While reflecting on our 10-year anniversary and all of the flowers we’ve designed, the anemone is one we’ve made over and over again. It’s such a beautiful, yet simple flower to craft. And though we’ve made many different versions over the years, these felt Japanese anemones are a first!
Since the anemone is one of our favorites, we had to include it as part of our spring craft summit. We streamed or live workshop on April 19th at 11:00am PT. You can watch the replay here!

Go where the wind(flower) takes you
If you’ve made our crepe paper version, then you may know the anemone is often referred to as a windflower. This is due to the flower’s appearance of looking blown open by the wind. To achieve this, we will show you how to shape the petals after assembly to give your felt Japanese anemones a more open, ruffled look.
Along with learning how to make the flowers, our tutorial also shows how to make buds. If you’d like, you can combine buds and blooms on one stem for a bit of a natural wildflower look. For arrangement ideas, we think these felt Japanese anemones would look pretty with a bunch of stems and leaves in a pot, in a vase, or as individual stems in bud vases.
Skill level: Beginner
Crafting tip: Since this felt Japanese anemone is an easier flower with not as many parts, we recommend cutting by hand. That way you can cut petals with a slight irregularity that looks more natural.
