Felt Flower Embellishments

We promised our daughter that we would go up north and play in the snow this year. We have absolutely no appropriate clothing for such when I came across this hat and glove set at Joann the other day...I had to snatch it up for our cold day of fun! They were on sale for $2 each...but they looked a little plain.

I used this tutorial from Tatertots and Jello for easy felt flowers.


9x12 piece of felt (for one large flower)

hot glue gun

1. Cut out six "flower" shapes from your felt...along with a round circle to glue all your petals to.

2. Put a dab of hot glue in the center of your flower and fold in half.

3. Place another dab of hot glue in the middle of the bottom of your half flower and fold in half again.

Here are all six of my petals:

4. Glue five of the petals around the edge of the circle.

6. Now, you can put a bead in the center of the petals...but I chose to glue the last petal in the center, straight up, to make the flower more full.

That's it! Super easy, right? You can also add leaves, like in the original tutorial, but I like it plain like this.

I glued it to my winter hat to jazz it up a bit. My husband liked the hat better before I added the flower...but he just said, "I don't know why I expected you to wear it plain!". Exactly. He knows me well!

Finally, I took a strip of felt and rolled it up to make a little rosette. I glued it to the left "ring finger" of the glove.

I love my new hat and gloves set. I have a hat and gloves set planned for my daughter out of red hopefully I can get that done before next week.
