DIY Felt Flowers

Supplies
-Half a sheet of felt (more or less depending on size of flower)
-Scissors
-Hot Glue Gun
Cut out a circle
Cut the felt circle into a spiral
Start at the centre of the spiral (to make the centre of the rose) and wrap the fabric around the centre
Roll the entirely spiral. It should look like this when you're finished.
Add a bit of hot glue to finish. You may have to add dabs of glue to random spots throughout the rest of the flower if it starts to slide out of place, but usually if you wrap it securely enough, you won't have to.

Rose type 2
For the second type of rose, you will need to cut the spiral into thicker... spirals???? Then give the spiral waves. You can do this all in one step if you want, I just can't.
This flower will be more 3D than the previous flower, although I prefer the mod look of the first flower.
Try different cuts to the spiral for different flowers. 
You could add a stem and leaves if you wish, or leave it flat to glue to headbands and pins.
And there you have it!
I haven't finished making mine into bouquets, but that's the next step.
I used them to make cute little corsages though, just by adding a pin and feather.
