Hello again, it’s Brynde from The Ribbon Retreat. Today I’ll be showing you how to make some fun and easy Felt Flowers.
I used Felt Sheets from Michaels for this project. For a little smaller flower, you could use The Ribbon Retreat’s
1 3/4″ Felt Circles.
Ok, lets get started!
1. First I cut my felt into squares getting ready to cut circles out.
2. I used my die cut machine to cut out (6) 2″ circles and (1) 1 1/2″ circle. If you don’t have a die cut machine, trace a circular item and cut out with scissors. I started out making mine this way. 🙂
1. Fold your felt circle in half.
2. Put a dab of glue on the right third of the felt and bend it upwards making an “ice cream cone” shape.
3. Now flip your felt piece over and do the same to the left third.
4. The finished piece should look like an “S”.
I like to use alligator clips to hold my “S” pieces in place while the glue dries.
Take your smaller 1 1/2″ circle and run glue over the entire surface. Then start laying your “S” pieces down in a circle.
Just eyeball the center point.
Once the pieces are all on, I like to fill in the center hole with a little more hot glue to make it even more secure.
Now put the fabric on your cover button. The kit comes with very detailed instructions on how to put the buttons together. They are super easy and turn out so cute. I think I’m addicted to cover buttons now!
When the cover button is finished, cover the back with a good amount of glue and secure to the center of your felt flower.
Once all the glue is dry, fluff your “S” petals, and you have just made one super cute little felt flower! Finish your flower off with a hair clip or brooch pin.
The color combos you can create are endless. It’s a great way to use up your favorite fabric scraps! Have fun creating!
Until next time,
