First blooms are the most encouraging sign of spring. This year I'm not waiting for nature, I'm forcing my own blooms in the basement (with felt, of course).
This tutorial is very simple and the end result is beautiful.
Felt (baby pink)
*I found a branch that had buds. This is where I attached the felt blossoms.
The first thing you need to do is cut a flower shape out of felt. Using two sizes helps to create the effect that the branch is really blooming.
Then, put a dab of glue in the center of the flower and fold it in half. Next, fold the flower in half again and add a bead of glue - this time wrap the center line around the branch bud.
Start with the smallest flowers at the bottom and work your way up to the tip of the branch. I even doubled up a few at the very top of my massive branch.
