I received several emails asking me how I made the brown flowers on my Fall Wreath. Sorry for the delay, but I’m finally posting the tutorial on how to make them.
I’m going to show you two ways to make these. I’ve placed them side by side to show you how each flower will turn out depending on the method you use.
First take your felt and cut it into strips about 1.5inches wide. I didn’t use the 8.5X11 felt sheets for the yellow one. The strip for my yellow flower was approximately 1.5in wide by 20in long.
Fold it in half and glue the corner together
Then cut slits half way down the folded strip.
For the yellow flower all you’re basically doing is rolling and gluing as you go.
Then for the cream flower cut out a felt circle and glue your strip onto it.
I forgot to take a picture of the next step. But at this point you just grab your second strip that’s already been cut and start where you left off. Continue to go around the circle until you get to the center (cut off any excess).
As you can see there’s quite a difference in shape depending on which method you use. I personally like the messy feel the yellow flower has. I’m thinking these are going to make great Christmas present bows this year.
I hope you found this Flower Tutorial helpful. Let me know if you have any questions :)

Featuring you and these fab felt flowers on my blog today!!
wow…simply gorgeous… thks 4 the tutorial
I made some yarn wreaths with flowers like this last year and love them! I posted about the wreaths that I’ve made on my blog today and wanted to let you know that I linked to the tutorial for this flower =)
Spectacular – I love the free-form-ness of this flower! I made mine in smaller versions using just one peice and a regular small sheet of felt…they turned out great. I’ll have to try the larger ones sometime though. My resulting Valentine’s Wreath is up on my blog at https://greasegirlgetscrafty.wordpress.com/2013/02/12/valentines-day-wreath/.
Thanks for the tutorial!
