bouquet
May 25, 2018

Hoooraaay! It’s finally Friday and that means that I finally get to share this weeks gorgeous, DIY felt flower wedding bouquet and boutonneires with you! It’s been a few months in the making but creating these flowers by cutting them with my Cricut Maker instead of by hand, significantly cut down the time compared to the last two bouquets I created. The last bouquet took me about 20 hours over the course of a week and a half to complete and I had a few blisters from cutting, even while using my good scissors. This bouquet took me about 8 hours over 3 days, major difference. In our shop we’ve released all our past felt flower designs as Cricut .SVG cut files, including a special bundle for this entire bouquet. Stop by the shop to purchase your felt flower patterns today!


In talking about handmade flowers – we are singing the praises of felt. Unlike paper, felt flowers are thick, sturdy and can withstand all that your wedding day could possibly throw at them. Paper can rip and crumple in a flash – but not felt! There is something so old-school crafty about felt… and I just love it. So without further ado, here is this weeks absolutely beautiful – felt flower wedding bouquet.

Felt

For this felt flower bouquet I used Benzie Design Wool Felt in the colors listed below, but feel free to use any colors you’d like!

Start Building

I started this bouquet by holding one of each large flower and then continued to add from there. Once you get to a place where you are happy with the way things look – wrap with a piece of floral wire to secure and keep building.

Keep Adding

Keep adding more flowers, wrapping with wire and arranging your pretty felt blooms until you’re happy with your bouquet.

Finish The Stems

Wrap the section of wire that you’ll be holding with a piece of green felt and secure with hot glue. Once your arrangement is complete, trim all the wire stems to match.

Add Ribbons

I covered the green felt with this dusty gray/blue velvet ribbon and then added a large bow to finish. This step is totally up to you. Bow or no bow, velvet ribbon or silk ribbon, long streamers or short strands… it’s your choice!
