Hi everyone, this month we have a great Mother's Day inspired project, a hanging rose decoration.
You will need: 2 sheets pale pink felt, 2 sheets hot pink felt, 1 sheet green felt, hot glue gun, hoop, buttons / beads / stick on gems /sequins for centres etc wire, bakers twine or embroidery floss for hanging.
Step 1: Draw a spiral on a piece of paper and use it as a template for the felt, cut out your felt spirals, and freehand cut some green felt leaves.
Step 2: Put a pin in the spiral (see picture) curl up the spiral to create your rose and glue in place. I made 4 different sizes of rose in the 2 different colours of felt.
Step 3: Glue on leaves, add beads or sequins to embellish the roses.
Step 4: Thread your roses onto your wire or bakers twine. I created 4 different strings for the hanging decoration.
Step 5: Cover your hoop in felt, connect your strings of roses on, and create a wire hanging piece for the top!
