As part of Evie’s Farmer’s Market birthday party, there was a little ‘flower stall.’ There were buckets of real flowers, paper flowers and felt flowers- the kids loved it! And I wish I would’ve taken pictures of some of the beau-ti-ful bouquets that they made us that morning- they were both adorable and hilarious at the same time.
*Note about the felt- I used both wool felt and synthetic felt (like the kind you can buy at Hobby Lobby or Joann’s). As usual, I liked the way the wool felt held up way better. It’s just so lovely to work with! If I did it again, I’d only use wool felt.
Start rolling one end of your felt strip. Once you’ve rolled a couple of times (to leave room in the middle to stick a pencil/stem), start adding hot glue to the solid, non-fringed side. Keep rolling and gluing until the entire felt strip is rolled up into a fringed tube.
