No Sew Felt Flower for Headbands or Hairclips Tutorial

These flowers are adorable and so simple to make. They are also very versitile, you can add them to anything. I adapted this flower from the many other tutorials I found online.
You will need two coordianting colors of felt, petal pattern, scissors and, and hot glue, and an embellisment for the middle. I used flatback faux rhinestones of various sizes and colors. But you can use vintage buttons, bottlecaps, flatback resin shapes, or even another felt piece.

Start off by making a felt circle 1.5 to 2 inches.

Take petal pattern (you can find one by googling petal pattern, or use this one I found from feltorama. I only used the smaller of the two) and cut out 6 of each color. Petal should be around 1.5 inches, which is the size of the smaller petal.

Next start with 1 petal put a dab of glue at the bottom (flat part not rounded) and squeeze together now repeat for all petals.

Now glue 6 of petals on the circle, and layer the other color on top. Then add your embellishment to the middle and Voila you're finished,. Now you can add to an elastic head band or a partially lined clip, or to a pin for a brooch, or a bag. The choices are endless, have fun!!!!
