So as a part of the design for Steel Mags were these giant magnolia branches.
On the giant branches were giant magnolia flowers. Which I was to make out of felt.
They looked awesome and ranged from 1 foot to 3 feet in size and I needed to make thirty of them.
Here's how it went.
|Start with whatever color craft felt you'd like. I used a whole bolt of fabric for 30 flowers.|
|Cut three squares of fabric per flower, decreasing in size by a few inches or less depending on the size of your flowers.|
|Cut into flower petal-esque shapes and add extra color and or shadow.|
|Stretch the felt to create petal magic.|
|Hot glue down the center of each petal and pinch the seam until set.|
|Glue top layer to middle layer to bottom layer, alternating where the petals fall. Glue a small rolled up scrap into the center of the flower.|
|For myself, I repeated this 30 times.|
|I then painted the branches.|
|And then attached the flowers to the branch.|
