CIY: Yellow Fall Flowers

I might be obsessed with yarn balls now!  I had so much fun making these little guys for my yellow flowers.  Trimming the yarn balls brought me back to the days when I used to push Play-Doh through my hair cutting salon.  I had so much fun cutting hair then re-growing it.   I would spend hours doing this!  I may have to make an entire bouquet of yarn flowers to get my fix in!

Supplies:

- Yellow Yarn

- Green Floral Wires

- Green Felt

- Scissors

ww.happinessiscreating.com{Step 1}: Wrap your yarn around your four fingers 60 times.

{Step 2}: Cut a long piece of yarn. Thread it between your middle finger so it will go up and over the center of your yarn. Tie a tight knot in the center of your yarn.

{Step 3}: Take your floral wire and wrap it around the yarn you just tied.

{Step 4}: Use your scissors to cut all of your yarn loops you made.

{Step 5} Use your scissors to trim your yarn into a perfect ball.

{Step 6}: Cut a felt square an 1 & 1/2 by an 1 & 1/2. Fold your felt square in half and cut a half circle. Make sure you do not cut on the fold.

{Step 7}:  Then, cut out notches in your circle. Cut a tiny hole in the center of your felt.

{Step 8}: Slide your wire through the hole in your felt. Move your felt to the top of your flower so it is right under your flower.dEnjoy your flowers!

    So colorful and creative. A wonderful project, thank you for sharing, I am inspired to try this with burned orange and play around with a bit of burlap. You think it’ll look nice?
