    Tools and materials (enough to make 6 flowers)

    Felt* in 4 coordinating colours:

    Colour 1: at least 20cm x 30cm

    Colour 2: at least 20cm x 30cm

    Colour 3: at least 20cm x 30cm

    Colour 4: at least 20cm x 10cm

    6 florist wires (I used 22 gauge; the lower the gauge the thicker the wire)

    Green florist stem tape - optional, but gives a nicer finish if your wire isnt already wrapped in

    paper

    Hot melt glue gun and sticks

    Scissors

    Jam jar/vase and fabric/ribbon scraps for decorating

    *I prefer to use 1mm 30% or 40% wool blend felt as it has a much softer feel than the acrylic felt you will

    usually find in craft shops. Wool blend felt is widely available online in a huge range of colours. The

    colours listed below can be purchased at paper-and-string.co.uk

    Choosing your colours

    The flowers work best with at least 4 coordinating colours. I chose:

    Colour 1 - lemon: cut 12 petal pieces and 4 trumpet pieces

    Colour 2 - yellow: cut 12 petal pieces, 2 trumpet pieces and 2 inner pieces

    Colour 3 - white/natural: cut 12 petal pieces, 2 trumpet pieces and 1 inner piece

    Colour 4 - mustard/orange: cut 4 trumpet pieces and 3 inner pieces

    Inner Trumpet Petals

    Flower 1 Colour 2 Colour 3 Colour 1

    Flower 2 Colour 4 Colour 2 Colour 1

    Flower 3 Colour 3 Colour 4 Colour 2

    Flower 4 Colour 4 Colour 1 Colour 2

    Flower 5 Colour 4 Colour 1 Colour 3

    Flower 6 Colour 2 Colour 4 Colour 3

    Cutting your shapes

    Templates are available at the end of this pattern. For each flower you will need:

    6 x petal pieces

    2 x trumpet pieces

    1 x inner piece

    1 x floral wire and tape

    not actual size

    Making your flowers

    Heat your glue gun whilst you wrap your florist wire in tape, allowing an overhang at each end; neatly

    trim the overhang.

    Cut two vertical slits into each inner piece, stopping about two thirds down (1).

    Squeeze a vertical line of glue down the centre bottom half of the inner piece and glue your wire firmly

    into place (2). Wrap and glue the sides around (3). This forms the centre of your flower.

    Squeeze a horizontal line of glue along the bottom of one trumpet piece and wrap around the inner

    flower piece, aligning the shapes at the bottom (4 & 5). Repeat with the second trumpet piece, on the

    opposite side (6). Place a small dot of glue at the top corners of one trumpet piece and stick to the other

    to form a tube shape (6).

    Squeeze a horizontal line of glue along the bottom of one petal piece and glue to the trumpet, taking

    the bottom of the petal slightly lower than the base of the trumpet (7). Pinch each side of the petal at

    the base. Repeat with two more petals, making sure you space the three petals evenly around the

    trumpet (8).

    Glue the remaining three petals in the gaps between your first three petals, this time not pinching the

    shapes. And there you have it your daffodil is now finished. Cut or fold the bottom of the wire to give a

    good fit inside your vase/jam jar. Repeat the steps above to make your other flowers.

    Decorate your jam jar however you like. I cut a strip of fabric with pinking shears and finished with lace

    ribbon, bakers twine and a handwritten tag.
