I am in love with these Felt Roses so for today's blog I thought you'd like to see how I make them and then you can make your own.
They can be made into brooches, key-rings, jewelry or even used to embellish gifts and cards.
Step 1. Cut a circle out of your chosen colour of felt (this piece will be your rose). I trace round an old CD, but you can cut a larger circle for a larger rose.
Step 2. Cut the edged of the circle into a curve and work your way into the center of the circle.
Step 3. Add a dot of glue to the narrow end of your piece of felt and begin to roll it up.
Step 4. When you get to the end secure the base with glue and leave to dry. You can finish your rose here if you like or add some leaves.
Step 5. Cut out 2 leaf shapes out of some green felt and fix them to the back of your rose with some glue. You can then add a hair grip, brooch pin, or a key ring, the choice is yours.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, let me know if you give it a try.
