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!
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.
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!
and happy creating!
