So there are a million and one ways to skin this cat, and just as many tutorials out there to show us how to do it. I’ve made some of these for my friends to use as hair accessories, purse add-ons, and scarf clips…so I thought I’d share my entire no sew version of the project. I was inspired by this Flower Tutorial from Tidy Mom, but knew I didn’t want to use the stitching method to hold my creation together.

First you’ll need to grab a cup that is about 3″ in diameter.  Mine was just smaller than that…  and trace out as many circles as you can fit onto your sheet of felt.  My version uses 10 circles, so squeeze ‘em in there!

You Need 10 Circles for this version

Now take one circle and cut off about a quarter inch from all the sides.  This circle is going to be your base.

How to Make a Hot Glue Felt Flower

Trim off 1/4″ Around one of the Circles

You are going to repeat this exact process for each of your petals. Take one petal and fold it in half, and then in half again.

Attach it to your base circle using hot glue on the bottom of the petal. Once it is attached, open the center fold and place a small dab of glue on the in the inside to help your felt flower stay tight.

Continue this until 4 petals are attached to your base circle, following the exact same process for each one.

Continue Around the Base Until Four Are Attached

Next start a second layer of petals, perpendicular (offset) from the first and attach another four petals the exact same way.

Now you are left with a little empty spot in the center. I like to take one last petal folded the exact same way, add a ton of hot glue to all sides of the bottom point and press it right into the center of the flower. This adds some volume to the center of your flower and really holds all the petals together nicely.

Add one Last Petal Right to the Center

If some petals are sticking out farther than you would like, go ahead and use your scissors to trim up your felt flower so that it has an even consistent look. Add a pin back or hair clip to the back to make it easy to accessorize just about anything with your flower pin.

Continue with new colors of felt so you have a fun accessory in just about every color, and you’re all done! Each flower costs less than a dollar by the time you’re done!

    Your flowers are so lovely. I love felt but haven’t really ever done anything with it. I always think about trying it but sort of chicken out. Well, your wonderful post has me rethinking some felt ideas I have. Thanks so much for the inspiration AND for sharing at Southern Lovely!

    If you staple each circle after you fold into 1/4, it works even better!
