This super simple Felt Flower Bunting was easy enough to make that my 5 year old daughter was able to help. She always loves when she gets to use a needle and thread! Plus she was really proud when she saw it hanging on her bed when she finally saw her Mermaid Room.
To make your own DIY Felt Flower Bunting you will need:
Large Crochet Needle
Optional: Cricut Explore and Fabric Interfacing
I used my Cricut Explore to cut the flowers for this project – it gave me perfect flowers and took less time than if I handcut these. However, hand cutting is totally possible for this!
To create the flowers with the Explore:
Iron fabric interfacing onto the back of the felt following the directions on the package.
Place the felt, interfacing side down, onto a Cricut mat.
Set the Cricut Dial to Custom and in the cut menu, select Felt and start cutting.
Insert the needle through the back of the flower, circle and through the button. Go back through the other hole and down through the circle and flower. Pull the yarn all the way until you have your flower towards the end of the yarn.
That’s it! String as many as you want and then hang in a room, for party decor or whatever else you can think up!
