Felt Flower

Here's a really simple way to make these fun felt flowers you can clip to your hair or pin to your favorite sweater or coat.

All you need is:
  • a flower cookie cutter
  • a piece of paper
  • a straight pin
  • a sheet of felt
  • a stapler
  • a hot glue gun
  • an alligator clip
  • a pin to pin the flower to your clothes
Get a flower shaped cookie cutter and trace around the edges.

Cut out the flower and use it as a pattern to cut out 6 felt flowers.

Be sure to save a few of the long pieces left over. I usually end up with 3. One longer than the other two.

Take 4 your flower cut outs one by one and fold them in half twice.

Next, staple the flower toward the pointy edge.

Do that with 4 of the flower cut outs.

Next, take the remaining 2 flower cut outs. Fold them the same way, but staple closer to the middle.
Take the 2 folded and stapled cut outs and cut off the pointy edge.

Take your longest left over piece and make it into a scalloped edge. It does not have to be perfect. I think it's cuter if it's not. :)

Roll it up.
Like this... AND staple it!

This is what you should have. 2 rectangle pieces, 2 folded with points cut off, 2 folded with points and one rolled up piece.

Clean up the edges of one of your rectangle pieces and begin to place the pointy ended flowers on the rectangle. Hot glue them in place.

Next, take your two pieces with the points cut off and glue the ends on top of the previous 4. Glue them upright and more toward the center. This will help the flower start to be rounded and full.

Next, take your rolled up piece and glue it right in the middle of the previous two. It should be in the center of the flower. You should have a beautiful little flower.

Take your last rectangle piece and clean up the edges. Prepare your clip and your pin to be glued between the felt rectangle and your flower.

Drag a strip of glue down the back of the flower.

Attach your last rectangle strip to the flower with the pin and clip.

Wa-la! Done!
You can wear this beautiful flower in your hair or you can pin it to your clothes. Very versatile and fun!
