Felt Carnation tutorial

Begin by cutting out five circles of felt. The circles do not need to be identical, but should be about the same size. For mine, I used circles that were about 3 inches wide.

Fold your first circle twice, so that the felt is quartered.

Place a stitch at the base of the circle to hold it in place. Repeat three more times.

Hold two of the folded circles together and stitch through the middle. This is the center of your carnation.

Fold each of your two remaining circles in half, and join them in the center to the rest of the felt. You should stitch through the backside so that the 2 back pieces are well attached.

Turn your flower over and fluff out the petals. Your carnation is now complete. 

This is part 2 of your floral wreath. In part 3 we’ll put all the pieces together and finish your wreath.
