These kinds of flowers are super easy to make. There are so many ways and so different techniques that I hope my way makes it a little bit easy for you. You don’t need to be a pro crafter to make these. Just need I few supplies and your hands.

Imagination is the limit, so you don’t need to stick with what I say, or how I do it.

You can vary each type of flower with your own twist. That’s what I love the most about these flowers and about handmade, imperfections make things perfect and unique.

These diy felt flowers have a purpose, I made them to put them on a cute Spring Rustic felt flower Wreath, so you can take a look. It turned out so cute! But these could be used on headbands, hair clips, felt flower bouquets, garlands, and so much more. Creativity is the limit.

This cute project doesn’t involve sewing or stitching or any fancy tool. Just felt, glue, and your hands!

How to make felt flowers

I’ve always loved felt. It’s easy to work with, fairly inexpensive, and comes in so many different colors. One of my favorite things to make out of felting flowers. Like I said earlier, you can hot glue them to a brooch, hair clip or headband for a quick and easy hair accessory, use as a gift topper, or just give them as is.

My daughter and I get really excited over a few hand-made blossoms. Today, I’ll show you how to make the three kinds of felt flowers.

Supplies:

  • Felt different colors
  • Hot glue gun
  • A pencil and a pair of scissors
  • Round shaped guide (for perfect circles. I used a dish LOL)

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Check out the video tutorial for this fun project I prepared for you. However, if you are more of a read-and-see photos kind of person, then just scroll down and keep reading.

Rosette 1: Simple 1 color.

Start by tracing and cutting a felt circle. I used a soup dish as a guide. LOL.

Then with a pen trace a spiral from the edge towards the center.

Cut the spiral.

Starting at the outer end of the felt strip, fold the tip inwards and roll it securing it well, you can use hot glue if you want to make sure it’s secure.

Start rolling up from the folded end.

Place the rolled end upside down between your thumb and middle finger, roll it till the whole flower is formed.

Once your flower is rolled and ready, apply a generous amount of glue to the back and affix the small circle that you got at the inner end. Press them together well.

There you go! You won’t get anything easier than this!

You can make variations of this flower. Wave along the edge of the circle and then the spiral to create a more Rose look.

Or you can also add a cute center to your rosette… or do both LOL.

Rossette 2: Adding a cute center and 2 colors

Repeat the 2 first steps from the previous rosette but this time let’s try making the spiral without tracing it with the pencil.

Then cut a piece of felt 1 1/4” wide by any length (depending on how big you want your flower, I used 6-Inches).

folding a strip of white felt

Fold it in half lengthwise.

Cut little slits into the folded part of the felt.

You can create different effects on this part by varying how wide you cut the slits.

Roll your flower center up from one end (you can glue it along the way) till you like the size of the center.

Then cut out the tip of the outer end, insert it between the folded end of your center and roll it securing it well between your fingers. You can use hot glue if you want to make sure it’s secure.

Place the rolled end upside down between your thumb and middle finger, roll it till the whole flower is formed.

There you go!!!! I’m loving how this turned out.

Rosette number 2 finished

I made another in white with a smaller purple center.

Making Yellow Daisy:

I made my own version of a daisy. White center, yellow petals. You can create them in any way you love.

Cut a piece of felt 3 1/4” wide by any length (depending on how big you want your flower, I used 25-Inches long).

Cutting a long strip of yellow felt

Fold it in half lengthwise.

Cut little slits into the folded part of the felt towards the edge.

Here again, you can create different effects on this part by varying how wide you cut the slits or even cut the slits at different angles for the petal shapes.

Repeat this process with a piece of felt 1 1/4” wide by any length (depending on how big you want your center, I used 5-Inches long).

Cutting little slits into the folded shorter white felt

Roll your center up from one end (you can glue it along the way if you feel more comfortable) till you like the size or until the end.

Once you are happy with the size, glue the end to make sure it stays.

hot glue the end of the white felt

Right where the center ends, start rolling your flower up from one end and aligned to the base of the center until you are satisfied with the size or until the end of your piece.

Glue the end to secure it.

Cut a circle of felt large enough to cover the back of your flower.

cutting a small felt circle

Apply a generous amount of glue to the back and affix the circle. Press them together well.

There you go! Aren’t these so CUTE??? Loving my beautiful Felt Flowers so very much!

With this method, if you remove the white center and change the color you could get felt carnations or felt chrysanthemums.

This is why I love felt flowers so much!

Making the felt leaves.

Take a piece of green felt and hand-draw 2 curvy lines one against the other making sure the ends meet. On one of the ends make a small shape of a twig.

Draw and cut a few of these.

Using cardboard or another piece of green felt attach in a bunch of flowers and leaves as you like the best. Imagination is the limit for your composition and color combinations of a cute bouquet.

In my case, I made them to decorate my Rustic Spring Wreath which you can check out right here!
