We have some new felt flowers for you today! Our designer Krista made out first-ever felt lavender flowers last month. And today she has created a DIY tutorial for felt bluebells.

These felt flowers are somewhere between a beginner and an intermediate project — mostly because the bluebells are smaller flower buds that require a little bit more care than some of our other beginner felt flowers. Also, if you’re new to working with floral tape and attaching flowers to floral wire, then this would be considered more of an intermediate project for you.

Calling all flower makers

Bluebells are a dainty enchanted flower often associated with fairies. The story is that when a bluebell rings, it calls a gathering of fairies. But in our case, we are calling all crafters to keep learning, growing, and sharing what you make. That’s what our site is all about and what we aim to help you do. So if you’re ready to make these felt bluebells, we have listed everything you need and included the pattern and instructions below.

One tip we have for you: Working with small flowers and handling felt with floral tape can be a bit of a struggle. So make sure to wash your hands of wax now and then, and be careful when handling the felt when assembling the stem!

How to Make Felt Bluebells

  1. Gather your craft tools and materials. Then download the flower pattern below.
  2. Cut out felt according to the pattern using detail scissors (recommended) or a Cricut Maker (optional). We cut enough for about 6 flowers per bluebell stem and 1-2 leaves.
  3. Glue and wrap the fringed stamen piece around a 24-gauge floral wire, about 5″ long.
  4. Stretch out the flower piece in the middle to form a slightly cupped shape (it may be easier/harder depending on the quality of felt used and amount of stretch. Even a little bit of a cupped shape helps).
