HOW TO MAKE PRETTY FELT BLOSSOMS!

MATERIALS : a pencil, scrap paper, felt, sharp scissors, hot glue

  1. first i recommend making some kind of pattern. it’s hard to free hand a relatively symmetrical 5 petaled flower with your scissors, and you don’t really want to draw on the felt. also, warm up your hot glue gun.
  2. next cut 6 of your flower shapes (i followed this tutorial which uses 7, but i think 6 works fine) and one circle for each flower you want to make.
  3. fold your petal twice, once in half 
  4. and then half again… it is no longer symmetrical. and that is okay!
  5. snip off the bottom corner of the folded felt.
  6. apply hot glue to the now flat folded bottom of the felt.
  7. stick the folded felt to your already cut circle, near the edge, and hold it there for at least 30 seconds so that it sets!
  8. repeat this with your second flower shape so that you have half of your blossom glued.
  9. attach two more flower shapes (repeat steps 3-7) for a total of 4 
  10. attach the final two flower shapes in the center of your blossom and TA DA! it’s done!

now, to make the garlands all i did was lay out a piece of thick yarn and place the blossoms where i liked them, then i just hot glued the yarn across the back of each blossom! (check out my other post here to see what it looked like while i laid out the yarn and blossoms) YAY FELT!
