult, you can attach some coarse sand paper to the back with a glue gun.

Felt boards remind me of Sunday School. There were felt pieces of Jesus and his disciples and such, and you'd slap them up there while you tried to tell a Bible story from memory. Maybe not slap, but you get the idea.
Cute idea! I like how you stuck with the same view/picture, the snowman and sunflowers are really cute too. Smiley

thanks for all the positive comments!

the dimensions are 16x20.  I got the frame for $9.99 at target.  All you have to do is spray mount a large piece of felt to cardboard/foamboard and insert it in the frame sans the glass/plastic that usually protects whatever it is that's in the frame.  pop the back on the frame and voila!  your very own felt board.

then all you have to do us cut out shapes.  totally easy and very fun.

That is so cute! It definitely reminds me of Sunday School too - I guess church was all about crafty budget entertainment and I didn't even know it!
