How To Make Pretty Felt Roses
Craft Lightning is all about making something in 15 minutes or less and these pretty felt roses can definitely be made in that time.
Start by folding the felt sheet in half and placing it on the big shot die. The name of this die is Original Spirals Flower. If you don’t have a Big Shot Cutting Machine, you can use a Cricut or other cutting machine.
If you do not have any cutting machine, you can certainly cut out a spiral on felt and roll it, however, it would not be done in 15 minutes. Here is a free template for a spiral flower you can trace onto the felt to cut out if you want to try it:
I found the free image on Pinterest here.
When you run the folded felt through the Big Shot you will have two roses that come out looking like this:
The great thing about this is you really only need a dab of hot glue to hold this pretty rose together. I received this great Cordless Glue Gunfor Christmas and it is AMAZING! A glue gun is probably my most used crafting tool and this makes it so much easier!
Each felt sheet can make 4 flowers so for this arrangement of 12 I only needed 3 sheets-making this a very inexpensive project. Start rolling the flower from the skinny end working your way towards the larger end.
When you have it completely rolled, add a dab of hot glue to the end to secure it.
Now there are so many things you can do with these roses. I chose to hot glue them to decorative straws and place them in a mason jar my daughter bought me for Mother’s Day. However, you can add them to picture frames, or a pillow. The possibilities are endless!
