I cannot remember where I first saw how to make this, so I apologize for not giving credit where credit is due. I used this flower in the Fall right after I got these 2 zebra chairs for my anniversary (thanks honey!!). Now that it is Winter, I wanted to change the color scheme a bit. With the beauty of a safety pin, I can change out the pillow decor very quickly! Here are some pictures showing how I created my grey flower.
What you need:
Scrap of heavy weight fabric - I used canvas I found in the clearance bin at Hobby Lobby.
Plate - I used a salad plate
Felt in color of your choosing
Low temp hot glue - I promise, you WANT low-temp glue!!!! Don't ask.
Embellishment if wanted
Trace your plate onto canvas
Trace circles onto felt (use a glass) or free hand them like I did. Cuz that's how I roll!
Cut out circles, then cut circles in half.
Lay half-circles around outer edge of canvas circle. Glue into place.
Layer half-circles, continue layering and off-setting circles as you approach the inside of the circle.
As you approach the center, the half-circles will start to really overlap. That's okay. Just pinch together. See below.
When you get as many half-circles glued in as you want, then you can finish the center. I glued a button into the center to hide the edges.
Finally, use a safety pin to attach the flower to the pillow!
Voila! Instant decor change! Ok - not instant, but this project took me about 30 minutes total!
