How to make Felt Flowers Easy and Cute

This is kind 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 flowers with your own twist. That’s what I love the most about these flowers and about handmade, imperfections make things perfect and unique.

MY LATEST VIDEOS!

These flowers have a purpose, I made them to put them on a cute Spring Rustic Wreath, so stay tuned because you’ll see it in my next post.

So, are you ready to make some really cute felt flowers?

Supplies:

  • Felt different colors
  • Hot glue gun
  • Pencil and scissors
  • Round shaped guide (I used dishes LOL)

Check out the video tutorial 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: No center and marking it with a pencil.

Start by tracing and cutting a 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, 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.

Cut any leftover from the back cover.

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

You can make variations of this flower. You can 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: with a center:

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).

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.

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.

Cut any leftover from the back cover if needed.

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

I made another in white with a smaller purple center.

Fluffy felt flower:

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).

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 in different angles.

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).

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.

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.

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 Felt Flowers so very much!

Finally let’s make the 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 a cardboard or another piece of the green felt glue the flowers and leaves as you like them best. Imagination is the limit for your composition and color combinations.

In my case, I made them to decorate my Rustic Spring Wreath which is coming soon to the blog!
