As you may have noticed, I've been into the felt flower thing this past week. And really into the fact that I'm using up my stash of acrylic craft felt, all the while bringing joy to friends and neighbors who have been the recipients of my crafty doings!
Yesterday I shared with you the pom pom flower arrangements here, that I made to adorn tables at a recent baby naming/bris celebration, though I didn't mention that I actually made some other things too! You see, I just didn't think that pom pom flowers would be so appropriate sitting on the head table in front of some very honorable guests. And in any case, high arrangements really aren't appropriate on such a table. Sooooo, out came the felt and some boy-appropriate colors, and baby boy rose bud arrangments were born!
I was working very quickly and also intentionally tried to make large flowers that weren't too perfect looking, so do keep that in mind if you check out the tutorials. For a complete tutorial on how to make a felt rosebud bouquet, see my post from last year here. For a tutorial on how to make large loopy roses, see my post here. And make sure to have enough felt on hand so you don't end up with too many green ones at the bottom, as I did....c'est la vie when you're using what you have on hand, and working quickly!
Wouldn't this be so cute with a little train track running around it, you know to play up the boy factor just a bit? Or with a cute little flag or cupcake topper poking out of the top ? Convinced?
