Felt Bows

Last year it was pom pom bows. This year it’s all about felted bows. I’m obsessed with them and that might be an understatement. They come together rather quickly for the perfect topper for presents.

Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

8″x 11″ Sheets of colored felt (the heavier the felt, the sturdier the bow)

Fabric scissors

Hot glue gun

Cut a 3 inch strip lengthwise down the longest end of felt sheet. Cut a small circle for the base about the size of a quarter, maybe slightly larger. Set aside.

Fold in half and cut 1/2 inch strips or thinner, leaving a 1/2 inch of uncut felt at the end.

With your cut strip of felt, start from one end and neatly roll felt to the other end.

Then hot glue the bottom of the rolled felt and place firmly onto the cut-out circle base.
