Hey there, purdy lady. I have a fun little tutorial for you. Remember my felt rosette tutorial from a while back? The one where I said to cut a spiral in the felt and roll it up like a sleeping bag? Well, this flower is basically the same…
- Glue gun
Cut a decent sized square of felt.
Cut a spiral with a scalloped edge. Trust me, it seems harder than it really is.
Take the outside edge of the spiral and start rolling it up tightly. Dab glue along the inside edge as your rolling to hold all the layers in place. If you need a better explanation, see the simpler rosette tutorial.
Finish the flower with a nice little dab of glue and voila!
Now if you want to make a larger flower, just repeat the process. Cut a new spiral with a scalloped edge, but instead of rolling it into it’s own flower, glue the outside edge to your first flower and continue rolling. I sure hope that makes sense… brain is hurty after a long day.
Here’s a single, double and triple sized. I was about to seriously carried away with the large one and had to reel myself in before it ended up being the size of my face.
You could technically start with a larger square of felt to end up with a larger flower, but sometimes I like to make things difficult for no reason at all, sooooooo. Yeah. It works for me to do it this way though!
And this is what it looks like when you start making a bunch of random flowers for a wreath, but don’t have a wreath to put them on. Hair clips, perhaps?
