What Do You Need To Make Felt Flowers?
You will need Felt sheets in a few different colors, a good pair of scissors, a hot glue gun, and some dried twigs.
What kind of felt do you use for felt flowers?
Felt Flowers look best when made with Wool Felt. I’ve used inexpensive craft store felt sheets for all of my crafting years, and I love how affordable they are. But a few months ago I splurged and bought some wool felt online and I can totally say they are worth the hype! I highly encourage you to buy and try these felt sheets if you can.
What is the best way to attach felt?
In today’s How to make felt flowers tutorial I use a hot glue gun to adhere everything. Hot glue dries quickly and is a great option. In my previous post, I also talk about the Best Glue that works for adhering Felt – if you want to avoid burning your fingers check that out!
How to Make Felt Flowers in 4 Easy Steps
Learn how to make Felt Flowers by hand in 4 easy steps.
Total Time: 30 minutes
Step 1: Cut the felt shapes
Using a sharp pair of scissors, hand cut the felt. For one flower you will need: 4 darker shade petals, 5 lighter shade petals, one tiny square + strip for center and two leaves.
Step 2: Apply hot glue
Adhere hot glue to the centre piece of felt, and then fold it onto the twig.
Next, apply hot glue to the bottom of a petal
Step 3: Layer and adhere petals
Place the petal onto the twig, and press into place. Repeat this for each petal- overlapping the previous petal slightly
Step 4: Adhere the leaves
Finally adhere the leaves onto the base of the flower!
Cut tiny leaves and adhere onto twigs to make fillers for the Felt Flower Bouquet.

Tips for making Felt Flowers:
- Use a good quality scissors: I recommend using the Fiskars Amplify Razor edge shears to easily cut multiple layers of felt at once- and boy does that help speed up the cutting process here.
- Free hand the petal shapes: I didn’t use a template to cut out my felt petals or leaves. I don’t mind if the leaves are a bit wonky, it just makes them uniquely handmade
- Create an assembly line. I worked with 3 flowers at a time, cut all the felt first, and then started adhering them down. I found that I could apply hot glue to up to 4 petals at once and then could adhere to all of them before the glue hardened.
- I was able to make 3 flowers and a couple of buds from two 6 by 6-inch sheets of felt.
Try and use a good quality felt- the flowers turn out so luxurious!

Pretty flowers and it is the season. I like how you didn’t use a pattern. It makes them more life like. You and I were thinking alike for this month’s Crafty DeStash 🙂
These are so pretty and great for spring time! I could also see myself making flowers and using on bows. 🙂
Your felt flowers are SO lovely! I’m really liking how you glued the little leaves on the twigs for stems. So, so cute.
Those tiny leaves on the twigs are my favorite too!
I love these beautiful felt flowers and such a great tutorial!!
Love this- so creative!
This is so pretty! and it would be fun to try!
The girls helped me make these. I would cut the petals, they arranged the assembly line. I would apply the hot glue and they would hand me the correct colored petal. It was fun!
So sweet! Love these to bits! What a great idea for Mothers Day and they last! Thank you for the tutorial 🙂
Thank you for your sweet words! And yes, I love that these flowers will never die!
These flowers are beautiful!
Your ideas are always so fantastic! I love your video tutorial too, I just subscribed 🙂 Your flowers are so trendy, I feel like you’d see these in a high end boutique. Your idea of using the felt flowers in a bridal bouquet is a great one. Pinning!
Beautiful job, I love these flowers! I think a nice bouquet of these would be perfect for my craft room! 🙂
These are so adorable!!! They look really great. I think we all had flowers on the mind with Mother’s Day right around the corner. So many great flower tutorials in this Crafty Destash group.
I’ve been looking for something like this for several weeks. I’m glad I finally found the beautiful ones you made.
Those felt flowers are super adorable!! Although you make it look so very simple I am one of the unfortunate people that lack even a single drop of artistic ability and would really benefit from a template for the petals and leaves! I ended up wasting several sheets of felt and received severe burns on my fingers after trying to replicate the beautiful flowers above and they ended up looking like complete disasters! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE consider making a template for the artistically challenged! Thank so much for sharing all your beautiful ideas!
I Have only just found your beautiful flowers. if possible i would love a template for flowers and leaves. i am not too good at doing my own.
I will try to add them soon!
