Project Details

  • Level:intermediate
  • Time:1 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use cutters and cut the shank off of the back of the Autumn Leaves buttons. Then start gluing leaves to edge of basket/bowl. (Tip: though not required, layering leaves on top of each other gives a nice dynamic.)
  • 2
    Download and print project template. Cut ten, 2-inch pieces of ribbon. Cut them in petal shape provided on the template. Burn edge so it does not fray and starts to curl like flower petals do. Do this to all petals. For second layer of petal cut seven, 1-1/2 inch pieces of ribbon and repeat what you did with the 2 inch pieces.
  • 3
    Cut out a 2 inch circle from your felt. Glue your petals onto the felt, making sure to overlap and spiral around the circle to fill the entire piece of felt so you do not see it. Continue layering flower to your liking. Glue Fall Blooms, Fall Medley or other buttons you chose to center of flower to finish.
  • 4
    Cut out 2-inch diameter circle with felt. Take lace and begin gluing onto outside rim of felt circle. Continue to glue and swirl lace into circle. Glue Fall Blooms, Fall Medley or other buttons you chose to center of flower to finish.
  • 5
    Glue all flowers onto Styrofoam ball. (Option: add buttons to the centers of flowers)
  • 6
    Place Styrofoam ball into bowl or basket.
