If you follow me on Pinterest then I am sure it will come as no surprise that I have been making these beauties. I have been pinning DIY for felt flowers and greenery like crazy. I am having a blast trying out different tutorials and experimenting with colours and shapes. There is something special about making a floral arrangement but there is something even more magical when you can make the flowers to go with the arrangement. It makes you feel as though you are a super hero with super flower power. How can you not feel bad ass when you look at a floral you made as well as the flowers that go with, just all like “damn I am so boss I make my own flowers”, of course all of this is followed by a hair toss……too much?! Okay maybe it’s not like hair toss level cool but it’s still pretty rad. I would like to share some of my super powers with you so you too can aspire to the hair toss level of coolness. Let’s start with the elegant Calla Lily;
This is one of my favourite flowers so of course I had to give it a try. It is one of the simplest tutorials which is great because that means you can make a lot of them before your hands give out. I am sure you can pretty much figure out how to make this without looking at the tutorial but it does give some added instructions on how to attach it to a wire to give it a stem vibe.
I love this flower, to me it has a Daisy flower vibe going on, there are so many colour combos to play around with. My goal with this one is to make miniature ones to add to a new wall hanging floral I am working on, eeekk, guys I am so excited to show you but that is for another day. The tutorial for this flower also shows how you can get your stem on, if you choose to make them without the stem please be careful as I burnt myself with the hot glue on this one. I hope you aren’t as clumsy as myself but it’s rare I can escape without burning one of my fingers.
This last one, we will call it the Ruffle Flower, has a very simple design which again means you can make a bunch of them. They can be used as a centre for another larger flower or you can leave them on their own. Again, lots of colour combos and variations once you figure out how to make it. I just love this super hero flower power and I am just getting started. Follow me on Pinterst to see what other ones I will be attempting to make (link along the left hand side).
There you have it folks, lots of ways to add some colour to welcome spring. Yes, it’s coming but probably not for a few more months which doesn’t mean you can’t have an early welcome. I usually start my spring cleaning and decorating right about now, it’s the only thing that gets me through these winter blues. Get out your glue guns and put your super powers to work and let the hair flow 😉
