This is a very easy project with a ton of possibilities. Kate and I thought of this while browsing the hobby store shopping for something completely different. Now we are creating quite the collection!
1. Gather supplies.
We begin with some templates for the size of the layers that we wanted. You will also need felt sheets, tulle, clips, center gems or decorations, scissors and permanent fabric glue.
2. Cut Layers
We began with the templates but quickly realized that it was just as easy to begin with the smallest layers and cut around it to create the next layers. Do this about 5 or 6 times until the last layer is large enough to cover the clip. Be sure to create a few layers of tulle.
3. Arrange and Glue
Add a drop of glue to the center of the largest layers and work your way through all of the descending layers. Top off with a center decoration.
4. Glue the Clip
Glue along the edge of the clip with a hot glue gun and then attach the largest layers to the top of the clip. Let dry for at least 30 minutes before you use.
5. All done!
Feel free to clean up the edges so that it looks exactly how you like it (the picture above was before I did this). Now you have a quick DIY felt flower clip that you can put in your hair, or wear it as a brooch.
Play with different sizes, colors, patterns, gems…like I said, possibilities are endless!
