You may have noticed that we’ve been expanding our selection of DIY felt flowers lately (thanks to our designer Krista). If you’ve been curious about how to make flowers out of felt, we recommend starting with these felt daffodils! They’re a great flower for beginners or for anyone who wants to practice their felt flower-making skills.
If you’re at an intermediate or advanced level, and you want something a bit more challenging, check out our felt tea roses and buds. And of course we have some paper daffodils on the site, too, if you prefer paper flowers!
Let your felt flower skills bloom
We have made a lot of felt flowers over the years, but these are our first felt daffodils! It’s always fun for us to design a new flower and figure out how we can make it easier for you to craft at home. To make this felt flower, you will need the tools and materials we’ve listed here in this post as well as our flower pattern below. You can also add some felt greenery to your bouquet.
If you have a Cricut Maker, you can use it to cut your felt. However, these flowers are very simple to make, so this is an easy one to cut by hand. If you have any questions, just let us know in the comments.
We also encourage you to share your flowers with us—even if these are the first flowers you’ve ever made! You can share your handmade flowers on our Facebook page for members. Or another great way for us and other crafters to see your DIY projects is to use the #MadeWithLia hashtag on your social pages. Enjoy! ~ Lia and team
