Felt board ideas

Post by DigDig » Mon Apr 03, 2017 9:36 pm

Hi. So I very silly-ly bought pure wool felt, not realising there was a difference between the wool and acrylic kind. Turns out the pure wool kind doesn't stick to each other. *sigh*

I wanted to make a tree and have the kids stick leaves and flowers on it based on the season etc.

Anyone have any ideas on what I can do to get the felt to stick?

I've thought of velcro, but don't want to have bits of velcro all over the board. Any other ideas?

Would a bit of hairspray on the back of the pieces help?

I'm surprised it isn't sticking though - felt making is just getting felt fibres to stick together. Could you wash a bit of it with dishwashing liquid and see if it is stickier after? Maybe it has a coating on it?

Thanks Mummy woo. I'll give those a try.
Is there anything you can't do? You're a wonder!

Many many things I can't do - I just have opinions about everything!! The internet is perfect for me...
