In this tutorial I want to show you how easy it is to design you own flannel board. I actually put this together in under an hour. My children even helped me with picking out the color, embellishments, and the size of the board.
You're going to be surprise at how easy this craft is... Let's get started!
What are The Options?
But for simplicity sake, I went with the flat panel option (more on that in a minute).
Please make a mental note though, the panel canvas board is flat as a pancake and has no lip like the stretch canvas board.
The reason why I went with this panel type is because there wasn't a need to hang it and the length was perfect for my situation. I already had a place for storage for this flannel board. I have a long wall shelf, which is low enough for little hands to reach. Little ones can either tell a felt story at the wall or take it down for story time on the floor.
Choose whichever works best for YOU, it will be beautiful! :)
I've never tried it, but I have seen examples of them online.
At the end of this post, I'll have a few links to those sites that show you how-to make a picture frame felt board.
Step 1: Gather the Supplies
1. Artist Canvas Board
2. Precut Enough Felt to Cover Front Side of Board with up to 1-1/2 inch Overlay
3. Spray Glue or Staple Gun
4. Embellishments: Bulletin Board Strip, or Ruffles or Pom Pom Trim
Step 2: Iron Felt Material
Step 3: Get'ta Gluing
Step 4: Trim the Corners
Step 5: Make it Your Own: Embellish
You can be as creative as you'd like on this part. I have seen pom pom trim, tassels and ruffles at my local craft store that would be a super cute embellishment idea. But, whatever you've picked for this step, I'm sure it's going to be just as adorable!
