Pattern sourced from Pinterest

Print the pattern above or save the picture and copy it to a word document and print to any size.  Once you have printed and cut out the rose template pin it onto your felt.

You can trace the pattern in pencil but I found it easier to pin the pattern on the felt and cut it out.

Place the glue around the base of the rose with the petals on the top.  Slowly roll up your rose, working from the outside in.

You may need to hold in place for a few minutes with a pin and then place some glue in the middle on the bottom and fold the rose back onto it.  This large circle at the end will act as a base to glue your felt rose on.

Lastly place a broach pin on the back of your felt rose with some glue.  Let stand to dry.  Then your felt rose is ready to pin on your gift.

I loved making these little felt roses, they are so simple and quick to make.  When you find the perfect gift for someone its so nice to present it beautifully.

I would love to hear how you go at making some felt roses and how you have used them.
