Hi! It's Jillian! As you can see from the title and the picture, you can probably guess what we're making. I've been meaning to make this post for a while now, so I hope you enjoy it! Let's get started.
Floral wire or a thick plastic straw
1. Rip (or cut, which I like to do because it's neater) a piece of duct tape about 2 inches long.
2. Fold the top left hand corner over on itself, leaving a strip of adhesive on the bottom and right side.
3. Now fold the right corner over, still leaving a sticky part on the bottom.
4. Take what you now have and position it on the straw (or wire) as shown below.
5. Wrap it tightly around it, and you should have this. It's (supposed to be) the rosebud!
6. For the petals, repeat steps 1-3 and wrap it around the bud at angle. Do this again and again and again to make the petals.
When you're all done, you should have something like this! Give it as a gift, tape it to a pen, use to decorate almost anything. See ya!
P.S. We should have some Christmas/holiday crafts coming soon, so stay tuned!
Hey guys! So, today we will be sharing our tutorial for making a felt flower. All you need is:
- 2 colors of felt (we used pink and grey)
-a hot glue gun
- your imagination!
The last one is the most important. Here's what you do:
1. Cut a strip of felt about 2 inches thick and 6 inches long out of each color of felt (sorry, no picture)
2. Cut triangles from the top of each piece of felt so that they look something like this:
3. Glue the 2 strips together
4. Start rolling up the strips, hot gluing on the way
5. Continue rolling until you run out of fabric. Then, hot glue the edge down.
6. Now you're finished and you should have something like this:
You can do many things with your beautiful felt flower. I did a couple of things. First, I glued a bunch of them on a box for decoration:
Or you could glue it on the top of a pencil (But that could make it hard to erase. You might want to use a pen instead)

ps. Sorry about the bad pictures. There's only so much 2 crafters can do and make an awesome craft, and take good pictures at the same time is not one of them!
