Felt Circles Flower

Felt Circles Flower - {The Ribbon Retreat Blog}

When I saw felt circles on the New Stuff tab at The Ribbon Retreat, my first thought was YAY! No more trying to cut out perfect circles! These things are such awesome time savers!

My second thought was these flowers.
Now that circles are already cut out, you can make these in no time!

– Supplies –

5 Felt Circles (Each pack comes with 10 circles)
Hot Glue
Ribbon to line clip
Embellishment for the center – Buttons

Start with one felt circle and fold it over.

Put hot glue on one side of the half circle and glue it onto another felt circle.

You will then take another felt circle (your third one), fold it in half, put hot glue on one side, and glue it down on the bottom felt circle next to the previous one (kind of in an L shape.)

Continue doing this with the rest of your circles.

When you get to the end (the fifth felt circle), you will put hot glue on one side of the half circle and put it under the first felt circle you put down.

It should look like this:

You should only see half of each felt half circle.

Next, add your embellishment.
I added a button.

Then prepare your clip by lining it with ribbon.

You could also use these really cute Bobby Pins that are new to The Ribbon Retreat!
It could give the felt flower a little more of a sophisticated touch!

Then glue your flower onto the clip…

… and you’re done!

It’s SO easy and could be a fun project for ‘tweens and teenagers.

You know how I love the Fourth of July, right?
I couldn’t help myself and made this one too. 🙂

Have you used these felt circles for anything other than a base for a clip?
I’d love to hear your ideas. 🙂

    I LOVE these! I just purchased some felt circles to make these! I was wondering… with the patriotic flower, is the top blue piece a smaller size than the rest of the pieces or is it just looking that way? I really like how that looks! Also, do you think it would be possible to sew the button on or do you think there are too many layers?

    Thanks so much! I can’t get enough of this blog!

      The top blue piece is the same size, but I stuffed it into the middle so it looks smaller. As for the button, I think you could probably sew it on. The glue is all around the edges, so as long as you’re not trying to go through glue, I think with a thimble, it should work. Let me know if it doesn’t. 🙂

    Made this flower today with black felt and it came out SO VERY CUTE! My 3 year old has black winter boots with pom-poms on them, so I thought this clip would be a good match for her cute little boots! Thanks for a great idea- looks like it cost a bunch, but only cost MAYBE 25 cents to make! LOVE it!

    How was the red, white, and blue felt circle made? Looks different from the pink one.

      Hi Yolanda! The only difference is the blue felt circle in the center. I added that piece and a rhinestone to the center. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks! – Shirley 🙂
