Felt Flower Tutorial

I love making things out of felt! It's so easy to work with because it practically holds itself together as you go, and there are so many pretty colors that the possibilities are nearly endless!

Today I thought I'd offer you a felt flower tutorial for these little beauties:

What can you do with them? I think they would make a darling headband for a little girl-- in any color or combination of colors-- or perhaps one or two would make a nice brooch for a cardigan or a wool coat. Another idea is a yearn wreath. I have seen these wreaths becoming more and more popular, and I think I'm going to try my hand at creating a spring wreath... perhaps something like one of these:

I think they're so pretty, and just perfect for spring! Those wreaths are from an Etsy seller called Anna Hailey.

Moral of the story, there's lots you can do with a felt flower!

So on to the tutorial!

  • Hot glue gun
  • Green felt
  • Yellow felt
  • Any other color that you like for the flower petals
  • Scissors


Aren't they cute! I can't wait to experiment with making a felt wreath... possibly using this style of flowers. If you make one (or more!) of these, tell me what you did with it, and how your project turned out!



  1. Thank you! Thank you! I saw your other creations on etsy and I was going to call you and talk to you about showing me how you make your creations! I am planning to give these to the girls as birthday presents. So off I go now to create! Thank you and I miss you!

  2. Thanks for that. It's so well described. I might use it for a brooch.
    Now following you from SB...and on etsy

  3. This is such a fantastic tutorial. I've been really struggling with writing patterns and directions. You do a really wonderful job. Thanks!


  4. So cute! Love the yellow pop in the middle! I will definitely have to try this!
