Speaking of flowers, I’m pretty confident that they run through my veins. Well, not necessarily in my veins but in our family. You see, my grandmother taught Ikebana the Japanese art of flower arranging, and my mom was always tending to her many roses.
My favorite thing to do as a young girl was to roundup the blooming flowers in our garden and make a beautiful bouquet of roses, azaleas, and maidenhair ferns for my mom.
Sadly, both of these lovely women are no longer with me, but their love of flowers lives on.
When I can’t have fresh flowers in our home, my attention turns to felt and paper flowers.
Felt flowers are the next best thing to the real deal. I love paper and felt flowers since they last forever, and the investment in time and money is well spent.
If you are new to the world of flower making, maybe you have a few questions.
Where do I buy felt?
Did you know that Hobby Lobby has a lot of felt squares that you can buy? I bought the dark purple and cream felt in the above photo. I love their line that is 9″ x 12″ and 2 mm in thickness. It is such a lush and lovely felt. I found that it holds its shape beautifully since it is significantly thicker than most felts I’ve bought.
Another great source of felt is Etsy. Of course, I have bought some from Etsy, and their felt is excellent as well. The only downside with purchasing felt on Etsy is that the delivery can take a little time.
I did buy a batch of felt from Amazon, and they aren’t true felt. They are stiff and on the shiny side. I would stay away from their felt.
Are all felt created equal?
According to Wikipedia, “Felt can be made of natural fibers such as wool or animal fur, or from synthetic fibers such a petroleum-based acrylic or acrylonitrile or wood pulp-based rayon.”
Well, when I bought some felt for my felt flowers, I quickly found out that not all felt is created equal. I recently purchased some from Amazon because of the convenience and time factor. Who doesn’t love the Prime two-day delivery option? But, the felt that I bought was synthetic and not bendable or plush.
So, when buying your felt, make sure to buy a plush blend with possibly wool ingredients.
Felt flowers template, do I need one?
For this felt flowers wreath, you can make your template. Just choose and object that is circular and cut it out on paper. Then use that as your pattern. You can find the instructions on how to make felt flowers post.
As you can see in the photo, I did make some felt eucalyptus stems. All you need for this is some green felt cut in an oblong shape. Mostly cut leaves the same size except for a few smaller ones for the tip. Just punch the green floral wire through the middle of the leaves and place a dab of hot glue on the backside if you don’t want them to slide. I love how they came out, and I’ll make sure to add another tutorial later this year.
Once you have all your felt flower made, then hot glue them to the wreath of your choice. Also, make sure to check out my friend’s fabulous wreaths below. I love this group of talented women, and their creativity and excitement inspire me.
