These Violet Flowers make a perfect Mother’s Day gift that is easy to make. These flowers will never need watering and won’t wilt and Mom or Grandma will love them.
Rainbow Classic™Felt in Orchid and Lilac for the flowers and Olive for the leaves
Mini terra cotta pot (2.5” tall)
2.5” Smoothfoam Ball
Straight pins with purple heads
Bee Buttons from Buttons Galore and More
Cut 2 purple flower shapes for each flower. I made 12 flowers, so I cut 24 violet shapes. 6 in light purple felt and 6 in dark purple felt. Also cut 12 green leaf shapes.
Place Smoothfoam ball into terracotta pot.
Stack a light flower shape onto a dark flower shape. Place a leaf beneath. Add a button to the top of the flower.
Attach to the Smoothfoam ball by pushing a straight pin through one of button holes, the felt flower pieces and finally the leaf into the ball. Continue to attach all your flower pieces. Allow some to overlap to create fullness.
Thread the bee button onto a straight pin and stick into the ball, having it hover slightly above the felt blooms.
