How to make felt flowers - a step by step tutorial DIY with video!

 

Good morning!  I definitely feel a bit like I’m learning how to ride a bicycle again when it comes to carving out moments to write in this space.  I have a slew of photographs ready go, along with video tutorials to share.  It’s that riding a bike and working out bugs with the new site design and a combination of time …and the fact that my body requires me to at least pretend to sleep.  <– wish that wasn’t the case! But I’m working on that whole choosing-to-rest piece as well.

I digress, as I always tend to do.

I’m excited to share the first of the felt flower tutorials I’ve been creating!  I got totally hooked on making felt flowers last year when Harlow asked to have a garden party to celebrating turning five.  I spent late nights and early mornings crafting a felt crown, various bouquets to display and little flower barrettes for each of the girls attending.

Hooked, I tell you.  Absolutely hooked.

How to make felt flowers - a step by step tutorial DIY with video!

I was a bit underwhelmed with what I could find as far as tutorials go on this here world wide web of ours, so I thought I’d push myself to improve the flowers I have been making along with teaching myself how to make new varieties, all so I can share these tutorials with you!!

I’d LOVE to hear what you think as well as what flowers you’d love to see me create next.  Leave a comment with some of your favorite flowers, so I can add them to my list! I am hoping to publish a daffodil, 3 more daisy variations and an anemone in the next few weeks.  Dahlia and Gerbera daisy will be following after that.  I should have (now that I’m realizing Easter is this Sunday) done an Easter Lily…because you know, that would have been smart.  But c’est la vie.  I did not. Goals for next year, right?


First off, supplies!  These are just a few of my favorite things when it comes to felt flower making:

This first flower isn’t as much of an actual flower, but more of a good foundation for how these flowers are made.  I hope you enjoy!
