PRO TIP:

Save time and effort by purchasing pre-cut felt flower pieces! Some of my favorite places to purchase die cut felt flowers are Over the River Felt, Planeta Costura, Benzie Design, and Amazon.

How to Make Felt Flowers

Use your scissors or die cutter to cut felt flower shapes in different sizes and colors. If you’re working with scissors, I’ve included a flower template below that is filled with all kinds of different flower shapes and sizes that you can use to assist you.

Once your pieces are cut, select the colors and sizes that you want to use for your flower (3 to 5 work best) and start layering. Add a dot of glue to the center of each layer to hold the flower together, but do NOT glue all the way to the outer edges. Gluing only the centers will create a flower with more depth and dimension.

My kids had a TON of fun with this part, and they really took their time selecting their favorite color and pattern combinations to make their flowers!

Finish the center of each flower by gluing on a colorful button, or layering two different sized buttons to create even more dimension.

Glue a wooden skewer or paper straw to the back of the flower to serve as the stem. The felt glue will also work for this step, but hot glue works 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.” If you want to get extra creative, you can use thicker ribbon and cut the ends into a leaf shape!

Bundle your felt flower bouquet together, and place them in your favorite vase. Now, they’re ready for gift-giving!

TIP:

If the mouth of your vase is too wide to nicely hold the flowers upright, try placing a small piece of floral foam or a bit of playdough in the bottom of the vase to hold the stems in place!

Crafty Felt Flower Variations

After you’re done creating your own felt bouquet, try some of these other fun projects using your felt flowers!

  • Glue flowers on to a headband or a hair clip for an easy and colorful fashion accessory.
  • Glue the flowers onto popsicle sticks to create cute flower bookmarks.
  • Attach the flowers to lengths of ribbon to create pretty floral wall hangings.
  • Use floral wire and floral tape to connect several flowers and create a felt flower crown.
  • Use a needle and thread to string the felt flowers into an adorable garland.

  2. I have many somewhere places lol ????The Flower are Gorgeous ???? You could use them for any Occasion ???? I would prefer to receive them than Fresh flowers Cheers Kylie in Australia ????

  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! 🙂
