Flowery felt fairy lights are a magical addition to any space, bringing an enchanting touch of nature and warmth to your surroundings. These ethereal string lights are adorned with delicate felt flowers, each handcrafted with intricate petals and vibrant colors, creating a whimsical and captivating display.

Whether they're hung in a bedroom, strung along a patio, or used to adorn a special event, flowery felt fairy lights infuse an aura of romance and wonder. With a soft, ambient glow that gently illuminates the intricate floral designs, they transform any area into a fairy tale-like setting, making them a perfect choice for those seeking to add a touch of enchantment to their decor.

Creating Romantic Flowery Felt Fairy Lights

Start Making The Romantic Flowery Fairy Lights

Step 1: Cut Out the Pieces

The punch should provide perfect circles when used correctly.  Lay the cutting mat on a flat, sturdy, shock-resistant surface. Placing a small sheet of MDF board beneath will offer additional protection. 

To minimise waste, draw vertical lines every 2.5cm (1in) on the surface of each piece of felt. Using the 20mm (3/4in) punch and a hammer, create rounds of this size in each of the four colors. Remember to reserve some of each color felt for the smaller circles. Punch the fabric within the columns drawn on the felt, working from top to bottom. If a felt circle doesn't come away intact, use embroidery scissors to cut it out along the markings left by the punch. 

Follow the same procedure to create flower centers, using the 18mm (11/16in) punch this time.

Step 2: Assemble the Flowers

Once you've cut out all the shapes, take two petals in one color and two in another color to create a flower. Begin by gluing the first petal onto the second, the second onto the third, the third onto the fourth, and the fourth onto the first. Alternate the colors as you go.

Finish by attaching a small circle in the third color to the center of the flower.

Assemble The Flowery Felt Fairy Lights

Step 3: Assembly
After you've finished crafting the flowers and the glue has dried, use the 2mm (3/32in) punch to make a small hole in the center of each flower. Thread a 20cm (8in) length of brass wire through a bead, bending it back to secure it underneath the bead.

Apply a small amount of glue to the center of a felt flower and then insert the wire into the hole in the flower, positioning the bead at the center.

Once the glue has dried, wrap the brass wire stems of the flowers around the wire on the fairy lights.
