This last week, we celebrated a lot of felt…our brand new gorgeous, easy to craft with felt! And, Thursday we are bringing you another felt project that is so super cute and one you are not going to want to miss! This crafting felt is so much fun and with over 35 colors to choose from, we have you covered for any project you have coming up OR are currently working on! Today, Shirley is back with her adorable Felt Rolled Flower that she introduced last week in our video tutorial. We love this flower so much, we wanted it in written form too for all of you who prefer a written tutorial over a video tutorial. Enjoy making this gorgeous little flower and see you on Thursday for a whole new felt project and brand new video tutorial!
Felt flowers and hair accessories are so popular right now. There are tons of different cute flowers you can make with felt, and we are starting with this cute Felt Rolled Flower tutorial!
~ SUPPLIES ~
Start by cutting your felt into circles. My big circle is about 3.5″ and the smaller one is about 2.5″. The bigger your circle the bigger the flower. You can use a template (or trace around a cup or bowl) if you’d like.
Cut your green felt into leaves. You don’t really need a template for this because leaves are all different shapes and sizes too. 🙂 Just make them proportionate to the flowers. You can cut them after your flowers are made if you’d like.
Take your circle of felt and cut it into a spiral. The outside you want to be wider than the inside, so start out making a wide strip and slowly make it smaller. Do this to the smaller circle as well.
Take the inside of the spiral and start rolling it in. Keep the bottom of the felt lined up as you’re rolling. Then when you get towards the end, hot glue the strip to the flower.
Cover the bottom of the felt flower with hot glue and fold the circle part of the end of the spiral strip down on the glue. Cut any excess felt if you have any.
And this is how your flower should look. So easy, huh?!
Do the same thing to the other spiral to make two flowers.
Now make a rectangle piece of felt and in the middle make a little hole. You can do this by folding it in half and cutting it with your scissors a little bit. Then open the clip and slide the top of the clip through the hole.
Take the two leaves and glue them together.
Now take your felt clip, leaves, and two flowers and put them together. Play with it a little to see how you like it. In this picture nothing is glued, just placed together.
Once you know how you want it, glue the pieces down.
Then cut the excess felt off from around the clip.
You can also glue the leaves and flowers to the felt and then cut around the excess. Then do the same thing with the clip and felt, but cut it down to the size of the flower cluster you have made and glue together. The way I did it can cut down on the bulk of the felt. But either way is cute!
Isn’t it cute!!
Now let’s add some bling.
Put a little dab of glue in the center of the flowers and add your faux pearls. I love the added detail they bring to these cute flowers!
These cute flowers are perfect for hair accessories, crafting, wreaths, pillows, and so much more! Have fun making them!
Thank you Shirley! I love these sweet flowers, and their simplicity! They are easy and quick to make, require hardly any supplies, and they look amazing when they are all done! Looking at a flower like this online or in the store, I would assume it was time consuming and a little difficult to get a finished look like that…but now we all know just how simple they are! I can’t wait to make a whole bunch for my sweet little girl! I think I just might have to make a fall inspired one for my favorite jacket I will be pulling out very soon as fall is just around the corner!
