Lines Across: Fall Felt Flower Centerpiece

Fall Felt Flower Centerpiece

Fall Felt Flower Centerpiece Tutorial


It's still burning hot in Florida, but I'm ready to start thinking about the Fall. I love everything about Fall {or whatever you call October and November around here}, especially the beautiful colors.

What I used:

7 sheets of felt
hot glue gun
4 inch Styrofoam ball
25-30 pins
small flower pot

What I did:

1. Make a LOT of felt flowers. I estimated that I would need 18, but I ended out using 27. I used a CD to trace the circles. I tried to keep the size and shape of all of the roses very similar. I was able to make 4 flowers per sheet of felt.
{Look HERE for my simple felt flower tutorial} 


2. Using a hot glue gun, start attaching the roses to the ball. I noticed that if you put the hot glue directly on the Styrofoam it melted it a little bit. I first put the glue on the back of the rose and waited for 5 to 10 seconds.


3. Add a pin to the center of each flower {for extra support and because they are cute}.


4. I started with one flower and then surrounded it with 6. This pattern continues around the sphere. However it doesn't need to be that precise. Another good idea would be to spray paint the Styrofoam before adding the roses since a little bit of color will show through.


5. Leave the bottom empty. Set the sphere on top of the flower pot.




One great thing about this project is that if you ever get tired of it, or don't want to store it after fall is over, you can pull the flowers off and use them in many other projects.

  30. I am in love!! You can change out the colors to suit your mood! Be careful which type of spray paint you use... it can melt the styrofoam.
