Do you need some fun new ways to decorate your presents this year? Then you are in luck, and today I’m part of a blog hop with my fellow bloggers. You can find their projects and links at the bottom of this post.
So, instead of using a bow to decorate your Christmas presents, why not use this lovely and cozy fleece poinsettia? If you want to learn how to make flowers with fleece, then I’m confident you’ll love this project.
As you might know, I love flowers, and so it made sense to make a Christmas flower. Mostly, I make paper flowers, but I thought how fun would it be to make it out of fleece. If you are familiar with my crafts, I have my Fleece Cone Christmas Trees that are very popular again this year.
I love fleece since it comes in so many colors, and I love that Joann Fabrics always has a sale on their polar fleece. For this post, I narrowed my colors to three shades of pinks and cream, but you can make whatever colors you love.
So let’s get this party started since you are probably dying to learn how to make flowers!
Fleece – I bought a half yard of each color, but if you are making just a couple get the least amount of fleece, they will sell.
1. Cut 4 Strips
The size strips you’ll need depends on the size you want your flower. My pieces are about 9 inches long and 2 3/4 inches wide. So my final flowers are 8 inches in diameter. The reason it comes out smaller is that the flower is tied in the middle.
2. Cut The Tips
You can make a pattern out of paper to make this easy. But, the fleece and the project is forgiving, so you don’t have to be too exact.
3. Fold The Petals in Half
Fold each flower strip lengthwise.
4. Fold Again
Like in the above photo with the fold pointing down, fold the ends down towards the fold. In the middle of the strips, you can glue down in the middle so things won’t unfold.
5. Cover The Stamens With Floral Tape
Cut a small piece of floral tape and cover the part right under the white bead. It doesn’t take much tape, so don’t overload the stem with tape.
6. Attach The Stamens Around Each Petal
Take the stamen and wrap it around each petal. At this point, the white balls are on the top of the petal. Next, place the two balls on the top of the middle of the petal. You can hot glue each side of the stem to the fleece to keep them in place.
You can attach one stamen to each petal or place them all in the middle petal.
7. Cut Wire
Cut about a 5-inch piece of wire. Take all your petals and put them together. Next, wrap the wire around the top and tie it on the backside of the flower. Use the loose ends and tie them to the ribbon on your package. You now know how to make flowers with fleece. But if you like this project, take a look at these other cool projects!
