Felt Flower Tutorials

If you didn't already know I love flowers in any form! Some brides opt to use something other than a fresh flower for many different reasons. I like to be able to offer them options. This is also a great DIY project to do one afternoon with your bridesmaids. There are so many wonderful felt tutorials out there, here are some of my favorites. Remember you are not limited to felt, try them with any type of fabric. Enjoy!

From Will You? To I do!, shares a tutorial for a fun rose that has so many application possibilities and also easy to do! Try it without the scalloped edge for a different look.

Check out the tutorial for this absolutely gorgeous felt flower by Mrs. Priss.

How sweet is this flower! Tutorial and image courtesy of I Candy Handmade.
