Spray paint the dowels and finials with a color which coordinates well with the hues of felt. In order to create the wall hanging, first cut the yards of fabric to the intended size. Two different sizes which work well are 36" x 24" and 48" x 36".
When the glue has dried, attach the finials along each end of the dowels (most finials will simply screw into the end of the dowels, if not, use hot glue). For hanging purposes, unfurl spool of decorative rope or twine approximately 8 to 12 inches longer than the width of the cut felt background, and then make a knot on each end of the top dowel.
To put an equestrian spin on the game, use riding goggles in place of traditional bandanas. In order to turn the goggles into blacked-out blindfolds, trace each of the eyes directly to black felt using white marker or chalk. Next, cut the black felt to size. Place the felt inside of each goggle eye and then secure in place with black electrical tape.
