Eager for signs of spring? While you’re waiting for the flowers outside to bloom, we recommend making your own flowers come to life in the meantime! Crocus flowers are typically one of the first flowers to pop up during springtime. And in mild regions, they can bloom as early as January or February. We’ve crafted crepe paper crocuses once before. So today our designer Krista is using felt! These felt crocus flowers are so pretty and simple to make. And you can craft them yourself in just 12 steps.
One of the best things about making your favorite plants out of felt is that they can last forever. Also, since Crocus flowers don’t have a stem, they’re not the type of flower you would cut and bring inside anyway. So by crafting these flowers out of felt or paper, you can enjoy them indoors for as long as you’d like.
If you have a Cricut Maker, you can use our SVG file below to cut our flower pattern out of felt. However, this one is easy enough to cut by hand. When you have everything ready to go, just follow our step-by-step tutorial below to make your own felt crocus flowers.
