Do you remember these flower wands? I promised a tutorial showing how to make the roses and here it is! Only way better then I had planned. I connected with a new sponsor & source for the most incredible wool felt ever, Janet of Felt on the Fly. I suggested that I make readers a tutorial using her felt and she sent me a gorgeous “blossom” color way-I had never used merino felt before and am head over heels in love now. I don’t know if I can go back to wool felt now-I want a studio filled with merino…but then you might never see me again!

I love felt and flowers but I wanted to take this tutorial up a notch. Not just for kids, this rose is grown up enough for a wedding, special gift or to decorate a room. Get lost browsing Felt on the Fly’s color palettes-there is enough inspiration for a whole garden of blossoms.

To make this long stem rose start by downloading the illustrated template by clicking here & printing out the PDF.

Then follow these step by step instructions (just click on the picture to see a bigger image):

How about you? Who will you give a rose to this summer? Which colors of felt would you choose? I would love to know if you make some roses of your own-tell in the comments!
