Felt Flower Tutorial
Felt flowers are cute and look much more difficult then they really are. They add a designer look to your wreath, but also a handmade quality that you can’t find in any store.
Begin by taking a CD and a sheet of felt. Lay the CD on your felt and trace around using a permanent marker. Use fabric scissors (you can use regular scissors but it will require more elbow grease), to cut out your circle. Note: if you want different sized flowers use another circle size, such as the end of your ribbon roll or a cookie cutter- that’s what I did!
Begin cutting your circle from the outside in a spiral pattern. It does not have to be perfect! Mine definitely wasn’t and my flowers turned out great. Honestly, I think the imperfection makes them a little more whimsical, so no straight lines please!
Starting from the inside, begin rolling your felt into a spiral pattern. Try to make it as tight as possible so it is not a loose flower.
When you are finished wrapping, take the end and hot glue it to the flower, to ensure it won’t unravel.
All kidding aside, the flower below was my FIRST flower I’ve ever made. It’s THAT easy!
These flowers are adorable just like this, or you can choose to add pearls, buttons or gems to the center. I personally bought some adhesive pearls and glued to just a few of my flowers.
