handmade felt dark burgundy ranunculus

Moody Magic

The ranunculus can be a bit more complex to assemble than other types of flower. But if you’ve made our previous felt ranunculus, you’ll have no problem with this darker, moodier version. Designed by Krista, you’ll see in her tutorial below how she uses a combination of black and merlot felt plus a black art marker to create an ombre effect with the petals. 

We’d love to see your version of these burgundy felt ranunculus flowers and how you decorate with them! Make sure to post photos on our crafters community page or on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia.

Skill level: Beginner-Intermediate due to the large amount of petals you’ll need to assemble

Crafting tip: In addition to making a simple bouquet, you can also use your burgundy felt ranunculus flowers to make a dark floral crown for your Halloween costume. If you aren’t into a full-on costume, this can be a subtle way to dress up for the day — along with our favorite skeleton earrings!

How to make a Burgundy Felt Ranunculus

  2. Cut out felt according to template using a cutting machine with a rotary blade (recommended) or scissors.
  3. Stretch the center of all of the petals to gently cup them. Depending on the felt, they may stretch more or less.
  4. Cut a slit up each petal (see PDF).
