One of the most gratifying feelings I experience when crafting is to take an inexpensive supply and transform it into something truly beautiful. Felt flowers are some of my favorite projects for doing just that! My method for making felt roses is quick and easy enough for beginners, but it produces results so pretty, you’ll want to make an entire rose garden! And the best part? They require absolutely no sewing! These felt roses are perfect for adorning anything from wearable items to home decor projects. Let me show you how they come together, with just a few basic supplies.
- Felt in the color of your choice
- Hot glue gun
step 2 / Take one of your centers, and apply a line of hot glue at the base, as shown. Adhere one of your petals with this line of glue, as shown, making sure the bottom of the petal is flush with the bottom of your rolled center. Now, apply another line of hot glue at the base of your flower between the two outer edges of your first petal, and adhere another petal as you did before. You will continue applying your petals in this same staggered manner until your flower is the desired fullness. Repeat this step until you have completed your desired number of roses.
You are finished!
Add a pin back to a flower to create a lovely brooch, or use the flowers to accent anything from throw pillows to wreaths. The options for these beauties are limitless!
