When deciding which flowers to make for our celestial theme this July, we had to include this variety of viola! These felt viola celestial twilight flowers are a beginner-friendly project that’s simple to cut by hand. Or you can always use a Cricut Maker or Silhouette Cameo 4.
To get started, download our flower pattern at the end of the post. Then follow our tutorial to make your own felt violas.
Soft Celestial Blooms
These delightfully dainty blooms are nearly identical to pansies, but they are even smaller. To make these felt viola celestial twilight flowers, Krista used a few different felt colors in purple, blue, and pink for the top two petal layers and a bright yellow for the third. By following our tutorial you can make this little bouquet fairly quickly and enjoy these pretty pops of color anywhere in your home.

How to Make Felt Viola Celestial Twilight Flowers
- Gather your craft tools and materials. Then download the viola flower pattern below.
- Cut out felt according to the pattern using a Cricut Maker (optional) or scissors. We made viola flowers in two different colorways: Periwinkle, Lavender, Sunshine and Lavender, Sweet Pea, Sunshine. Each bunch of 2-3 flowers has 1-3 leaves.
- Draw lines onto the petals with a purple marker, right where the rounded part starts to extend down. Press out any excess ink onto a scrap piece of paper.
- Bend the end of an 18-gauge floral wire and glue it to the middle of the yellow petal, below the purple marks (see tutorial).

Instead of using a felt marker, we embroidered the inside of the petals. It gave the flower a nice, finished look.
I LOVE that added detail. Embroidery on felt is my favorite.
