How to Make a Felt Flower

Crafted with love and attention to detail, each felt flower in this collection is a unique work of art. From the vibrant hues of the petals to the intricate stitching that brings them to life, these whimsical petals are sure to bring joy and delight to any occasion. Whether you're looking to create a whimsical centerpiece for a special event or add a touch of magic to your home decor, this whimsical petals collection is the perfect choice. Let your imagination run wild as you explore the endless possibilities of these enchanting felt flowers.

For this project I used 9×12 basic felt sheets found at most craft stores. I purchased mine at Michaels. You will need your glue gun, a pair of scissors and beed or button for the middle if you wish. I used small glass pearl beads but only because I couldn’t find pearl buttons when I was t the craft store.

Step 1: Cut a square out of your felt. My square is about 3.5×3.5. Larger squares make larger flowers, smaller squares make smaller flowers.

Step 2-3: Cut a scalloped spiral into your square. Don’t worry about perfecting your scalloped edge. You can alway go back and trim the petals later.

Step 4: Starting from the center, roll up the spiral scallop. At this point you can either glue as you go or wait until the end to hot glue the layers and bottom together. You don’t need to go crazy with the glue gun. Just enough dabs here and there to hold it together so it doesn’t unravel.

Step 5: After you have glued your flower, feel free to trim petals or awkward pieces that are sticking out the back.

Step 6. Glue or sew a pearl bead or button in the middle.

Now you can add a small hair clip to the back (or elastic ponytail holder, headband, ribbon, clip and more!)

I had a couple small alligator hair clips lying around. I hot glued the flower to the the top of the clip and then cut a small strip of felt and hot glued it over the inside top of the clip and back onto the flower for a secure hold.

And that’s it!
