Wool felt flowers?

(I realize this is the scrapbooking board but it is a lot more active than the crafting board.)

Has anyone made them? Any tips? I have found a couple of online tutorials but I am not finding as many as I thought I would. I really love the ones that look like a bunch of loops.

Photobucket

I did find this one. It's great but I would also like to learn how to make some like in the picture above.

Isn't it? I think I *might* know how they did it. Maybe I should just experiment a little and see if I can figure it out. I bought some yarn, a wreath and some felt today! Biggrin

Love those wreaths! I've seen some on blogs before, and I remember seeing a tutorial on how the wreaths are made, but not that specific flower you're talking about.

Please share pictures of your wreath when it's finished!!

here are some...not sure if they have the style you like best but it is somewhere to start and you could tweak it to be your own

Thank you so much! I did finally ask the etsy seller if she would share how she learned her technique and she was very generous to send me a link. Biggrin

I like looking at as many tutorials as possible though. Everyone has their own unique way of doing things.

Wow, awesome! I would have never guessed that's how those flowers are made. I need to make one of these wreaths some day! Winding all of that yarn doesn't look like fun! LOL

I love the rosette like ones on the wreath. I have been meaning to try some felt flowers but I haven't gotten around to much. I did make these though I haven't done anything with them since:

They have the loops, but I put burlap wrapped buttons for the centers and they came out pretty cute.

I also made a wreath out of fabric (not felt) rosettes:

The picture isn't a great one though. I used this tutorial for those.

I will have to check out the links you posted, maybe that will get my butt in gear on my own projects.
