Felt Roses

My neighbor taught me how to make these cool felt roses the other day and she said I could share with all of you!

First you will need a hot glue gun, a piece of felt, a hair clip, a good scissors
First cut the felt into a circle. It does not have to be a perfect circle. Then cut it into a spiral like this. Make sure not to make your spiral to thin, but not to thick.
Then cut the outside edge all the way around the spiral a little wavy so it looks something like this.
Then start with the outermost part of the spiral and start rolling it. The wavy side should be towards the top.
Once you have rolled the whole thing, you will get to the end of the spiral. This part should fit nicely on the bottom. Then you just put some hot glue on the top of the end of the spiral and glue it to the bottom of the rolled part. This should hold the whole thing in place.
And ta-da! You have a super cute felt rose! You can put leaves on it if you want too. I have seen these done on headbands, hair clips, hats, and many other things! See what you can do with a felt rose!
