Fabric Flower Tutorial

Fabric flowers are available at most craft stores, but making your own is pretty darn simple, not to mention less expensive!


  • burlap (cut into strips as pictured)
  • felt sheets (cut into strips as pictured)
  • glue gun


  1. Fold strip in half lengthwise and glue edges together.

  2. Snip little notches along the folded edge, only cutting halfway through.

  3. Start rolling the strip, dotting with glue to hold it together as you go.

  4. To make your flower larger, add another notched strip where you left off and keep rolling!
