Felt flower ideas - decorate and upcycle with mimal budget!

In one of the earlier blog posts I wrote how to do these gorgeous felt flowers. I personally fell in love with them, and nowadays they are part of my product selection at the craft markets. I've also decorated a lot of items here at home with them. Here's some ideas what I did with them - they are just perfect and cheap little decorations to upcycle and personalize many different things.

I will soon update the webshop with these felt flower packages, in case you don't have the time or energy to do them yourself. So stay tuned and check and for more info!

1.  (recycled) Tealight candle holder.
I first rolled some white yarn around an old small glass cup, using craft glue to stick the yarn to the glass. Then just glued the felt flower. It looks REALLY good with a candle burning inside.

2. Canvas.
I glued the flowers to the canvas with craft glue. The canvas was around $2 at K-Mart.

3. Photoframe.
This is a cheap wooden frame from Ikea, which I have spraypainted white. Glue the felt flowers to the corners with craft glue.

4. Hairband.
 This basic black hairband was $3 from K-mart, and the felt flowers are sewn into it with couple simple stitches.

5. Scarf.
I love scarfs, and of course I had to have a matching scarf to my new gorgeous hairband. 

Next project with these felt flowers will be couple pillows to our sofa. I'll post a picture when it's finished, but I'm sure it will look great with the frame, tealight holder, and  the canvas!
