Felt Flower Mums Tutorial

I love cute flower pins!  These little (or big) mums fit the bill.  They can be placed on a pin back for a friend, a hair clip, or even my wreath that I recently made.  Super Easy and fast.  The perfect craft.

Yup, that is it.  

Take your sheet of felt (.25) and cut a strip the longest way possible.  The height of your strip depends on how big you want your flower.  The lower the height, the smaller the flower.  Remember that this strip will be folded in half.

Fold strip in half and put a light line of hot glue along the bottom of the strip and fold the strip in half.

So now you have a long strip, starting from the top cut a length down.  Being careful not to cut thru the entire strip.  Continue to cut this in a fringe type pattern.  The width of each of these cuts determines the width of flower petals.  

After it is all cut, put a small bead of glue at one end of your fringed strip.  Begin rolling the strip.  Yes, just roll.


After all is rolled and done, hold your little roll together.  Turn it over and lean it on the table to flatten the bottom.  Then take your hot glue gun and glue the heck out of the bottom.  It is then up to you what you are going to do with your little flower. 

I added some vintage buttons to the center of mine.  I think these would make a great Mother's day present or Pinterest party idea!  Enjoy!
