Tip: You can skip color correctly - but friendly, pastel and colorful colors fit best with this felt flower.
3rd step: Now the single flowers are glued on each other. Make sure the pages are facing down with the pen lines. Start with the biggest flower - on this you stick all other flowers with a blob of hot glue.
Note: How many flowers you spend is up to you. But two rows of flowers should be at least.
4th step: After the glue has dried, the felt flower is decorated. You can let your creativity run wild. Either you sew a color matching button in the middle of the flower (this can also be stuck) or you embroider little seams with yarn.
By itself, the felted flower is already finished. Whether as a jewelry for the hair, gift tags, window decoration, key ring - this little felt flower makes a good figure everywhere!
Make a rose out of felt
You need for a felt rose:
- red or pink felt
- thin pen
- Hot glue gun
Step 1: Draw a flower-like shape on the red felt with the pen. The petals are very roundish.
Note: If you are painting this flower, be aware that the rose will be smaller by a few inches later. Accordingly, the painted flower should be created a little larger.
Step 2: Cut out the flower with scissors.
Step 3: Then cut a spiral into the petal, from outside to inside. Once inside, be careful not to cut the spiral.
4th step: Now the felt rose is formed. The page with the pen lines is below. Start inside: the rose is rolled in from the inside out. From time to time apply a small dab of glue to keep the petal in shape. Roll the rose together piece by piece.
The rose is finished now! It can now be attached anywhere you want.

Round crease flower
You need for the flower:
- colorful felt sheets
- Hot glue gun
Step 1: At the beginning, think about how big the felt flower should be. As a base you need a circle. We make a flower with a diameter of 5 cm.
Step 2: Draw six circles, each with a diameter of 5 cm, with the compass on the felt plate.
Step 3: Then cut out the circles with scissors.
4th step: Now 5 felt circles are folded. Fold them so that they look like little fortune cookies. Affix the folds with two glue spots, once inside and once at the outside fold.
Step 5: Then glue the folded flowers to the sixth circle. Spread four flowers on the circle and attach them with hot glue. The last flower comes in the middle on top.

Felt flower with many flowers
You need for the felt flower:
- Felt sheets in the desired color
- Ruler and pen
- Hot glue gun
Step 1: For this slightly more elaborate felted flower you need a little more preparation. The individual elements and flowers must first be tailored.
- a large circle as a base (d = 10 cm)
- 2 x small circles (XXX)
- 16 x square (5 cm x 5 cm)
- 12 x square (4 cm x 4 cm)
- 8 x square (3 cm x 3 cm)
Draw these elements on felt and cut them all clean.
Step 2: Before you can put together the felt flower, the individual flowers must be formed. The flowers emerge from the squares.
Cut each of the 36 squares into a pentagon. In the picture you can see exactly how.
Then glue the sides of the flower together in the middle with a small piece of glue so that the cup forms on top.
3rd step: Now the felt flower is glued together.
Start with the big flowers. These 16 flowers are now evenly distributed on the edge of the large circle, that no gaps are visible and the flowers do not overlap. Once you have sorted the flowers, stick each one with hot glue.
Repeat this with the 12 middle flowers. Distribute this staggered in the second row of the flower. They fill in the gaps of the big flowers. Also attach these with hot glue.
Finally, the 8 small flowers are also glued on.
4th step: Center is now a round, free space. This still needs to be filled.
To do this, glue the two smaller circles together with a small glue dot in the middle, the little one on the big one. Then cut the circles around a few times with scissors. The circles are then compressed, so that the individual rays come together in a kind of tufts.
Glue this tuft into the center of the felt flower!
Dry felting with felted wool
You can also make felt flowers yourself in a different way - with dry felt. This is done using felt wool as raw material and not as a plate. In this guide you will learn more about: Dry felting
