Felt Flower Ornament {No.7}

Felt Flower Ornament {No.7}


Felt Flower Ornament
{Ornament Number Seven}Materials Needed:Felt
Clean Metal Jar Lid
Ribbon
Embellishments {glitter}

Begin by making a template for the petals. I used a 1 1/2 inch circle punch to cut a circle out of cardstock, slightly trimming off one end. {You can also hand cut a circle if you do not have a punch}Trace your template onto a piece of felt and cut out. I needed 11 petals of this size for the 2 1/2 inch diameter lid that I used.
Prepare your clean jar lid by drilling a hole into the side for the hanger. Hot glue the petals around the outer edge of the lid.
Take your original cardstock template and trim a little more off the bottom, just about a 1/4 inch. Trace and cut 15 more petals of this size.


Continue hot gluing overlapping the first layer of petals.


When you get to the center you will have to trim the last two petals to fit; folding and tucking them in.


Embellish the center if you like. I place a dab of hot glue and sprinkled PK Glitter Glitz in Silver on top; Let sit to dry and dust off the access.


Finish off by threading the cut ribbon through the drilled hole for the hanger.

All of the ornament tutorials featured are very basic and allow you to create them to your own personal taste and style ~ be creative and have fun! Enjoy!

  21. What a pretty ornament – like a corsage for the tree!

  22. Lovely ornament and a great tutorial, thanks for sharing!

  23. Forget how I found you originally, but I re-found you via CSI. When I clicked to see the judge, I saw a whole bunch of projects in the sidebar that I’d bookmarked last year! LOL Anyway, I made my first fascinator (addictive) as a Christmas gift for my mom, and this was the flower style I chose to try! I realized I’d not posted about it yet, so I thought I’d let you know it’s coming. 🙂 Thanks!

  24. just started making my own felt and button bridal bouquets and buttonholes, really excited to come aacross another way of making fabulous flowers…gorgeous!

  25. I’m going to make this as a pin/broach to wear on a blazer rather than as an ornament, so I’ll use a plastic circle cut from a bottle instead of a jar lid for the base. Thanks for such a great idea.

  26. You make this sound so easy! I think I just decided to make these ornaments for Christmas stocking stuffers. Thanks for the step by step photos.
