How to Make Felt Flowers ~ Instructions
Begin to make a felt flower by cutting two 1″ strips of felt. When I first started this tutorial I also cut out a small felt circle to glue on the bottom on the felt flower. But since a small stick is hot glued on the bottom you really don’t need it.
Apply a 1/2″ bead of hot glue at one end of the felt strip then create a roll of felt. Be care with this step ~ hot glue is seriously HOT! That’s one reason I really love my Hot Glue Gun*. It has a low and high temperature setting that can save your fingertips on projects like these. It’s my favorite crafting tool!
Twist the felt around then glue then twist and… oh, let me just show you!
After following that stellar video tutorial (yeah, right! Sorry y’all it’s my very first one) you now have a sweet little rose. Don’t forget you can make the felt flower larger by adding more strips of felt.
Grab a few small sticks from the yard and hot glue them onto the back. I found this works better if you lean them against something.
Create leaves for the Valentine bouquet with green felt. Simply cut a leaf shape with pinking shears and add details with Green Fabric Paint*.
Add floral foam to a floral container and arrange you felt flowers just as if they were real. The little green leaves were tucked into the flowers throughout. No glue gun needed!
I love the vibrant colors of the Valentine’s Day bouquet and how easy it was to make. This arrangement is going to look awesome tucked into my Valentine’s Day Kitchen Hutch this year!
