DIY No-Sew Felt Flowers
What You Need to Make Felt Flowers:
- Felt, cut into various sized and shaped flowers and circles – we used our Sizzix Big Shot and the Flowers, Leaves & Stem #5 Die to make quick work of it, but you can also purchase pre-cut felt flowers to save time or simply use scissors and cut by hand!
- Buttons in assorted shapes and colors
- Felt Glue
- Wooden skewers, painted green (green paper drinking straws or floral wire will also work!)
- Green ribbon
- Low-Temperature Glue Gun
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.
(My kids had a TON of fun with this part and 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. 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.
Bundle 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.
These felt flowers are SO quick and easy, and they are SUPER cute! They make a sweet Mother’s Day gift, but really, they’d be a lovely and welcome gift any time of the year!
