Rosebud Felt Flower Bouquet
This felt flowers DIY will be your new centerpiece . . . on every table.
Love the look of flowers, but not the upkeep? These dainty felt rosebud bouquets are perfect for everyone who has a struggling green thumb! These DIY home décor accessories look great in home, office or dorm – and they don’t need sunlight to shine!
You can choose to add them to small vases, teacups and more – these would make great table centerpieces if you created larger bouquets. These rosebuds have a bit of sparkle with the addition of a crystal flatback center – if you prefer them not as glam, keep them plain. The more sparkly the better, I always say though!

Step 1: Gather materials.
You’ll need felt in a variety of colors, 18g aluminum wire in green, scissors, flatback gemstones and wire cutters. You’ll also need hot glue and a hot glue gun.
Step 2: Cut a few 8” pieces of aluminum wire.
These will act as your stems.
Step 3: Cut various squares of felt from different colors.
These will be your roses, and the size of your square will affect the final size of your rose. I made mine about 4”, give or take.
Step 4: Round the corners of your felt piece.
Cut a spiral into the center of your square. Make sure the widths are somewhat even!
Step 5: Cut a fluted edge into the outer edges.
…..this gives a more realistic look.
Step 6: Glue the very center of the spiral onto the end of a wire piece.
Step 7: Continue wrapping the felt around the wire, gluing down with every wrap for added strength.
Don’t wrap too tightly or too loosely!
Step 8: Glue down the very end of the spiral to finish off your rosebud.
Step 9: Glue in crystal flatbacks to the center of the roses for added sparkle.
Step 10: Cut a few leaf-shaped pieces out of green felt.
Step 11: Glue the small leaves under each rose, for a bit of greenery!
Step 12: Group your roses together and wrap green aluminum wire around the stems for a cleaner look.
This also makes it much easier to place in your chosen vase.
Step 13: Cut any excess wire off the ends to fit your vase.
Simply place in bouquet- if you want to gently move any of the rosebuds, bend the aluminum wires to your liking.
