Looking for easy daisy flower craft ideas? Learn how to make felt daisies with this adorable, beginner-friendly rolled felt daisy flower tutorial and FREE SVG or PDF template files you can cut by hand or with a cutting machine like Cricut Maker!
This super easy felt daisy only takes a few minutes to make, and it’s so darling!
Like most of my felt flower patterns, this one can be cut out by hand or with a Cricut machine.
The Cricut Maker is specifically made to cut felt with its rotary blade. Trust me, if making felt flowers is your thing, you definitely want to invest in the Cricut Maker! It’s just makes cutting felt (and various other mediums) so much more quick and easy.
This DIY daisy uses a rolled flower pattern, but I had to modify it a little to make it the way I wanted it (after cutting). When I began rolling it, the petals were stacking on top of each other leaving gaps between them. This is why I had to modify it a little.
You’ll see what I’m talking about below.
Now on to the good stuff!

How to Make a Felt Daisy Step-by-Step (with Photos)
This pattern comes in 2 parts, the middle of the flower and the petals. First we will work on the middle of the flower.
Use the file titled “Middle of Flower” and cut out with your preferred method. You don’t want to make this too small, even though we will only use a small part of it in the flower.
When I tried to resize this pattern to make it smaller, it was too small for my Cricut to cut the little petals and pretty much cut through them. Instead, resize the pattern down some, and only use a short length of it to roll the middle section.
If you are using a Cricut to cut out your pattern, upload the SVG file into Design Space. You can adjust the size of the pattern by clicking and dragging the lower right corner. Depending on what you want to use your felt flower for, you might want a bigger or smaller flower.
Use your yellow sheet of felt with the pink fabric mat (for the Cricut Maker).
Click “Make It” and insert the mat into the Cricut.
Be sure to use the rotary blade (which is best for cutting felt) then press GO on your machine.
If you are using scissors, use the PDF verision of the pattern and cut out the pattern using your yellow sheet of felt.
You can also adjust the size of the pattern if you are wanting bigger or smaller flowers, you just have to adjust the Scale when you go to print.
You can use the free version of Adobe Acrobat Reader to open up the PDF file.
Click Print, then under Page, Sizing, & Handling, click Custom Scale and change the number.
Starting at the end, use a little hot glue and begin rolling the felt. If you are wanting to make a smaller felt daisy, roll the yellow piece of felt maybe 3 or 4 times and glue in place. Cut off the extra felt. Now you should have a small, yellow center for your daisy.
Next, we will move on to making the white petals of the daisy. Follow the steps above (1A and 1B) depending on your preferred cutting method to cut out the pattern. Use your sheet of white felt to cut out the petals for your daisy.
Now this is the tricky part and where I had to modify the rolled flower pattern just slightly.
With this particular pattern, if I try to roll the entire pattern, the petals begin to stack on top of each other, leaving big gaps in between.
So, how I was able to alleviate that problem was to roll the petals around the center of the flower once and glue into place. Then I cut the rest of the felt off.
Next, with the remainder of the white felt petals, add a small amount of hot glue and make a second layer of petals by gluing around the flower again.
This time be sure to stagger the petals to fill in the gaps between the petals.
Cut off the rest of the felt.
And repeat this process one more time so you have 3 layers of staggered white petals around the yellow center of the daisy.
Fluff up your petals and there you have it a super easy and super cute rolled felt daisy.
