- Felt. I have not personally used the felt linked below. Cricut felt is also good, but can be pricey.
- Hot glue gun and glue
- A way to cut your felt. You can print the design out and then cut it by hand with scissors or use a Cricut machine or other similar machine and have it cut it out for you. If you use a Cricut machine, then I recommend using a pink fabric mat with the rotary blade (only for the Cricut Maker models).
- Hoops to add your flowers too. I purchased all three in a pack from Dollar Tree. I spray painted my rings rose gold to match with my color scheme.
- Spray paint your rings if needed.
- Select flowers and leaves you would like to make, then determine the size you would like each piece to be. Remember flowers will be smaller after they are assembled.
- If you would like more information on how to cut felt flowers on your Cricut, then please click here.
- Once all of your flowers and leaves are assembled, use hot glue to glue them to your wreath form/hoop. I applied extra hot glue to the back to make sure everything was glued in place. I also use glue to attach surrounding flowers and leaves together, which also helps to hold everything in place.
- Tie some ribbon around your hoops so you can attach them to a wall or rod. I laid out my hoops first to help me determine how long I wanted my ribbon to be for each hoop, because I wanted them to hang at different lengths.
This flower I got from Cricut Design space. You can find it here or by typing in felt dahlia in the search box.
- Apply a small amount of glue around the edges of the 4 petal piece and pink each edge together. This is the center of our dahlia.
2. Take any of the remining piece and place a dot of glue at the base of one of the petals. Then pend the petal together. Repeat this for all the petals.
3. Apply glue to the center of your largest piece and place the other large piece in the center making sure to offset the petals from the one below. Continue to do this, placing an equal size or smaller size in the center of the one before and offsetting the petals from the previous one. Stacking the flower pieces largest to smallest.
4. Once you have glued all your petals inside one another, glue the center piece inside to finish this flower.
Large Flower with felt ball center:
This is a modified version of my flower, which you can find here.
- Cut a strip of felt about the circumference of your felt ball (so it wraps around your felt ball once). For a slightly different look, you can wrap your felt ball with the strip of felt two or more times.
- Place a line of hot glue along the center of your felt strip. Then place your felt ball on top of your glue strip and roll your felt ball in the felt strip.
3. Take a pair of scissors and make cuts around the top of the felt strip. The cuts should be about all the way to the felt ball.
4. Take each petal and apply a dot of hot glue to the bottom of the petal. Then pinch the petal together. Continue to do this for all of your petals.
5. Apply some glue to the bottom of your petals and place them around your felt ball center. They can overlap some. Make sure to off set the petals that you place behind the first layer of petals. You can attach as many or few petals as you would like.
The pink flower can be found in my library.
Start at the open end and apply some glue, then just roll the flower with your finger applying glue along the edge as you go. When you reach the end apply glue to the circle and use that to cover up as well as secure your rolled flower in place.
This was a fun, elegant, and inexpensive way to dress up the photo backdrop at my wedding. It was simple so it did not overcrowd the photos. I actually also used the white curtain with these flower hoops to cover up the parking lot behind my wedding ceremony location. I then had my family move it inside to create the backdrop of the photo booth spot. The white curtain just seemed a little plain, and this was exactly what it was needing. These would also be pretty as just wall décor. I may hang them on the wall in a future nursery room. I actually just saw similar ones, but made with silk flowers, in a baby nursery. They have also become popular to make for bridesmaids to carry down the aisle instead of a traditional bouquet.
