I thought I would share how to make felt flowers for the second day of our Cricut Flowers event. This is an easy craft project and you can use DIY felt flowers in so many ways. I am putting them on a wreath but you can also add them to hair barrettes and more! If you have never made these rolled felt flowers, you are in for a treat! They are so easy and oh so cute! You will also want to scroll down to the bottom of this post as we have more flower ideas with your Cricut machine as well as a BIG giveaway that you don’t want to miss.

How to Make Felt Flowers:
First, you will need to cut both the flowers and leaves with your Cricut machine. I have more information on cutting felt with your Cricut here. I have the files designed to fill up one 12 x 12 sheet of felt. You can change the size of these and remove some of the pieces if you would like before cutting. NOTE: I like to change my Cricut Maker to the rotary blade before cutting this felt as I get better cuts.
Remove the pieces from your mat. Felt can make a mess on your mat so be sure to see our tricks for cleaning your Cricut mats here.
The rolled felt flowers are these spiral-shaped pieces (shown below).
Start at the end (not in the middle) and begin rolling the felt up.
Continue all the way around the flower. The scallops will become the flower petals. Stop once you get to the center. The large circle that is in the center is how you secure the flower. Just add a dollop of hot glue and press the bottom of the flower to the disc. You can use more hot glue on the bottom around the outer edge if needed.
We also have flat felt flowers on these mats. You can stack these and use hot glue to secure if you wish. There are no rules with these! Just have fun with them!
Now, I had an embroidery hoop planned for this project but then I didn’t like the look of it once I started adding my felt flowers. You can use a grapevine wreath or just about anything else you have on hand.
Use the hot glue to secure felt flowers and leaves to the wreath.
Continue until you are happy with the look.
Now that you know how to make felt flowers, you can add them to tons of your craft projects.
They are so cute and now you can see just how easy they are to make.
So, how many DIY felt flowers will you make? And what will you put them on?
