What You'll Need

  • Felt 
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue

Step 1: Cut squares

To start building your peony, cut several squares in three sizes: small, medium and large. You'll want to make four of each, or 12 squares total. Make the squares as large as you like, depending on the project you'll use them for. For easy folding, the largest square shouldn't be smaller than 2 inches on each side. 

Step 2: Cut petals

After you've cut each of the squares, go back over them and add texture. Cut three to four ridges on each, varying the size and shape of the scallops on each petal -- no two should be the same! To make the gluing process easier, you can also cut the sides inward so they form more of a pointed shape. 

Step 3: Fold and glue

Start building the flower by folding one petal in half and securing with glue. Then, add another glued and folded petal to the bunch, and repeat until you've added each of the petals. For a fuller shape, put the larger petals in the center and use the smaller ones on the outer edges. 

Leftover felt? Try one of these fun projects.
