9x12 felt sheet in green for leaves

Low-temp glue gun

Hot-glue sticks

Scissors

What you do

1. Begin by cutting felt circles for your rose. You’ll need one 4-inch circle, four 3-inch circles and five or six 2-inch circles.

2. Cut the 4-inch circle into a spiral. Starting from center, roll the spiral to form the middle of the rose; use hot glue to secure the shape at sides and bottom.

3. On each 3-inch and 2-inch circle, cut slits at 5, 6 and 7 o’clock. Overlap the edges of each slit and add hot glue to hold the shape of the petal you’ve just formed.

4. With hot glue, attach the first layer of small petals around your center spiral; then anchor the larger petals to build out the bloom. Crown the center of the rose with a pom-pom.

5. Cut rose leaf shapes from green felt.

6. Use hot glue to secure the bloom and leaves to floral wire. Arrange in a vase and enjoy your everlasting bouquet!
