How to ~ Felt flower.

So as promised I am posting a tutorial of how too make a simple felt flower. These are really quick, cute and simple and can be used for loads of craft projects.

First of all you will need
*felt
*hotglue gun
*scissors
*flower template (mine is from hobbycraft)
*button
*pin

Step one

Line your template up and pin to the felt. Remember you we need to get at least 6 flower shapes from your piece of felt.

Step two

Cut out the flower template shape from the felt.

You will need to do this at least 6 times, depending on how full you would like the finished flower to look.

Step three

Once you have the required amount of flowers you would like take the 1st flower felt piece and put a tiny dab of hot glue in the center and fold in half, pressing down firmly. Then put another tiny dab in the centre of the folded half and fold again to make a petal.

Repeat these process with all the felt pieces you have cut out.

Step four

Out of some of the left over felt cut a small circle that will be used as the base for the flower. Put a large dab of glue in the center of the circle and place the “petals” with the point inwards. 4 will make a good base, then place another 2 on top. The flower will look nice a full by this stage.

Step 5

Take the button and glue in the centre of the flower to finish it off.

These little flowers can now be used in all different types of craft projects. I will be attaching mine to a babies headband.

Hope you enjoyed :0)

It’s been far too long….

My blog has taken a back seat for far too long, and too be totally honest so has the crafting.

In august we found out that our little family was growing by one :0) so along with looking after my little man I struggled with early pregnancy. As the weeks went on I just lost my grove.

I am please to say that over the last few weeks I have got the craft stuff back out (thanks to Xmas) and got my mojo back.

I have just finished making a couple of tea cup candles for little man’s teachers Xmas gifts..

And a few weeks ago made some lovely little felt flowers for hair bands, for a special little girl.

Thinking of doing a tutorial for the flower, they were so easy to make and I think they look gorgeous, I already have a tutorial for the candles :0)

I will try not to leave it so long next time ;0)
