How to Make Felt Flowers (Part 1 Felt Rose)

I was brainstorming recently on how to make small gifts look fun and appealing
and I came across Little Things Bring Smiles and Design Dump's felt flowers.
I was inspired to use these on gifts.
Doesn't it look adorable?
The felt flowers serve as a great way to decorate gifts for any occasion
and they weren't hard to make.
My favorite part is "no sewing involved".
1- If you want to give it a try all you will need are the following:
  • Felt (your color preference)--Here I used two colors and green for the leaf.
  • Scissors
  • A piece of chalk
  • Something to draw a circle, like a cup
  • Adhesive (I used a hot glue gun)
  • Glue sticks for glue gun
2-  Stack your two felts and trace a circle on the felt using your cup and chalk.
*(Note) I used chalk because it cleans off easily.

3- Cut the circles on the felt

4-  Layer your circles and starting at the edge, cut a spiral.
5- This will cut both circles at once.
6- Using your adhesive , secure the center of the rose which is the outside end of the spiral
and start wrapping around,
secure it with the adhesive each time you wrap both felts.
7- You will end up with a rose, glue the rounded end to the back of
the rose to keep it in place.
8- Draw a leaf by connecting two curved lines together as seen above, then cut it.
9- Glue your leaf to the rose, now you have a beautiful felt rose.
To make it look prettier
make more roses and glue them together to a larger piece of felt to form a group of two or three
as you see below.
