Quite a while ago , I pinned these cute little guys ~
I've read several tutorials on making felt flowers.
Mums, daisies and roses .
I have a couple projects that I'm working on that i thought felt flowers would compliment.
So I set out to create my own.
First , I want to say they are super easy to make.
I did burn my fingers a few times , but that happens every time I use a glue gun ( which is why I try not to use it often )
You start but cutting a LOT of circles out of felt.
The size of the circles depends on the size you want your flowers to be.
I used two different size bowls and a vitamin bottle for the three different sizes I made.
The two larger ones I made felt roses with.
I'll explain that process first.
Once you get you circles cut . You are going to cut them in a spiral.
Like a snail shell ( get what I mean?).
Then you can either start from the outside and roll them up, dabbing a bit of hot glue every now and then to secure it.
If you roll from the outside in , you will get a tighter , taller rose.
If you roll from the inside out , you will get a very open rose, in my experience the open on needed more dabs of glue to keep it formed correctly.
The yellow one on the right is an example of rolling from the inside out.
I didn't really like these as well ,so I glued one of the tighter roses in the center and made one large rose.
The second type of flower I made is more like the pinned image.
Some tutorials call them a felt mum.
This is what you do .
Cut several smaller circles ( this is where I used the vitamin bottle as a template).
Put a dab of glue in the center of the circle.
Fold it and hold a second.
Put another dab in the center of that and fold again.
Basically you have folded it in half twice and secured it with glue.
