DIY felt flower

It's always good to know how to make a felt flower... you never know when you may need one.

tools.  felt, scissors, hot glue gun.

cut a strip of felt.

I eyeballed it.  It's about 1.75 inches wide.

hot glue it in half.
*make sure you hot glue just the edge.

cut small slits all the way down the edge.
*opposite the hot glue edge, fool.

stop, drop and roll.
*stop and drop are optional.

this is what it should look like upside down.

and right side up.

now use your fingers to fluff the petals.

whoa!  they're multiplying!!
*notice different slit widths make a different looking flower.
**a shorter length on the felt gives you a smaller flower.

Now you can make a flower for your hair, make a wreath, gift wrap, make a picture frame, make a pizza... NO do NOT put felt flowers on your pizza.  I just wanted to make sure you were paying attention.
