In addition to our Jumbo Frosted Hydrangeas and Crepe Paper Dogwood Branches, we bring you these felt ferns and fiddle heads. As part of our Pacific Northwestern bouquet for Cricut, these felt pieces add the perfect amount of lush greenery to the mix. Download and print our templates, and follow our simple step-by-step photo tutorial to bring your very own ferns and fiddle heads to life today!
Tools & Materials
- Low-Temp Hot Glue Gun
- Green Paper Covered Floral Wire – 18 gauge
- Art Marker
- Gather the tools and materials listed above.
- Cut your felt according to the pattern. Make the fern as tall or as short as you want by adding or reducing the amount of leaves.
- Fringe each felt piece at an angle starting at the top, on both sides. For the shorter fern leaves, make smaller snips. Do not cut all the way to the base — you will need it to glue around the wire later.
- Gently pull on the tip of the fern leaves to stretch out the fringe. Round out the edges near the tip.
- Glue the top piece around the end of a length of floral wire. Wrap two of the smallest fringed pieces around the wire just under the top and glue.
- Continue wrapping the base of the fern pieces around the wire and gluing on the backside, smallest to largest, alternating sides. Clip the bases a bit more to help create a smoother graduated look.
- Slightly bend the wire. You can color the paper wire with a marker to match the felt better.
- To make a fiddlehead: glue a length of floral wire to the edge of a sheet of felt. Leave a little bit of extra felt at the top.
- Next, cut the felt about 1” wide. Roll and glue this felt strip around the wire. Trim off any excess glue — use a matching marker to hide any glue that shows.
- Use pliers to curl your fiddlehead.
We used Benzie Design’s Fern, but feel free to experiment with other shades of green! All cut on the Cricut Maker. And for our marker, we used Copic in Olive G99, but again, play around with colors of your choosing.
