i am in the process of tanning a snake and i want to put it on felt and a board. how do you do that? how do you adhere the snake to the felt and then the board?

The tanned snake skin can either be glued with contact cement or hot glue to the felt, or the better way would be to sew it to the felt, which is easily done on any home sewing machine. The felt backed snake can then either again be glued to the board, or you could get some attractive decorator upholstery nails, and nail it in place. Its all relevant to your taste
