Felt flowers by Em age 8

Today I’m looking after my niece who is a girly girl and loves her accessories, after a root through some of my things she decided she wanted to learn how to make felt roses. A nice easy project to teach her.

Using my favourite craft toy, my hot glue gun, we glued the circle to the bottom of the flower to secure the swirl, then we glued a hairband to it before securing with another scrap of felt.
