Ultra EASY Felt Flower Tutorial

I have a few cute sweaters that just needed a little
"POP"!
So for the Christmas season,
I made a couple Super SIMPLE felt flowers that
you can make in about 10 minutes for about 50 cents.
First, free cut about 12-15 small circles
(about 2" in diameter).
Then cut ONE bigger circle
(about 3" in diameter).
Take your hot glue gun
and glue a small amount in the middle of
EACH small flower,
pinching it in the middle to adhere the felt together.
The circles should look like the ones shown below.

So you will have every small circle glued in the center,
and the BIG circle as is.
Next, begin to hot glue a small amount around
the edge of the larger circle,
placing each smaller (scrunched) circle down.
You will glue each scrunched circle
along the entire edge of the larger circle.
Then you will continue to glue in the center of the larger circle,
until the entire large circle is filled.
Start on the outer edges and work your way into the center... Once completed, your flower should look like this.
You may have to trim the edge of the flower
so that it is even.
Once you are done with that,
hot glue a pin (that you can buy from Michaels or a craft store).
Then glue a small piece of felt over the pin's base,
leaving the pin on top.
This will secure the felt onto the pin's base.


Then find a plain 'ol sweater and place accordingly...
you choose where you need a little spice.
These pins look great on a
sweater,
shirt,
scarf,
belt,
or even to a purse!

Have fun!!!

I've just started selling eco felt. It's made from recycled plastic bottles, but it's so soft and gorgeous.

I'm starting a blog giving readers ideas on how to use the felt. YOU'RE MY FIRST POST! Thank you for the fun and unintimidating tutorial.
