What You'll Need:

  • Easter basket
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Felt sheets in assorted colors

Step 1: Make Mums

Cut a 2-inch strip along the long edge of a sheet of felt. Fold felt in half, lenghtwise. Apply a strip of hot glue along bottom. Fold the piece in half along your fold line and secure with the hot glue. Next, cut 1/4-inch slits along entire lenght of felt. Make sure not to cut all the way through, leave a little room along bottom.

Step 2: Cut Petals

To build the flower bud, roll the felt from one end to the other and add glue while you roll! Secure end with tab of hot glue. You can make these flowers as large or as small as you like. Simply use a longer piece of felt. 

Step 3: Make Ranunculus

To create a ranunculus flower, cut a 2-inch circle out of felt. Then, cut a swirl into the circle, starting at the edge, ending in the middle. Start rolling the felt from the middle of the circle, gluing along the way. Secure with glue at the end.

Step 4: Cut Leaves

Cut leaves out of green felt. It's good to have different leaf shapes and sizes. Keep the cuts rough and organic to mimic real leaves. 

Try making a felt peony. 

Step 5: Glue on Flowers

Glue flowers on the basket with hot glue. Start with blooms on bottom of handle, and then create a bunch of flowers. It's easier to start with your largest flowers and fill in around them. Glue on leaves under the flowers.
