Hello Everyone!

It’s Judy here with a quick wool felt Jewel flower to add to your fall table.  I always seem to think of little decorations like these at the last minute so quick and easy is important!

Jewel Felt Flower

The flower is made with 4 layers of wool felt cut with a die from Jewel Flowers and Flourishes using Spellbinders Grand Calibur machine.  Wool felt cuts really easy!  I generally make two passes through the Grand Calibur just to be sure all the little areas cut.  Many times one pass is enough.  Each flower has 2 dark layers and 2 lighter layers.  I glued the flowers together with Fabri-Tac glue, stacking from bottom 1 dark, 1 light, another dark and light on top.  I cupped the center as I glued to bring the petals forward rather than just flat.

Napkin band pieces

These are the pieces I used for the napkin band and flower.

The flower center is an upside down button that I covered with a dimensional glue dot.  I also added Fabri-Tac glue over the glue dot and around the edges of the button. Then I pressed it into my jar of Toffee Flower Soft.  I put glue on the flower center spreading it near the petals and placed the button in the center.  Then I pressed the petals up around the button and held it that way until the glue set.  I glued 2 leaves to the back.

The napkin band is a piece of white  burlap glued to a strip of muslin fabric. Velcro can be glued to hold the ends or simply pin it closed.   I glued the flower to the center of the band.  Then I used twine to tie a Kraft tag with stamped verse around the flower.  Easy!

I was on a roll with these flowers!  I added a flower to a name tag, too.  The base is a 3 1/2” square of Kraft card stock folded in half.  I glued a piece of the burlap to the front and added the flower. The tag is tied around the flower.  Instead of a verse, guests names can be written on the tag.  I used a adhesive foam square under the tag to keep it in place.

And because these flowers are so easy!!!  I made another one and fastened it to a candle.  I simply wrapped a strip of burlap around the candle and glued the ends.  Then I tied twine around it.  The flower is fastened with a glue dot towards bottom of flower and glue at top so it tilts upwards a bit.

These flowers are so easy to add just a touch of fall color to your home, especially your Thanksgiving table!

I hope you enjoyed this little project!

Happy Thanksgiving!

and happy creating!

Judy
