The last time we made felt daisies were a few years ago, so we figured it was time for an updated (and more advanced) version. If you’d like, you can still find the tutorial for these simpler daisies on our site. Otherwise, skip on down to the tools and materials list below to see what you need for our felt gerbera daisies that Krista designed.
After checking out the supplies list, be sure to download the flower pattern and step-by-step tutorial at the end of the post.
All the Single Daisies
After wrapping the stamen around your wire, you will be gluing single petals one at a time to create the lovely, fanned-out look that these felt gerbera daisies have. Since there are so many little pieces with intricate cuts, we recommend using a cutting machine to help you make this flower. Otherwise, you can always cut everything by hand using detail scissors.
When you’re done crafting your felt daisies, you can place a few of them in a vase or a watering can like we did. We’d love to see your version of these flowers, so be sure to post photos on our crafters community page or use the hashtag #MadeWithLia on Instagram.

Great thanks. I am just starting the assembly now. Looking forward to seeing the completed flower they are so beautiful.
I was wondering why you would add the thick stem to the 18″ stem instead of just using the thick stem by itself to attach the flower?
Or, combining both stems when you are attaching the flower?
I think that would work just as well. 🙂

Good morning, ladies, Happy New Year! I’m getting ready to make a purchase and I was wondering how it is that we get coupons to shop at your site?

Is there a tutorial that shows you how and when to use the Stiffen spray on felt. some of mine are limp . Love the colors.
We do not have a tutorial for that, but Krista is great about indicating when she uses is on what parts of the project in her tutorials.
