I finally got the mirror finished that I wrote about here. I love the blue, and it looks perfect in the Sparkletots’ room. The room still needed a bit more color since the walls are so white, so I made a garland out of felt flowers to cheer the mirror up a bit.
There are a tons of different ways to make flowers out of felt. Here’s how I made these ones…
Supplies: felt, scissors, needle, thread, ribbon or twine & crochet hook
Cut out five or six flower shapes, depending on how full you want the flower. You can make a stencil, trace and cut so they are all the same. I did mine freehand, I don’t think you can tell either way. One of the shapes you are going to use as your base. Take another shape and fold it into quarters- like so..
To make the garland, the flowers can be stitched on to whatever material you’d like. You can use ribbon, twine, a long, narrow strip of fabric… I used some white twine, which I crocheted into a chain. Click here for a how-t0 video for making a crochet chain stitch.
