Learn how to make How to Make Felt Roses with the Cricut Maker to create a beautiful fall wreath or any other type of decor you would like!
Last month, the first Fresh Cut SVG Bundle was released and we came up with all kinds of projects to inspire you. It was amazing and was a big hit…but guys…I think October’s bundle is even better! I got together with 9 of my favorite blogging friends (seriously, I love them all as bloggers and as friends…they’re amazing), and we each created an SVG File that you can cut with any cutting machine. You’ll find hand-lettered designs, banners, candle holder decorations and more! My contribution is these 3-D flower designs. You can use them with paper or fabric, and today I’m teaching you how to Make Felt Flowers with the Cricut Maker! I decided to create a felt flower wreath with the files I created. LOVE the way it turned out!
I’ve included 4 different flower designs (that loopy one has me swooning), 1 accent flower (place it under the rolled up felt flower for a really beautiful effect), and 9 leaf designs. Once it goes live in my shop, the set will be $3.97, so make sure you grab it in the bundle this month before it’s gone!

What you’ll need to Make Felt Roses with the Cricut Maker
- Flower Graphics from the Fresh Cut SVG Bundles (bundle only available in October!!)
- Cricut Maker (will come with a fabric rotary blade- read more about the Maker here)
- Fabric Grip Mat (for larger projects, get the 12X24″ mat)
- Felt Sheets (no larger than 12X24)- try BBD Supplies or Felt on the Fly on Etsy
- Hot Glue Gun
- Cricut Maker Essentials Collection is a good place to start with Cricut sewing projects
- First, upload the Flower Graphics to Cricut Design Space. Tip: See this tutorial if you don’t already know how to do that.
- Once you place it in your project, select the image, right click your mouse and select UNGROUP. Now, you can resize each individual flower. Tip: For Felt, I recommend not making the flowers smaller than 6 inches.
- You can copy and paste the flowers as much as you like, change the colors in the Color Sync Panel (just drag and drop the images to the felt color you’d like them to be cut on), and once you’re finished, select MAKE IT in the upper right-hand corner.
- Click continue, then once it registers your Cricut Maker, select FELT under the materials options.
- Make sure your rotary blade is in the machine, place the first Felt color onto the Fabric Grip Mat, and load it in the Cricut Maker. Press the cut button when you’re told to do so.
- Once they’re cut, start rolling the flowers from the outside in. Make sure it’s not too tight – try to mimic the look of my flowers.
- When you get to the circle in the middle, place Hot Glue on it, and press rolled up felt down on the circle. Hold in place for a little bit and make sure the glue is holding before you let it go.
- Let the glue dry, then you can decorate with the other elements from the bundle!
You can see I also snuck in a little glitter cardstock because I freaking love the stuff (in case you couldn’t tell). I think the felt roses are beautiful on their own, as well. If you’re looking for more ways to work with fabric, check out my post on How to Make Simple Patterns with the Cricut Maker.
Remember, this set is only available for October, then you have to purchase the files individually (if they’re available at all). You’ll save big time with this bundle!
