Join me for another Miniatuer Felt Flower Tutorial! This one also includes a FREE pattern download. I designed this flower to be used in the background of my Peter Rabbit Play Set. I love the easy pop of color it provides as well as giving the garden a bit of height, which was definitely a nice touch.
To work through this MIniature Felt Flower Tutorial, you’ll need:
- Wool Felt in Green and whatever color you want to use for your flower. (I used orange)
- Floral Wire
- Free Pattern (Click to download)
- Hot Glue Gun
- Fabric Stabilizer spray (optional)
1. Cutting out your Miniature Felt Flower
Once you print out your Free Pattern, you can cut out the leaves from some green wool felt. Be sure to keep the leaves in one long strip. If desired, you can now spray the leaves with Fabric Stabilizer and allow to dry flat while you work on the other parts of the flower. This will help your leaves stand up straighter, but is not necessary.
You will also need to cut a rectangle of felt in the color of your flowers. The rectangle should measure about 1/2″ x 6″.
2. Making the Flowers
Take your rectangle of felt and cut mini notches all along one side, as shown.
Cut your floral wire into 2 pieces, each about 3 inches long. (I was making several flowers when I took this photo, so that’s why I cut more than 2.)
Using hot glue to secure, slowly wrap the felt rectangle around the top 1 inch of the wire, spiraling down as you go. Secure and with hot glue and trim.
Repeat to make a second flower with the second wire piece.
3. Putting it all together
Now we’ll attach the flowers to the leaves. If you’ve sprayed your leaves with stabilizer, you want to make sure they are dry before starting this step. (You can use a bloe drier to speed up dry time if needed.)
Take your two flowers and wrap them with one end of the leaf piece. Make sure that the bottom wires of the flowers are sticking out a little bit at the bottom. Glue the folded felt in place.
Fold the bottom of the wires up and secure with hot glue. This will make sure your flowers stay securely attached to your leaves. Now roll the leaves around the flowers, about 1 inch at a time. Add a bit of hot glue, roll and pinch to give the leave a little shape. Once the hot glue cools, add a bit more and repeat the process. Continue until the leaves are wrapped all the way around.
