fold the cutouts from the felt flower template and glue in place


3. Now cut out the base of the flower using the template – cut out of green felt.


4. Fold this piece into a cone shape as well and glue shut.


5. Put your straw through the center hole in the base piece and glue it in place. It should sit below the top of your straw, a bit higher than the height of the cones you created in step 2.


6. Take the petal pieces and glue them onto the green felt cone.


Continue gluing all the petal pieces around the straw into the green cone, until you are complete, and you have a space with the straw tip in the center.


7. Take a small strip of coordinating felt. Cut some fringe into it, keeping your spacing even, and making sure not to cut to close to the bottom.


8. Roll the felt strip and glue it to keep the roll secured. Then glue it on the center of the petals over the straw.


9. Now cut out some leaves using the felt flower template, and attach them to the bottom of the flower.


Your felt flowers are complete! Use the same felt flower template to make a few in different colors, and gather them together in a bouquet!
