While I like the end product, this ornament bummed me out. I wasn’t able to get a single picture I was happy with, and I considered whether I should even post it. It did end up being cute; however, unlike others, I’m not going to go into detail as to how I created the flower. There are others that have posted much better tutorials on how to create stunning felt flowers.
This is my favorite felt flower tutorial of all time. Although I have yet to make one that looks anywhere as good as these.
The link above is to create a felt flower broach. Since I was creating an ornament, I followed the tutorial to make 2 flowers, then instead of adding the pin, I added ribbon and glued them together.
…and queue the terrible picture parade.
Please use the link above for the tutorial. The how to is excellent.
Here’s a little photo journey of my flowers.
Here’s where I’ll step in. To make the ornament, I made 2 felt flowers, exactly the same size.
On the back of one flower I glued both ends of the ribbon to create a hanger. Once dry, I glued the two flowers together, back to back. This creates a double sided ornament which looks like a flower at any angle.
In the end it worked out; and although you can clearly see that I used hot glue in the pictures above, I don’t recommend it. The hot glue did it’s job, but it’s the main reason my flowers don’t look as good as the inspiration flowers.
These ornaments cost me nothing since I had everything on hand. However, I’m not going to do a breakdown of the supplies since I really do recommend following the tutorial above and it requires different supplies than I used.
