I was pretty excited to see metal dies that cut fabric! I love adding texture and dimension to my projects. A big trend in DIY decorating right now are felt flowers. They are used on fabric banners, hair accessories and arranged in containers. I love the cozy texture of felt! I wanted to see how well these dies performed with felt with this DIY felt flower arrangement.
- Dimensions Wool Felt (I used yellow, white, olive green, red, yellow, teal and charcoal)
- 3D Threaders Rose Flower Die
- 3D Threaders Daisy Flower Die
- Threaders Leaf Fabric Dies
- Galvanized Bucket
- Cloth Covered Floral Wire
- Coffee Mug Foam Insert
- 7mm Black Pom Poms
- Spanish Craft Moss
- Dual-Temperature Glue Gun
Trim your sheets of wool felt to fit the metal fabric dies. Place your dies on your die cut machine. I arranged multiple elements where I could to conserve my “crank the dies through the machine” energy.
Remove the cut pieces from the surrounding (excess) felt. Save your scrap pieces for later.
Continue this process to create multiple flowers and leaves.
When your flowers are finished, add wire stems.
Loop one end of your cloth wrapped floral wire.
Add some foam to your chosen container.
Begin arranging the flowers however you like. Vary height, and color. The wire stems will allow you to manipulate the flowers quite a bit.
Dies that easily cut fabric and felt have opened up a whole new world of crafting possibilities for me!
I hope you are inspired as well.
