These adorable tulips are made out of fabric but require no sewing at all! It is a really fun and simple DIY project that you can try over the week. You can display it in your house, give it as a gift, or even sell it. Simply follow these instructions by OnlineFabricStore on YouTube.
First off, download and print out the pattern template, then cut each piece out before tracing them to the felt. Using sharp scissors, cut out the felt accordingly. Add some extra detail on each petal using colored markers if you want. Dab a small amount of glue along the upper half and right at the center of each petal. Fold and pinch the petal, then spread it open while still pinching the center, and let it dry completely. Repeat the process on another set of petals. To make the flower’s center, grab the smallest petal pattern, then attach one side of the petal to the other side of the petal right next to it using hot glue. Continue to glue the adjacent halves of the petal together until you’ve reached the desired shape. Insert a piece of floral wire at the bottom of the shaped petals, then glue it in place. Wrap a small rectangular piece of felt around it, then glue it in place.
For the stamen of the flower, grab the felt that is shaped like a toothbrush, then glue the “bristle” end next to the end of the rectangular felt piece wrapped around the bottom of the stigma. Wrap it until the 6 spikes surround the center and secure it with hot glue. To create the stamen of the tulip, take the toothbrush-shaped felt and glue the “bristle” end next to the end of the last piece. Wrap it until the 6 spikes surround the center and glue. Continue to wrap the rest of the piece and glue the end. Insert the inner petal piece through the end of the wire and slide it upward until it reaches the base of the flower’s center, secure them with hot glue. Insert the other piece of petal and position it so that its petals are covering the spaces in between the inner layer. Insert the second piece of wire, then twist them together. Cover them with a piece of green felt and secure them with hot glue. Attach the leaves on each side of the stem at alternate heights.
