Making flowers out of felt is a great no-sew project and you can use them to make a floral wreath, some beautiful bunting or add them to gifts and other craft projects. I recently shared this as a live craft club and thought you might like to see a written-up version. You absolutely don’t have to make them in the same colours that I have but I have included the colours below so you can identify them in the above picture. Please share photos of yours with me on Instagram @alittlesewandsow
You will need:
Glue (ideally a hot glue gun but a tube of glue that will stick felt will be fine)
Paper and fabric scissors
Buttons (included in the pack above)
Cut a piece of your chosen coloured felt 9inches long by 2inches wide. Fold in half, length ways and glue together.
Take your fabric scissors and cut small slits into the felt all the way along the folded edge. You will need to cut to about half way down the felt.
Starting at one end, roll the felt up along the long edge, periodically securing with glue. Once finished ensure the end is secure and gently use your fingers to splay out the petals.
Cut three flowers shapes from the above template or if you don’t have a printer just draw your own!
Stack all three pieces on top of each other, staggering the position to add fullness to the petals. Secure each layer with glue (in the middle) and finish with a button or bead.
Cut one circle of felt in either a four- or six-inch size. These are the two largest sizes on the template sheet. If you can’t print that, go hunting in your kitchen for dishes, mugs etc. that are about the right size. As long as it is a circle, the exact size doesn’t really matter.
Carefully cut a spiral into the circle, right the way to the middle.
Starting at the middle, roll the felt around on itself, gluing periodically to secure.
Ensure the outside end is firmly glued.
Cut three circles, 3inches in diameter. This is the smallest circle on the template or you can find a small cup or a glass that is about the correct size.
Take one circle and fold in half and then into quarters and secure with glue. This will create a cone shape with a swirl inside.
Repeat for the other two pieces.
Glue all three pieces together with all of the points meeting. The bottom should look like this:
Carefully tease out all of the petals to finish the rose.
