 What You Need to Make Felt Flowers:

How to Make Felt Flowers:

Select the colors and sizes of felt pieces that you want to use (3 to 5 work best) and start layering. Add a dot of glue to the center of each layer to hold your flower together, but do not glue all the way to the outer edges. This will create a flower with more depth and dimension.

buttons and stems added to flowers and placed in vaseGlue a wooden skewer or paper straw to the back of the flower to serve as the stem. Felt glue will work, but hot glue will work even better as it holds strongly and dries quickly. (Always use caution and have adult supervision when working with hot glue!). Tie a short length of green ribbon to the skewer to create leaves.

vase of adorable diy felt flowersBundle your flowers together and place them in your favorite vase. Hint: if the mouth of your vase is too wide to hold the flowers upright, try placing a small piece of floral foam or playdough in the bottom of the vase to hold the stems in place.

  3. HI Heidi (and everyone)! these flowers are a perfect Mother’s day craft! I think I will try it with my Cub Scouts Pack. Can you tell me what kind of glue you got your boys to use to glue the felt and buttons together? thanks, Susan

  4. Thanks Heidie, that explains whythey are so perfectly uniform 🙂 I was concerned my girls would fall short. I went ahead and tried it using some templates and sme freehand. Thank You for the inspiration!

  5. Hi,this is BEAUTIFUL! I’d like to adapt it to a felt flower necklace project I’ll be teaching 2nd-4th grade girls. Did you use a template for the flowers, and did your boys trace and cut?Thanks foryour lovely work!

    1. Hi Jennifer!

      It would be rather simple to cut a template out of cardstock and then cut the flowers out of your felt. I have to admit though, that since I knew my finished flowers were going to be published in a magazine I went ahead and purchased pre-cut flowers from http://www.etsy.com/shop/bbdsupplies to save time and make them look extra uniform and pretty 🙂

  6. Seriously.. this is Hilarious! And only because this is totally something that I would do! I have an awesome idea.. make it happen and then um.. yeah.. lose it! So you didn’t FAIL persay.. you just put it hold until a later date.. but as far as the project.. I think you guys totally nailed it!

    1. Thanks Amie! Glad I’m not the only one who would do something like this LOL! 🙂
