To begin the Space Themed Felt Board, gather all supplies. Remove the supplies from the packaging. Center the canvas board upside down on the 12” by 18” Kunin© Premium™ Smoke Felt. Run a small line a glue from a glue gun and fold over the edges of the felt. Repeat around all four edges of the canvas board.
Once all four sides are glued, carefully cut the corner fold straight with scissors. Then cut the corner at an angle, like an envelope. Kunin Felt won’t fray when cut, so it is perfect for a quick and easy kids project like this felt board.
Fold the four angled edges up over the back of the canvas board corners, securing with a glue gun and glue sticks.
Download, print and cut out the space shapes from the pattern sheet. Trace onto the bright and bold colors of Kunin© Classic™ Felt with a permanent marker or attach the patterns with straight pins.
Cut out with scissors, inside the lines, so you have a clean finished project. Experiment with colors and have fun.
Cut out the accents from contrasting colors of Kunin® Classic™ Felt having fun with the color selections. Attach the layers of felt using a glue gun and glue sticks.
Attach the wiggle eyes with a glue gun and glue sticks to the aliens, placing them in fun number combinations and patterns.
The magic of the felt board is that due to the rough textured fibers of the Kunin® Classic™ Felt the pieces will stick to each other and to board!
