After a few days of being under the weather, a beautiful no-sew felt flower was just what I needed to brighten my week. This project is very “DO-able” even for a crafting novice. It’s also very inexpensive. All you need is a little bit of time. For me it was 2 nap times (thankfully Mr. Jake took a two hour nap the last two days). As a side note I should let you know that I’m a pretty slow crafter so you may be able to finish it faster.
I recreated this sweet design after I stumbled upon the beautiful work of Lindsay from Pen & Paint while on Instagram the other day. As I looked through pictures of her drawings and paintings, marveling at her talent and creativity, I was particularly drawn to an image of a sweet little felt flower. I had to have one for myself.
Here’s what you need to recreate this fun DIY wall art project:
Hot glue gun
8 inch embroidery hoop
Step 1: Cover your embroidery hoop with fabric and tighten. Cut excess fabric, leaving about 1/2 an inch of fabric (you’ll glue this down at the end).
Step 2. Cut your first row of petals. My petals were about 1″ wide x 1.5″ tall. I had 17 total.
Step 3. Cut the remaining rows of petals. I ended up having 8 rows and each one had 17 petals. Each new row of petals should be slightly smaller than the row before it.
Step 4. Once everything was cut, I laid it all out on the table in the same way I was going to assemble and glue it. Once I had it how I liked it, I took each petal, starting with the first row, and hot glued it down onto my embroidery hoop.
Step 5. Add a button or any fun round piece to cover up the middle.
Step 6. Finally, glue down the remaining fabric on the backside of the hoop.
Hope you enjoy your easy, no sew felt flower. It’s the perfect addition for any nursery, kids room or empty wall space. I think I might have to make a whole wall of these for my new craft room!
