Easy Felt Flower DIY
Felt Flowers With Lollipops
First gather up the supplies for the flower project. Then follow the directions listed below. For this project we did receive the lollipops for free, and participated in #MagicofSpring Our craft project, and thoughts, and words are all our own.
- Wood Dowels approx. 6 inches
- Felt Craft Pack in Pastel Colors / Felt
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Strong tape or duct tape
- Wire (optional)
- Dum Dums Lollipops
Directions for making felt flowers
- Directions for the flower lollipop
Start out by cutting out shapes of flower petals from the felt. You want them larger than the lollipops and you will need about 6 per flower minimum. Also cut out two to three leaves from the felt. An easy way to cut leaves is by cutting a rectangle and going point to point on the diagonal, keeping the center larger than either side to create the leaf shape.
Next get at least three lollipops and you will tape them together with the wood dowel. I reinforced mine with wire as I wanted mine to last longer and be more durable you could skip this step but, they may not hold together as well.
Then you’ll begin to hot glue the petals onto the sticks just below the lollipops. Do this step all the way around until it looks like a flower.
Next use a block of Styrofoam, mason jar or place into a vase while you continue making more.
When you get a whole bunch of felt flowers with lollipops made you can have the kids plant magic jelly beans (seeds) and later go to the garden to see the flowers that popped up. The next morning, after you put them into your garden.
Some other spring crafts ideas I usually do is set up a candy bowl or two full of Dum Dums, and jelly beans in bags for the kids. Here’s our video of our little pop up garden with #TheMagicOfSpring
With so many spring gatherings I enjoy making my jelly bean cake with two colors (tutorial) as a treat for the spring festivities for the family. I also like creating spring banners to make things more festive. Then we enjoy a fun garden party that includes painting eggs along with other activities. What activities or ways do you enjoy celebrating Easter?
When I was making the tutorial for my grand kids they couldn’t resist trying to make their own. To keep them busy I cut out felt oval shapes of three sizes of various colors and cut a tiny slit in the center then I let them slide the lollipop stick down the slit to add them to the base of their lollipop for their own flower lollipop.
They’d take it off to eat the lollipop, and make another lollipop flower.
