Sharing our flower designs in paper and felt is top of our “things we love to do” list. We get a kick out of designing new patterns and finding new ways to make something glorious. Our DIY felt flower rose bouquet was a little while in the making but we got there, and we are super-excited to share this one with you! Created using a selection of felt roses, pretty green felt foliage and soft white billy balls, our felt flower bouquet is surprisingly easy to make at home. It makes a gorgeous wedding bouquet or a unique floral arrangement for your home that will last year round!
Today we are sharing the pattern and tutorial for the felt roses. Begin by downloading the PDF below which contains a list of materials as well as the pattern for the flowers. Choose good quality wool felts in Cranberry, English Rose, White, Juniper and Moss and take your time to cut the pattern out before following our step-by-step tutorial below. We find it best to use a low temperature glue gun to assemble our felt flowers – it makes the project quick and easy and will hold your felt flowers strong for years to come! Our second pro-tip would be to fold and secure some of the petal edges over to create that beautiful curled effect that you see in real roses. Simple details like this add depth and dimension to your felt flower, making it look altogether more realistic. Come back tomorrow for the pattern and tutorial for those cute felt leaves and billy ball buds!

Too late I already did a big batch cut to make 6 of the Roses different colors with extra leaves cut. I realized you did not have instructions on how the smaller leaves were used. I was hoping it was just an oversight. I guess I will need to get creative and use them. I am working on a garland so I will figure some thing out.
Mixing the leaf sizes will look good even if you just follow the large leaf steps.
Thanks for letting me know about the Wire gauge. Can you respond to this question also?
What is the Leaf x1 and Leaf x4 supposed to be used for? Maybe I am missing something, but I do not see it in the instructions.
Hi Laura. I think we might retire that rose and exchange it for this one: https://liagriffith.com/felt-tea-roses-and-buds/
It was designed quite a while back by someone who is no longer with us, so it is hard to know what she intended. If you have not cut your felt yet, the newer version is super clear. 😉
What gauge wire is used for this flower. Also, what are the Leaf x1 and Leaf x4 supposed to be used for? Maybe I am missing something, but I do not see it in the instructions.
This is an older project, so we had not started listing tools and materials as we do now. This flower stem is an 18-gauge wire. 🙂
These are beautiful! What width are the flowers when finished and how much felt is needed to do one flower? I want to make sure I have the right amount of felt to get started.
The flowers are about 4″ wide, and a 9×12 sheet of each color will be plenty 🙂
The roses are beautiful! How did you fold down the top edges of the petals??
Thanks Amy! We glued them down. Check out the photo tutorial in the post for an example 🙂

Thank you for the lovely Rose pattern. I am going to use this for my Daughters wedding table decorations.
I have already made her bouquet with rolled roses in felt so this will complement the over all look.
Wow that sounds beautiful!
[…] are the most popular around and can be used for just about every occasion. While Lia Griffith makes several types of felt flowers, her roses are by far my favorite take on the felt rose by […]
Are the felt roses available in SVG? Thank you for sharing your wonderful talents.
The felt roses are only available in PDF. The Cricut is not able to cut felt completely accurately, so I always hand cut my felt projects 🙂
How beautiful 🙂
Thank you so much for the tutorial!!
Thank you! I am glad you like them!
Superb! So beautiful and realistic looking. Think anybody would be fooled to think these are real. You guys are stars all the way. I was going to ask about the leaf stems and white buds but you answered that one at end of text. Thank you. I have something more to look forward to when I get on tomorrow.
Am working on my gallery wall, pretty much dismantled it for holidays and now want to put up different items. Found an old mirror had since KY so decided to use that one for while anyway. Have white wicker mirror but thought would save that one for Spring/Summer looks.
Now to find frames in my stash to put some Inspirational quotes in. Need to get another frame with openings for smaller photos of Grand kids, had one but dropped it before holidays so it’s no longer usable doggone it.
Boy is it dreary here, snow sky, makes it so dark in house, opening curtains/blinds for some light. Did you ever get any snow there? Seems to be weird unusual weather all over country. Not as cold here this winter so far. Have great day everybody. Fantastic projects as always.
Thank you!! We did get some snow a couple weeks ago! It turned so icy, the whole city had to shut down for a day or two. It is so dark here today too. I’m dreaming of sunshine. Good luck with you gallery wall!!
