A friend of mine commented on how much she loved these yarn wreaths and wanted to know how to make the felt flowers. Instead of just telling her how to make them, I thought I'd "show" her (and anyone else who might be interested), right here on the blog. I did just "wing it" when making these - there's probably another way to make them, but this is what worked for me. Here's what you'll need:
|glue gun, scissors, felt circles|
I start out by cutting each of the felt circles that I'll be using in half. I run a line of glue along the cut edge and then wrap it around itself. Like so:
|one small "petal" starts the flower|
Now, for the mid-sized and largest circle halves, I have to trim a bit off otherwise the petals are too deep and they tend to look a bit "over-grown", looking silly against the smaller "petals".
|trim about this much|
|mid sized "petals" glued on|
|largest "petals" added - finished flower|
