DIY: Felt Flowers

thetwiddles_diy_felt_flowers-15-1My little Lila & I made these cute flowers a while ago with construction paper. I got the flower inspiration from here and the stem inspiration came from my school memories as a child. The outcome went pretty well considering it was our first time. She gave them to her teacher for her birthday but recently mentioned that they started falling apart. I do remember that it was a bit of a struggle to get the paper to stay glued together, so we decided to make them with felt paper to ensure a long life. :) Here’s a quick 10 step tutorial on how you can DIY and create these lovies to give to a special someone.
