The Pin Junkie: Felt Flowers

Felt Flowers

I love flowers.  I especially love flowers that don't wilt or need to be watered.  A few weeks ago I made these paper flowers.  Then I saw this pin on Pinterest and didn't waste any time making another crafty bouquet!  These felt flowers are fun to make for yourself or even give as a gift to a friend instead of giving fresh flowers.  Kids could make this craft too, since it's just tracing, cutting, and gluing.  Here's what you'll need:

Materials:
felt
scissors
buttons
wooden skewers
a glue gun
a jar, vase, or flower pot for a base

Directions
1.  Use the pattern (click here for pattern) to trace the flower and leaf shapes onto felt and cut out.
2.  Glue one large and one small flower piece together and glue on a button in the center of each flower.
3.  Glue a wooden skewer to the back of each flower for the stem.
4.  Carefully poke a small hole in the center of the leaf and push the wooden skewer through.

I put my flowers in a small canning jar with some buttons but you can get creative with your base.  Instead of buttons, you could use candy or jelly beans.  Instead of a canning jar you could use a flower pot with florist foam to hold the skewers.

I'm also thinking that instead of gluing the flowers onto skewers, I might use them to attach to wrapped presents or packages as an extra embellishment.
