Felt Flowers {Tutorials}

After many of you asked for more fabric flower tutorials after the THIS one, 
I thought I'd share with you some methods I've used in the past for 
crafts & hair accessories.
They may be similar to other tutorials out there, I'm not sure, but these are ones I used after studying some pretty felt flowers I've seen online.

All you'll need for these is felt, scissors and a hot glue gun.

Rolled Felt Rosette Tutorial (3D version)
  1. Cut out a circle in your felt.
  2. Cut out a spiral 
  3. Starting from the tail end (outer spiral) begin rolling and gluing
  4. The front should look like this
  5. The center of the spiral will work as your backing. Trimming may be necessary to round it out.
  6. Done!

 Birthday Bow Felt Flower Tutorial

  1. Cut a long strip of fabric (the longer the strip the larger the flower)
  2. Fold it in half
  3. Secure with glue on the edges of the strip only, leaving an open "loop" down the strip.
  4. Cut out every 1/2" (more or less) down the strip's loop side
  5. Roll & secure with glue
  6. Done!

In the photo above you see two other types of flowers.
The black one is a simple strip of felt, rolled & glued.

The Dark Pink Spikey flower is done with the SAME METHOD as the Birthday Bow Felt Flower Tutorial shown above, but instead of leaving a loop in the folded fabric, cut it before rolling & gluing.

That's it!
they are so much easier than they appear.
I hope maybe you'll go over here and find some great inspiration on how to use these in projects on wreaths!
