DIY felt blooming amaryllis bulb

Delightful felt flowers

Our felt amaryllis is made up of three wired flower blooms attached to a wood stem that is stuck into a hand-sewn felt bulb. For a more realistic look, the bulk has cotton twine roots “growing” out the bottom. We recommend the best way to showcase the full flower is with a clear glass vase.

Since this flower grows in a variety of colors, our designer Krista opted for a dusty pink for our felt amaryllis. She then used a pink marker to draw the veins on the petals. Of course you can use whatever felt colors you like best!

Crafting tips: You will need to know how to do a blanket stitch and running stitch to gather the top of the bulb. If you need a refresher on these stitches, make sure to check out our embroidery guide.

How to Make a Felt Amaryllis with Bulb

  1. Gather your craft tools and materials. Then download the felt flower pattern on the right hand side at the top of this post.
  2. Cut out felt according to pattern using a Cricut Maker (optional) or scissors. Our amaryllis has 3 flowers and 4 leaves total.
  3. Cut the full petals in half (if you have not already) and glue a white 24-gauge wire close to the straight edge of the petal. We used white wire for this because lighter color felt is a bit see-through.
  4. Glue the other half on top to cover the wire. Glue down all the edges, on both sides of the petal, and round the tip of the petal with scissors if needed.
