Double Duty Felt Flower

This craft is great because the end product can be used in two ways -- as an adorable felt flower ring (for a child or an adult) or as a tiny ponytail holder for a little girl with fine hair.

You'll need:
  • Hair Elastic (the small ones -- about the size of a Cheerio
  • Scrap felt
  • Button
  • Scissors
  • Needle & Thread
  • Paper and Pen (to make a template for the flower)

First, cut two tiny flowers out of felt. (Use a paper template to make it easier.)

Second, sew the button onto the middle of one of the flowers, and stitch the two felt pieces together (button side up).

Third, sew the elastic onto the back of the flower.  (For the ring, or fine hair, use a tiny elastic.  But for thicker hair, you can use a bigger elastic.  I have a big one for myself!  :-)

That's it... easy as 1, 2, 3

These are so easy, you could make a bunch for Christmas gifts or for party favors (for a birthday, a shower, or a destination wedding)

  1. I love this! What I love most is that it inexpensive and easy to make, and if my daughter looses it (as she so often does) it won't break teh bank to replace!!! Way to go! Cute blog too!

  2. these are so lovely - I fancy one myself!

  3. I was just gearing up to make some of these myself. I was going to use elastic for the ring, but your idea is MUCH better! Thanks for sharing!

  4. So adorable!! I love that you made it into a ring (and pony holder)!

  5. That is so stinkin' cute! How fun!

  6. That is really cute! I will have to make some. Thanks for the tutorial.
