This is a great way to try out making felt flowers and see if it’s something that interests you before making the plunge and purchasing a Cricut machine.
Most felt flower patterns don’t require a Cricut machine, but it sure makes it easier when it comes to cutting those patterns out. Some felt flower templates such as the rolled patterns have very small, intricate cuts that can get very tedious if you are cutting them out by hand. That’s where having a Cricut that can cut felt comes in handy. It saves you time and your sanity!
However, this tutorial doesn’t even call for a pattern. Just grab some felt, scissors and your hot glue gun and start making these adorable felt flowers right away!
Let’s get started!
Materials Needed to Make Rolled Felt Flowers
- 1 sheet of felt for petals (any color)
- 1 sheet of green felt for leaves
- Hot glue gun
Easy Rolled Felt Flower Tutorial
First, cut a long strip of your colored felt that you are using for the petals. Depending on how big you want your flower to turn out.
For this flower I used a 1.5″ x 5″ strip of felt.
Next, run a bead of hot glue lengthwise along one side of the felt and fold the felt in half along the hot glue.
Next, make small cuts along the folded side of the felt. Do this along the whole length of the felt.
Now it’s time to start rolling your flower. As you start rolling the flower, use a small amount of glue along the bottom of the petals to hold it in place.
Continue gluing and rolling until the entire flower is done.
Lastly, with your piece of green felt, cut out a couple of leaves freehand and glue them together. Glue the leaves to the side of your flower, covering up where the felt stopped.
Fluff up your petals and now you’re done!
Now that you know how to make this basic flower you can use them to try out this Felt Flower Mini Wreath project. Check out the tutorial here.
