Watch the how-to video and follow the steps below
Print our Seaweed & Coral Stencil and cut out the shapes.
Line the tray with a piece of blue felt. Mark it to size and cut with scissors.
Using your Seaweed & Coral Stencils, trace the pattern on to felt and cut out with scissors.
Using either a sewing machine or needle & thread, place seaweed piece 1 on top of piece 2 and sew down the middle. Fold seaweed piece 3 in half and sew together in a line.
Sew your seaweed pieces to your green felt. Fold the piece of felt in half over the wooden dowel and sew together.
Use a hot glue gun to glue seaweed pieces 4, 5, and 6 to the base of your blue background. Drape the seaweed dowel over the top of the box.
Decorate your Seascape with foraged shells and ocean-themed pieces, and either stand up or lay flat to play!
