I love felt flowers for a few reasons: they tend to be more durable than paper flowers (you can find paper flower templates here.) Using a template to make your own is the perfect way to learn, and once you do, you’ll be able to make your own felt flower templates!
I originally created this tutorial for Beyond the Balagan for the Jewish holiday of Shavuot where homes are traditionally decorated with florals, to commemorate Mt. Sinai which became beautiful with flowers and greenery in honor of it having been chosen as the site where the Torah was handed down to us by Moses.
Since felt flowers are beautiful for anyone to create all year round, I figured it’s worth sharing here too, along with a bonus video so that you can see it in action!
I highly recommend that you read the tutorial (you’ll need to visit Beyond the Balagan to get the template regardless) since there was some trial and error (for example, on the purple flower, I had to glue between the petals to get them to sit where I wanted them to.)
These simple felt flowers can be made by teens and tweens, however since it uses a hot glue gun, you might want to avoid doing it with kids – or give it a go with a kid-safe alternative.
They can be placed in a vase with filler year-round, turned into brooches using a flat pad safety pin, glued to the tops of pens, or turned into whatever you’d like. Enjoy!
