Christmas Chrysanthemums

These felt chrysanthemums would fit in perfectly with your Christmas decor. Or you can use them as winter decor once you have taken your decorations down. We made these flowers using our new Wild Currant felt, which is a beautiful color to use this time of year. 

What makes these felt chrysanthemums so striking are the delicate petals — carefully curled by hand after the flower is assembled and held in place with a fabric stiffening spray. We will show you how to do this in our photo tutorial below. Just follow along and be sure to let us know if you have any questions!

How to Make Felt Chrysanthemums

  1. Gather your craft tools and materials. Then download the flower pattern on the right hand side at the top of this post.
  2. Cut out felt according to pattern using a Cricut Maker (recommended) or scissors.
  3. Wrap and glue the rectangular piece around the end of an 18-gauge floral wire.
  4. Starting with the smaller petal strip, wrap and glue it around the felt center. Glue it so the bottom edge wraps around the base the flower center, with the tips glued down in the middle where they meet.
