Felt Ruffle Flower Tutorial
1. cut circles out of felt approx 1.5 inches in diameter.

2. place a dot of hot glue in the center of the circle and fold in half. (like a taco!)

3. squeeze and hold in place until the glue cools.
4. place a dot on the outer crease of the “taco” and fold in half again.

5. squeeze and hold in place until the glue cools.
6. Create a different shape by placing a medium dot of hot glue in the center and  sqeeze the felt together between all your fingers.

7. starting with the edges, glue each ruffle to a circle of felt in a clockwise position.

8. finish it off by placing a ruffle in the center.

And there you have it!

You can make these any size you would like! And there are a ton of uses: glue it onto a bobby pin for a hair accessory, use it to finish off a gift wrapping, add to the corner of a picture frame, glue to a pin and wear it on a shirt, pin it to a string of pearls, etc!
Good luck! And send photos of your finished ruffle flowers so I can see what you did with them!

Here is a photo from a friend who made Felt Ruffle Flowers as Napkin Rings!

    Thanks for the tutorial. I have a felt mad friend who is going to LOVE these. My mind is whirring, the possibilities are endless. I think I’ll start with a brooch and see where I end up!

    I was wondering if you place both types of ruffles on the same circle of felt or is each one made up of all the same type ruffles? These are very cute but it is hard to tell from the pics exactly what they are made of shape-wise.

    Please advise.

    Kate-I found several tutorials for flower pins off of Pinterest(found your blog on there looking for hairstyling tips–Love your blog!). Suiting material, jersey knit, and fleece all are also great for making flower pins!
