Learn how to make felt rose flowers using this easy DIY rose flower tutorial with step-by-step photos and instructions.
Roses can be made with lots of different materials, like burlap or satin ribbons.
Today, we are going to use felt fabric to make several types of felt rose flowers. They are beautiful, simple, and fun to make!
Here’s how to make them.
How to Make Felt Rose Flowers
Step 1. Gather Supplies
Step 2. Trace a circle onto the felt using a fabric marker with disappearing ink.
Cut out the circle.
Step 3. Cut the circle into a spiral shape, cutting a wavy line into the felt as you go.
Step 4. Start with the center of the spiral; this is going to be the center of the rose.
Begin to put hot glue on the outside of the center and roll the felt, securing as you go.
Add more glue, and continue to roll the felt spiral up into a rose shape.
Secure the end of the spiral to the outside of the rose and you are finished!
You made a simple felt rose!
The wavy spiral, with some higher bumps and some lower, gives the finished rose more dimension.
If you cut the spiral with a smooth line, the finished rose would be very smooth without much dimension.
How to Make a Felt Rose with a Fluffy Mum Center
You can add to the felt rose by adding a small mum section to the middle.
Step 1. Start the same way, by tracing a circle onto felt.
Step 2. Cut the circle out, and cut the circle into a spiral using a wavy line.
Step 3. Make a felt mum by folding a small section of felt in half and gluing the long edges together.
Step 4. Cut a small fringe into the folded bottom edge.
Step 5. Put hot glue along the top and roll it up to create a felt mum flower.
Step 6. Use the fluffy mum as the center, and begin gluing the center of the felt spiral to the bottom of the mum.
Step 7. Glue the spiral of felt around the outside of the rose, rolling it up as you go.
Secure the end of the felt spiral, and your felt rose is done!
