Felt Pom Pom Flower Tutorial

These flowers are so cute and not to mention easy to make.  They are my new favorite flower.
Supplies:

Felt
Scissors
Glue

Step 1:


Cut a strip of felt about 2 inches wide. The longer your strip is in length, the larger your flower will be.

Step 2:


Fold your strip in half and glue the edges together. Make sure ONLY to put your glue right at the edges, not in the center of your fold.


Step 3:



Cut little notches along the length of the felt, only going about halfway through to the other end. You’ll be cutting on the fold… WHERE YOU DIDN’T PUT ANY GLUE!

Step 4:


Start at one end of the strip and start rolling it up, like you would if you were rolling a sleeping bag. Dab a few dots of glue along the way to hold things in place.


This is the back of your flower. It doesn’t look perfect or pretty, but no one’s going to see it. Make sure you secure the outside edge with a generous amount of glue so it doesn’t unroll on you.

All done!



That’s it!
Use these little babies as gift toppers, brooches, shoe clips, hair clips, on wreaths, string them up as a garland… whatever you do, it’s going to be adorable. I love making these and you will too!
