Make your own wool felt Rose for Valentine's Day. It's a simple sweet craft project. A perfect pin corsage for a winter pea coat or a pretty clip to accent a bun for a Valentine's Day dinner.
- Quality wool felt. We used Heather Bailey's Designer Felt in Cherry Pie, Kermit, and Pistachio.
- Glue Gun and glue sticks.
- Good quality scissors. We use the Fiskars Non-stick Detail Scissors.
- Safety pin, metal hair clip or metal pin back.
- Complimentary of color crochet thread and needle.
Fold red piece of wool felt to cut out a square.
Cut out felt rose starting with the outside edge moving inward to the center. Cut in a wavy uneven line to add interest to your rose petals.
Cut out a 2 inch circle of green felt. Cut out another green circle of felt about 1/4 inch larger. Cut out two leafs free style about 2 1/2 inches long and 1 inch at the base.
Using the smaller green circle glue starting in the center of the felt circle the center of the red petal felt. Continue to glue the red petal felt in a circle around moving outward until the end of the felt is reach to form the complete rose.
At the base of the green leaves pinch together and glue in place to add dimension to the leaves. Next, glue leaves to the bottom of the rose then top with large green felt circle.
Glue or sew safety pin, hair clip or pin back to back of the rose.
