Sorry it has been such a long, long time that I have come up with any new tutorials. Lets just say life and family things got busy…but it is a new year and I want to start it off good. What better way to start off then with an easy felt flower tutorial? I love felt and flowers so here we go.
Hot glue gun
1/8 of a yard felt
- Print out the pattern below. (Use the scale to make sure the print out is the correct size). Cut the felt so you have 4 of each size petal. NOTE: you can make a larger or smaller flower by increasing or decreasing the number of petals.
- Starting with one of the small petals, glue a line along the bottom straight edge of the petal. Roll the petal into a tube like shape, this creates the center of your flower.
- Take another small petal and glue along the bottom, wrap this petal around the first petal roll you just made.
- Play with the outside larger petals, folding and creasing them to give them a rose petal shape.
To Assemble a cluster brooch
If you would like to make the three flower cluster brooch seen above you will need a few more supplies:
- 1″ pin
- Felt in 2 other colors
I made two flowers using the exact directions above and one smaller flower. For the smaller flower instead of cutting 4-petals in each size only cut and use 3-petals. I mounted the flowers on a felt triangle that I cut to fit behind the flowers and I glued the pin to the back using hot glue.
