Another flower to add to your stash! What a sunny, bright flower. Makes me think of coming spring.

Materials: felt, hot glue and gun, pom pom, stiff felt (optional)

Cut 2 – 4 inch squares of felt. Slice in 4 directions as shown above.

Roll each corner as pictured above and use hot glue to hold it together. Hot glue goes a lot farther than I used to think. It's important to only use a small dab of glue for three reasons:

1. Far less likely to get burned  

2. No point in wasting hot glue when a little will do 

3. A lot of hot glue tends to seep into additional layers of fabric nearby, making things stick that you don't want stuck.

To keep the outside layer of the roll from sticking to the inside, I used tweezers. I think you will see what I mean when you try it.

Stack one rolled felt square on another and hot glue them together in the center. At this point the flower is floppy. So, I hot glued a 1.5" diameter piece of stiff felt onto the back. 

Hot glue the pom pom to the center and your set! Are you ready for spring to come?

The Real Deal: It cost less than $0.50 to make.
