All throughout this week, we’ve been showing you how to craft with felt to create gorgeous flowers and greenery. Now we have our incredible hibiscus flower! Exquisitely detailed (while at the same time super easy to make), this hibiscus should give your home the final touches on its felt florals.
All you have to do is gather the tools and materials, then download the SVG or PDF templates. Lastly, follow the step-by-step instructions below or download them for future use. Or, for more of a hands-on help, check out our video from our earlier article. Happy felting!

- Gather the tools and materials listed above.
- Cut your felt according to the pattern at the bottom of the post. Finely fringe the yellow piece for the stamen and the pink piece for the stamen 4 times. Use pinking shears on the green half circle on the curved side.
- Color the inner parts of the hibiscus petals with pink marker, dabbing excess ink off on a piece of scrap paper. Color the fringed end of the pink stamen on both sides.
- Wrap the pink stamen center around the end of a length of green cloth wire tightly and glue.
- Wrap and glue the yellow fringed stamen around the center, just below the fringe of the pink piece, about two times. Ruffle the fringe outward.
- Color the base of the center piece with a pink marker.
- Space out and glue the petals evenly from the center of the flower, slightly overlapping each piece. Bend each petal outward.
- Form the green half circle into a cone and glue. Slip the end of the floral wire through the hole at the bottom and glue to the base of the flower.
- Glue the hibiscus leaves to the ends of more floral wires and bend.
- To add more to your felt hibiscus arrangement, you can make a palm leaf by wrapping and gluing the base of the skinny palm leaves around a length of floral wire, alternating sides.
