handmade felt marigold flowers

Merry Marigolds

Did you know that looking at bright colors can improve your mood? For our felt marigold flowers, we chose to make them in three orangey hues from our online shop. Each petal is pinched and glued to give the flower their signature fluffy round look, which we will show you how to do in our tutorial.

Style them in a pretty farmhouse pitcher vase for the season or in an arrangement for Halloween or Day of the Dead celebrations. If you’d like to copy our arrangement, you can pair your felt marigold blooms with our DIY pussy willow branches.

How to Make a Felt Marigold

  1. Gather your craft tools and materials. Then download the flower pattern on the right hand side at the top of this post.
  2. Cut out felt according to pattern using a cutting machine (optional) or scissors.
  3. Glue a 24-gauge floral wire down the stem of a felt leaf.
  4. Glue and wrap the edges of felt around the wire. Cover up any glue that may show with a matching green marker. Spray one side of the leaf with a fabric stiffening spray and let dry.
