These adorable felt flowers are so easy to make and the possibilities are endless! Make them big or small! Create a perfect accessory!

Here’s what you’ll need…

Photobucket

  • Boiled wool a.k.a. FELT! But be sure to get high quality wool! Not the sheet you can pick up for 50 cents at a craft store! You’ll want the good stuff from a fabric store!
  • colored thread and needle
  • embellishments like buttons, gems, glitter dots and what ever else your creative mind can come up with!
  • glue gun and glue sticks
  • scissors
  • 3×5 card for pattern making
  • alligator clip, headband, pin… to attach the flower to when done!
Let’s get Started!

cutting

  • First take a 3×5 card and free hand a similar shape for the petal. I think it looks like a happy molar! hehe!
  • trace 5 petals on your piece of felt.

pettel

  • Cut those 5 petals out being sure to cut inside your pen park so it doesn’t show up on the cut out pieces.
  • once you have all 5 cut out you will now take each one and sew the two little feet together, over lapping them in order to create a little pucker.

sewing

  • Take each completed petal, one at a time, and slightly over lap it on to another petal.
  • sew them together close to the bottom so they are now attached.
  • continue adding and sewing each petal ’till you have a fully assembled flower.
Now to add a Leaf

leaf

  • take a small piece of green felt and fold in half and cut out a leaf shape.
  • using green thread, add a simple stitch by hand to create the veins on leaves.

glue

  • Take the “oh so adorable” finished leaf and glue gun it to the back of the flower.
Now for the embellishments!
embelishment

  • Here I used two buttons stacked on top of each other.
  • hand stitch them together
  • Hot glue the button stack on to the center of the flower.

And there you have it!!!

finished flower

Attach your finished flowers to headbands, clippies, and pins to adorn a shirt. they would also look great on a purse, journal or anything else that needs a little charm!
