Easily add in felt floral accents, the look of dried grasses or accent blooms to any of your bouquets using our exciting Floral Fringe Die! These accent florals will add a touch of realism to existing felt flowers and all use the same basic technique. You also have the option of getting creative with scissors - no die machine necessary!
Skill Level: Beginner to Intermediate
Time: 1+ hours
As an alternative to using a die, these shapes can be easily cut from felt. Use our SVG file as a guide with spring action scissors for the best result! Our scallop edge scissors will help you achieve the capped edge look.
The Floral Fringe die includes five dies total:
Long Capped Fringe
Short Capped Fringe
Using the Short Fringe shape, place a dot of hot glue on one of the ends and attach to the top of the floral wire. Pinch to secure. Start to twist the felt around the wire, gluing the base of the felt as you spiral. In our Lavender stems we spiraled the felt around the base of the wire quite firmly and found the thinner we made it (even skipping some parts of the stem) created more realistic Lavender.
This twist and spiral technique is used on all the florals you can make with felt fringes. Experiment with how loose or firm your twist is - this will produce different styles of florals. Add in more lengths of fringe to change the look too!
We used the twist and spiral technique and Long Capped Fringe to create an Evergreen sprig. A thinner twist is perfect for Rosemary!
Use either the Short or Long Fringe options to create Bunny Tails and dried grasses. Any color of felt can be used to brighten up a bouquet!
To make the Aster flower, cut an extra small pom in half and attach it to floral wire using an awl and hot glue. Wrap two to three layers of Long Fringe under the base of the pom. Finish with a touch of Long Capped Fringe in Geranium. We also like to use Sepal shapes for the underside of flowers.
This flower has a hidden pom to create it's rounded shape! (Use this technique for thistles too.)
Cut an extra small pom in half. Attach stem to the underside of the pom. Wrap two complementary colors of Short Capped Fringe together and glue to the top of pom. Continue wrapping around outside of the pom forming the globe shape. Finish with a bit of Long Capped Fringe for sepals.
Attach an extra small pom to floral wire and wrap one layer of Short Floral Fringe around the pom. Take the Short Capped Fringe and wrap several lengths around until you achieve desired fullness. Since this wraps around itself, it leaves a flat bottom. Finish the underside with a Long Fringe or Sepal.
To use the Loop Fringe, hot glue along the base of the shape and fold in half.
Loop Fringe is most commonly rolled around itself or wool felt poms. They make the perfect flower center! Here we use the twist method and made it look like dried wheat. Mix it up with a touch of Long Fringe for added realism.
