easy felt flowers {tutorial}

One day I decided I was going to make up some felt flowers. I sat down at the table with some felt, a pair of scissors, and my glue gun. This is what I came up with.....



Let's get started!



1. Gather your supplies...



2. Cut out 6 circles that are roughly the same size...



3. One of your circles will be the base of the flower. Take another circle & fold it in half, and then in half again...



4. Add a little line of hot glue...


5. Then add your folded circle, folded edge down. Press down slightly to make sure it's attached enough...


6. Attach another circle the same way, but on the opposite side...


7. Then add the 3rd and 4th circles to fill in the spaces...


8. Let your flower puff out a bit...


9. Pinch the last circle in the middle and use a dab of glue to attach it to the centre of your flower...


10. Use a few dabs of glue to make the petals stay together the way you want...


11. Then repeat and make some more! These are terribly simple and quick to make. And you can add then to just about anything!!


Happy creating!

  12. Those turned out really cute! I love flowers from felt or fabric! It's funny, I made some almost the same way, but turned them differently when I glued them down and it's a totally different look.
    I'd love for you to link up here:
