AdTech Hi Temp Precision Pro Glue Gun

Felt scraps in several colors, including green for leaves

Craft and Floral Ring, 6 inches in diameter

Scissors

Wood skewer (optional)

 

 

Instructions:

 

petal shapes

Step One: Cut petal shapes from a strip of felt, approximately 1 ½ inches in length. Cut a small slit near the base of each petal and fold one edge over the other. Secure with a dot of hot glue, using a skewer to protect your fingers from the heat. This adds dimension to the petal. Continue this with all your petals until you have a whole stack.

Step Two: Cut a small circle of felt approximately 2 inches in diameter. Cut a slit near the bottom and secure with hot glue, in the same manner the petals were made. This is your flower base. Glue petals around circle.
