Spring is in full bloom here and all the flower lined sidewalks make me so happy!
With spring flowers on my mind, I pulled out some felt and decided to craft some up some of my own and make a flower crown.
There’s something so quintessentially spring-y, summery, and girly about wearing flowers in your hair. Amirite?
I started with most of the felt flower tutorials from Something Turquoise and about two flowers in, I decided this was way too much work for one flower crown that may only get worn a few times.
So instead of gluing them or wrapping them directly into the crown, I made a bunch of flower clips that could be clipped into the crown.
That way you can clip them all to the crown,
…or just a few.
Or… just wear a single flower clip.
It’s up to you!
They would even make a pretty table center piece if clipped into a basket somehow. So many possibilities…
A lot of work and thought went into these flowers even though I mostly used existing tutorials.
To help simplify and organize things, I’ve created separate posts that list all the felt and material details, the tutorial links, and some tutorials of my own…
Go HERE for links to felt sources and each tutorial that I used.
Go HERE for a tutorial for the pink and yellow anemone flower.
Go HERE for yarn billy ball flower tutorial.
It is a time intensive craft, but so beautifully satisfying.
Gorgeous! Can I ask where you got your felt and what colors you used?
Thank you Allie! Yes, totally. I am actually typing a post with all those details right now. It should be ready by tomorrow.
You know how sometimes you see something and involuntarily gasp because it’s just so pretty? That was me with this post! Gorgeous!
I love the idea of putting the flowers on clips… I’m looking forward to hearing more about each flower! =)
seriously SO pretty, delia! love the flowers and these photos. Em reaches for a flower clip to complete her look quite often (she wore a faux plumeria that we got years ago in hawaii last night to dinner at grammie and grandpa’s!). looking forward to your tutorials. 🙂
Aww thank you Kristin! 🙂 I’m typing up the details post now!
Delia, this is absolutely gorgeous! I am looking forward to seeing links to where you got your felt (not much variety colorwise at JoAnn’s) and to tutorials. If I had flowers like that I would want to wear them every day (and have matching ones for my toddler). The colors you used are beautiful, and they look especially good with your hair.
Thank you Alison! You are so kind. I know what you mean about the scant selection at Jo-Ann. I had to order my felt online, but it was totally worth it. I’m typing up the details post now! 🙂
Gorgeous Delia! So glad you’re following up with a “details” post. These are stunning.

WOW. Delia… I’m in awe. In sharing my tutorials, my goal is to inspire and it absolutely warms my heart to see that I was able to do that for you, because you took my idea and soared with it. Your flowers are absolutely stunning. Thank you SO much for sharing and for being so kind and generous with your links!
Thank YOU for sharing such fun and inspiring tutorials! Thank you for your kind comment Jen. <3
Thanks Delia! They’re beautiful! I used some of your ideas to make a wreath:
Your wreath is GORGEOUS! Wow! Thanks for sharing it with me!

Wow! I work with felt a lot & I love this idea – it’s gorgeous! Having said that, though, I think, no matter how pretty the flowers are, it’s you who is the star of this post! Stunning! ~M x
Aww…Thank you Meredith! You are so generous and kind.
Linda Manton says
love your ideas for the flowers…colors are beautiful ….where can I purchase felt in such a variety of colors…
Thanks Linda! I included links to the shops I used in the post. See the links associated with the colors I list. You can also search Etsy. There are a plethora of shops that sell felt in all sorts of colors. Look for fiber content. Pure wool is more expensive but often looks the best. The blends look pretty too though. I ended up mixing and match between the two. I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any more questions.
Do you happen to sell these?
I’m sorry, I don’t. I bet you could find someone who does on etsy?
Hi , I am in love with one of your color felt flower palletes . Do you Happen to sell them or have a etsy Shop .
Thank you Nikki! I am sorry to say that I don’t. I like to dabble and share tutorials for a variety of crafts which doesn’t leave me much time to set up a shop for anything other than pdf patterns. I wish I had a more helpful answer for you!
