Making the woodland felt puppets a few weeks ago reminded me how much I love working with felt. I have had this super simple felt flower idea swirling in my head since that post, so now I am finally getting a chance to share it! This DIY carnation is so easy to make that you can even use it as a craft project for kids. These felt flowers make a great gift topper, a colorful bracelet, a sweet flower to decorate your hair or to clip onto your shoes for an extra touch. The sky is the limit, so keep a few around in your favorite colors to accessorize any outfit for any season. Download and print the felt DIY carnation template below. You will only find a PDF template for this craft because I always prefer hand cutting my felt rather than trying to use my cutting machine.

Another tip I like to use is to print the template onto a card stock so I can reuse it for future flowers. You can follow the tutorial below for this fun little craft project. Enjoy! ~ Lia
