Whats the best way to attach felt to a box? I found a ton of red felt that would go perfectly with my interior for like 7 bucks.

Any special glues or techniques to attach felt as opposed to carpet?

I used the 3M adhesive whenever I'm covering anything with velvet or felt.

I get mine at a local hardware store, so that's no help to you.

I haven't checked Walmart for it ... but I know Home Depot carries the 3M Super 77 spray adhesive that is supposed to work well with felt and other cloths.

well I finished it today, and I must say I am not very pleased. I did a really ****** job on the sides... luckily I will be building a new box soon that I will cover with actual carpet, turns out a red box didn't really look as good as I thought it would, and that felt is kind of hard to work with. :(

I ended up getting the cheapest adhesive stuff I found, some blue bottle for like 8 bucks. I just didnt want to spend 16 bucks on some friggin glue, and this stuff stuck pretty well
