Easy Felt Roses

Make several of these darling little roses and use them as a fashion accessory, gift wrap, or table decor! Have fun making flowers of different sizes. In my experience, a 4.25″ circle produced a 2″ rose; a 2.5″ circle produced a 1″ rose; and 2″ circle produced a 0.75″ rose.

Supplies & Tools:

  • Red Felt
  • Green felt
  • Dark green felt
  • Mini hot glue gun
  • Hot glue sticks
  • Scissors

 Directions:

  1. Cut out a circle about 4–5 inches in diameter. Freehand it—the circle does not need to be exact.
  2. Cut the circle into a spiral. The less perfect it is, the more unique petals you’ll have.
  3. Starting from the outside, begin rolling the felt. Use hot glue to secure as you roll the flower.
  4. Try to align the bottom edges as you continue rolling and gluing the rose.
  5. You may need to trim off the end of the felt as you finish rolling the rose.
  6. Cut green felt into crescent shaped pieces for the leaves.
  7. Glue the leaves on the outer edge of the rose, and trim if necessary.
  8. Trim any excess on the bottom of the rose so that it creates a flat surface.

Ideas from the elves:

  • Cut waves or mountains along the outer edge of the felt spiral to create different looking roses.

Elfy Hints:

  • Sometimes it can be difficult to begin rolling the rose, especially when working with smaller pieces of felt. Try leaving a “tail” when beginning to roll the rose.

    It gives your fingers more fabric to work with until the rose is more comfortable to hold. When finished, trim the “tail” so that the back side is flat.
