DIY No-Sew Felt Flowers

Supplies for No Sew Felt Flowers

  • Felt
  • Scissors
  • Fabric Glue or Hot Glue


Step 1

Cut out 8 equal circular pieces of felt. There is no specific size of circle that you must have. Make them as large or as small as you’d like.

We suggest using a glass or cookie cutter (or any other circular item) to trace to make equal size circles.

The larger the circle, the larger your finished flower will be.

Step 2

Take one circle of the felt and fold it in four. Do this by folding the circle in half, then fold it in half again.

Step 3

To keep the felt piece looking this way, you will want to glue it together using either hot glue or craft glue. Glue the folds together to keep it secure.

Hold the felt together for at least 15 seconds to make sure the glue dries.

Step 4

Create 7 folded pieces of felt in total. Leave one of the felt circles unfolded.

Step 5

On the remaining flat felt circle, glue a folded piece on top. Place the point in the center of the circle, with the open ends lining on the outer edge.

Glue a total of 5 felt pieces onto the top of the flat felt circle. They will be tight together, but that will create the ruffled felt flower look. Be sure to allow the glue to completely dry.

Step 6

In the middle of the base, now insert and glue the remaining two felt pieces. You will want the folds to face upwards, so that the entire ruffled felt flower looks full.

Step 7

Add leaves to the ruffled felt flower if you would like. To do so, cut two leaf shapes from green felt. Glue them onto the bottom of the flower base.
