Rolled Felt Flower Ring How-To

Isn't this flower ring fun?! And it's pretty simple to make with a little know-how!

Supplies needed:
  • Small piece of felt
  • Sharp scissors
  • Hot Glue gun & glue
  • E6000 glue
  • Ring blank
  1. Cut out a circle. The size will determine the size of your flower. My circle was about 2" in diameter. You can use a die-cut if you want a perfect circle, but cutting by hand also works (that's what I did).
  2. Cut your circle into a spiral, as shown below. The width of the spiral determines the depth of the flower (how far it will stick up off your finger). I cut mine about between 1/8 and 1/4" all the way around. 

3. Start rolling. Put a dot of glue every so often to keep it in place.
(I rolled starting from the center, but you can also roll starting from the outside and use the center of the spiral as a base for your flower. Find the way that works best for you.)

4. When you are finished rolling, hot glue the end in place.
5. Add a rhinestone center to your flower (or anything else your heart desires!).

6. To secure the flower to the ring, use E6000 glue. This works best on metal. If you are using the flower for another craft project (that doesn't include metal), E6000 is not necessary.

Happy crafting!
