Peony Flower Felt Clip Tutorial + Template

It's a gloomy afternoon today and I was inspired to post a tutorial to brighten your day! I've been wanting to do this after collecting a couple of plain hair bands and with some new felt pieces I bought from Artfriend, it was just the perfect embellishment piece. It's super easy peasy to do and it took me only about 10minutes (that I guess will depend on your cutting skills too!). Download the template and start on it right away!

Right click and 'save as' the template. Print on an A4 piece of paper. Enlarge as you please. I won't recommend you to reduce the size since the smallest piece will be too small to cut.

The printed template. You will notice a full bloom image on the left hand top corner. Don't cut that, it's just a guide for you to stack your pieces.

Things you'll need : Felt piece with colour of your choice. I fell in love with this fuschia pink and I opt for a bright lime green for the leaf. A barrette (optional unless you just intend to glue the flower straight to the hairband. In this case, I prefer to use a barette so I can pin the flower anywhere else eg. a bag or direct onto a ponytail.) A hairband that matches.

I'm using felt I bought from Artfriend at Midvalley. They come in A4 pieces and lots of nice colours. They're ecospun from recycled plastic bottles!!

Cut the template pieces out. Don't have to be precise here.


Arrange on felt piece. Use a couple of pins and start cutting!

Very easy to cut if you have them securely pinned to the felt.

Stack the pieces using the template as a guide.

I decided to change the button I was going to use. This is a vintage cherry blossom button from Alice's shop.

Sew the button and the stack of felt together.


After a few securing stitches. Start sewing a few rounds on the spine of the barette.

Remove the tension bar on the barette. (Yes, they're removable!!)

Cut a small square piece of felt and glue the spine to secure the barette to the felt bloom. Reattach the tension bar on the barette. Leave to dry for about 20 minutes.

Use the barette as shown on the hairband. If the hairband is too thick, just remove the tension bar on the barette and try again. I think it's best you try the barette on before attaching the felt bloom. Sometimes the hairband you have may not fit, you can also get varying sizes of barettes to match.The finished bloom attached to the hairband. It's a nice gift for someone sweet! Have fun and do let me know if you attempt to make one of this. I'm glad most of you enjoy my tutorials and I love to hear from all of you. Thanks for being a part of my crafting madness! LOL!
