Felt Rolled flowers … {and unfinished wreath}

Soo I posted this picture (from instagram) on facebook last week and have gotten several requests for the rolled flowers tutorial.

That was going to be a wreath for Christmas with felt poinsettias added on, but I didn’t get around to finishing it. Oh well…maybe next year! ;)

These felt rolled flowers are so simple to make! There are so many fun colors to choose from as well. Trust me … you’ll be addicted!

Steps:

1. Cut out your circles. The bigger the circle…. the bigger the flower. Just experiment with sizes.

2. Start cutting a swirl (at an angle) all the way to the center of the circle.

3. Once you have your swirly {yes swirly} grab the very center and start rolling in the flower, gluing as you go. Watch out for your fingers! ;)

4. I usually add leaves with these flowers as well. Cut out a leaf shape, pinch the center and thread a knot through.

That’s all! These are so simple to make. However if you’re thinking about covering a whole wreath with them, it’s going to take you awhile. Fair warning! ;)

Much simpler to add them to a gift or headband! :)

    I have attempted to make felt flowers before and they just didn’t turn out right. But seeing this, I think its a sign so I’m going to try it again.

    I love making these flowers!! They are so easy, but yes, can get kinda boring after you’ve rolled 100 of them!! LOL! But in the end it will be a beautiful wreath!!!

    Gorgeous! So I assume for bigger flowers, you do bigger circles. How large a circle are your larger flowers?
