What You'll Need

- Hot glue
Step 1: Cut felt
Start by cutting the pattern's large circle shape out of felt, and then cut a curved wavy spiral. Start from the outside and cut toward the middle, curving the cut line but keeping the line relatively the same width the entire way through.
Step 2: Roll the felt
Starting from the outside of the spiral, wrap the felt into a tight spiral. Add glue when necessary to keep the spiraled felt in place as you're wrapping. Continue until you're almost to the end of the spiral.
Step 3: Secure the base
To finish the rose, wrap the very end of the spiral underneath the rolled flower. This creates a base and hides the end of the spiral, leaving a pretty leaf pattern all the way around the flower's edges -- plus, no glue will be visible! The base is also a good place to add hot glue when you're securing the felt roses to another project!
