We love doing something completely brand-new that has never been done before on our site! Not only is this our first pink lily, but it’s also the first time we have used felt to make this flower. These felt lilies are more of an intermediate project due to all the wires involved in its construction. So if you’re new to making felt flowers, we’d suggest starting with these felt violas or felt California poppies.
To get started, check out our tools and materials list below to see what you need to make these felt lilies. Then download our photo tutorial and flower pattern at the end of the post.
All I Lily Want to Do is Make Flowers
Lilies are a popular flower in most summer gardens and are known for their variety of color and diversity. For these felt lilies, Krista chose to make a couple flowers in two shades of pink felt. She then added more detail to the petals by coloring them with a pink PanPastel and by creating spots with a pink art marker.
Of course you can always play around with the colors and details of your felt lilies. You can also shape them how you want in your arrangement since each petal and leaf is wired. To fill out your flower bouquet a bit more, you can add some felt greenery. As with most flower crafts, we highly recommend using photos of real flowers for reference for accuracy and realism!

How to Make Felt Lilies
- Gather your craft tools and materials. Then download the flower pattern below.
- Cut out felt according to the pattern using a Cricut Maker (optional) or scissors. We made two flower stems in two different colorways: Blush and Rose Quartz. This tutorial shows the bigger flower stem using Blush, made with two flower blooms, one bud, two small leaves and three large leaves.
- Glue the green stamen around the end of a green 18-gauge floral wire.
- Cut the white 24-gauge wire into thirds. Glue the end of the wire between two of the felt pistil pieces. After the glue dries, you can trim around the edges so that they match.
