I adore these felted flowers and they are so easy to make. Here's what you need in addition to a stove and a dryer:
Step 1: Roll yarn (it needs to be 100% wool) into a little ball. Be sure to tie it up tight so it won't come apart.
Step 2: Add a little dish soap (about 1tablespoon) to a pot of water and bring to a boil. Toss your yarn balls into the pot and stir.
Step 4: After about 45 minutes, put your yarn balls into the dryer and dry on high heat. They will come out looking like this:
Step 5: Attach the felted ball to a stem. I used flower stems from Artco Crafts. When I bought them they had a plastic flower attached to the top, which I cut off. These stems are great because they have wire inside, making them easy to attach.

HI-this is Alison. I wanted to comment on this post because I think these flowers that Molly made are sooooo cute! I have seen them in person and I can't wait to make them for my house. My daughter Camden wants them in pink, green, and blue for her room.ReplyDelete

Those are adorable. I do a lot of wet felting and needle felting with roving, never with spun wool. It looks beautiful. Those flowers look like the field of flowers in Horton Hears a Who. :-)ReplyDelete

Thanks for sharing. I need to go buy wool yarn and get started on Valentine flowers for all the women in my life!!! What fun!ReplyDelete
What an awesome idea! When I first saw them in the pitcher, they reminded me of Allium stems. With the right color yarn, you could easily duplicate the look of Allium. Oooh, I've got to try this out!ReplyDelete
