It’s a Felt Flower Fiesta!! (with a step-by-step tutorial)

Okay.
I. am. obsessed.


But it’s calorie free…
and I can drive after I do it so,
it’s all good!
Right?
It’s a Felt Flower Fiesta!

 

It all started when
I tried my hand at making a few
flowers to embellish my Valentine Mantle.
Well…
That was all it took…
I was hooked!
These are the sweetest little things.
They are so Cute
&
Easy to make.
~What a Perfect Combo~
(trio actually, they are CHEAP too)
I Love Them.

I have played around a bit
and I have made three different styles now.
The original “Rose” shape,
a pretty pink flower with “Petals”,
and a zingy “Mum”.
Come on girls…
~Grab Some Felt, Scissors & Glue~
Lets make something!!
Below are Steps 1, 2, 3 & 4.
The larger the felt, the larger the flower.
If you use the 9 x 6 piece (without further cutting) you will get the flower shown at the end of the photos.


Step #5

Step #6

Step #7

Step #8



Next, add glue and get rolling!


 

 

Once You Reach The End
The Flower Is Complete!
{and I just realized I need a manicure. STAT}
Yep, It’s THAT Easy
If you use the “remaining” 1/4 piece of felt,
you get a lil’ mini~mum like this.

 

If you want to finish the back, I’ll show you an easy way to do that too!

After gluing on a felt square. Begin by holding the bottom scissor blade upright and flat against the base of the flower and following the curve all the way around. It makes a perfect cut.

{and a tiny leaf too!}
Hope you enjoyed
stopping by to “smell” the flowers ;)
Stop Back Soon!

    I’m alway’s on the hunt for fun easy stuff to do with my girls (daughters and neices) this is perfect! Also I am going to highlight all the local crafty/decor FB pages and blog’s that I love that are local here in Coos Bay/North Bend and you will be one of them!! You can see the post on my FB page Josie’s attic. :)

    I am in love with all of these flowers! Thank you for the tutorial! I’m curious – what type of felt did you use? That might be a dumb question, but I know that there is the cheapie stuff at Hobby Lobby, Michaels, etc. and then there’s more expensive felt… I wondered if it made a difference since I have a buttload of the cheap stuff I sure hope not! :) (Love the pool noodle wreath too! That’s how I came here originally!)

    I just saw your pool wreath tutorial which is great! but I needed to check the flower tutorial too! Thanks Shannon! I’m going to give them a try!

    These look fantastic! I keep seeing those mums and really wanting to make some, but didn’t know how; thanks for the great, clear tutorial! So glad you entered One Crafty Contest!

    I’m so excited! I think this is a craft I can actually do! Time to break out my hot glue gun and visit Joann’s!! My son recently moved to NC (I’m in Virginia) and vacated two bedrooms, an upstairs den and a bathroom. That upstairs den is turning more into my sewing room every day – just a few more boxes and it will be ready for paint! Hurry up with the next post!!!! Thanks so much Shannon – I really enjoy your blog!

    I love these flowers – cute and so easy! I’ll definitely be back for the petal flower tutorial. I’d love to make a bunch of these for my nursery. Thanks for sharing!

    You are becoming queen of tutorials! I already knew how to make the roses in your last post, which by the way, sent me into a rose making frenzy. I copied you and made them in pink, red & cream using every spare minute I had. See what you do to me? lol

    I didn’t know how to make the mums, so now I know I’ll have to try these too. Thanks for being a troublemaker! :D

    yay a SIESTA!!!! oh wait? you said FIESTA!! I guess I will stay awake for this!! They are so cute! I have not been this excited to buy felt since I was a kid. I can see even doing some fun orange colored ones for the summer and easter…..OHHH you got me started on something. Can’t wait to see how to make the rest.
    Have a BEAUTIFUL day.
