Today I am sharing a few samples of flowers made with felt.
Whether your crafting with children or adults, you’ll love playing with felt. Its an easy material, which is quite forgiving. Unlike paper, its not very thin, and unlike fabric, its not very fluid. It can hold its shape well and can be adhered easily, with just a dab or two, of glue.
There are several tutorials available on Youtube to demonstrate how to make different types of flowers with felt. Since I was designing a few, I took a few pictures.
Once you cut out the large circle, start cutting the inside border like so
Once you roll the flower to the end, add some hot glue to the base of the flower, and adhere the rolled up flower to the base. I could not take a photo of that. ( I would need three arms to do so !)
Attach two green leaves to the back of the base and voila ! Here you have it.
Kids love to craft with felt. Something about the texture and bright colors, really attracts little ones.
In addition to the bookmark and necklace, I have used felt to design flowers for hair accessories, jewelry like brooches and journal covering, in the past.
So, have you crafted with felt, ever ?
I am sharing this simple project with my blog buddies here .
I’m delighted that you stopped by. I hope you stay a while and leave inspired.

I love making felt flowers, I’ve even done them with old jumpers that had a hot wash by mistake! Yours are all lovely, it’s fun to experiment isn’t it?
