Project Details

  • Level:intermediate
  • Time:2 hours

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Cut a 4 inch square from Black felt.
  • 2
    Download and print project template. Following template, begin cutting in a spiral pattern, round and round until you get to the center where you will have a circular shape and stop.
  • 3
    Begin rolling up the spiral from the outside as shown above.
  • 4
    As you keep on rolling, the spiral flower starts to take its natural shape.
  • 5
    Keep on rolling the felt until you get to the last part of the roll. Leave that portion unrolled.
  • 6
    Secure the spiral flower by applying glue to the whole bottom of the roll.
  • 7
    While glue is still wet, gently cover the glued area with the unrolled portion to give the spiral flower a flush flat bottom.
  • 8
    Using a pearl-top pushpin, insert the pin into the center of the top of the spiral.
  • 9
    Take the flower with pin and insert into the Styrofoam sphere. Tip: For extra security add a drop of glue to the bottom of the spiral flower before inserting the flower with pin into the Styrofoam sphere.
  • 10
    Repeat steps 1-9 until Styrofoam sphere is completely covered.
  • 11
    Create a bow from the ribbon as desired.
  • 12
    Cut a length of ribbon suitable for hanging and tie one end to the center knot of bow.
  • 13
    Pin or glue bow to topiary. Trim off any excess.
