How To Make Felt Flowers
In this tutorial I will show you how to make 2 different types of felt flowers and how you can add them to a cushion, make wall art out of them or even wear them as a fashion accessory.
FELT FLOWER SUPPLIES:
- Felt Sheets
- Hot Glue Gun
- Self-Healing Cutting Mat
- OLFA Circle Rotary Cutter
- Scissors (or rotary cutter for straight lines)
- Buttons (or Gemstones for centers)
- Fabric for Wall Art or Cushion Cover
- Headband (If you plan on making a headband for a little girl)
The entire step-by-step video is below, but first I want to make sure you know that you will have to make a lot of cuts, however with the rotary cutters mentioned above, the process goes much quicker.
The first flower will require 2″ felt circles for the petals and a larger circle for the back. The flowers are made with hot glue, and will only require needle and thread if you wish to attach them to a cushion.
The second flower will require 3 different size squares to create the petals. The larger squares are for the outer petals and the smallest go in the center.
Now sit back, grab a cup of tea (or glass of wine) while I show you how to make these felt flowers super quick and super easy! They will look great with some of Pam’s DIY Picture Frames.
Here’s another look at the finished cushion I made for my daughter’s nursery! There are tons of great Felt Projects on FaveCrafts. Go have a look!
