Felt flowers are a beautiful and simple way to add a touch of decoration to any project. Whether you’re adorning a hat, a headband, or a card, felt flowers are an easy way to add color and interest. You can make them in any color imaginable, and they’re relatively quick and easy to make. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to make three different types of felt flowers.
What You’ll Need
-Felt in various colors
-Needle and thread
-Buttons or other embellishments (optional)
1. Start by cutting out a circular shape from your felt. This will be the center of your flower.
2. Cut six petals out of your felt, making sure they are all equal in size.
3. Take one petal and fold it in half, then sew a few stitches along the edge to secure it. Repeat with the remaining petals.
4. Once all of your petals are sewn together, start attaching them to the center piece, spacing them evenly around the circle.
5. Once all of your petals are attached, you can add a button or other embellishment to the center of your flower.
Step One: Cut Out Your Felt Pieces
Start by cutting out your felt pieces. You will need two large petals, two small petals, two stamen, and a small circle for the center of the flower.
Step Two: Assemble Your Felt Pieces
Now it’s time to start assembling your flower. Begin by hot gluing the stamen to the back of the small circle.
Next, take your large petals and hot glue them to the back of the stamen/small circle piece. Make sure that the petals are slightly curved as you glue them down.
Take your small petals and attach them to the large petals, again making sure that they are slightly curved.
Step Three: Attach Your Flower To A Hair Clip Or Headband
To finish off your flower, simply hot glue it to a hair clip or headband. And that’s it! You now have a beautiful handmade felt flower!
Step Two: Layer and Sew Your Felt Pieces Together
Take your two pieces of felt and lay them one on top of the other. Use a yarn needle and thread to sew the two pieces of felt together along the edge. Make sure that you leave a long tail of thread so that you can use it to tie off the flower later.
Step Three: Attach Your Felt Flower to a Hair Clip or Headband
Now that your felt flower is complete, it’s time to choose how you want to wear it! You can attach your flower to a hair clip or headband, or even use it as a brooch.
To attach your felt flower to a hair clip, simply glue or stitch the flower onto the clip. If you’re using a headband, you can glue or stitch the flower directly onto the headband. For a brooch, just add a pin backing to the back of the flower.
Now that you know how to make a felt flower, have fun creating different flowers in all sorts of colors and styles!
Now that you know how to make basic felt flowers, you can experiment with different shapes, sizes, and colors to create your own unique flower creations. You can also add embellishments like beads, buttons, or sequins to add extra flair. Get creative and have fun!
