Felt Floral Letter
Michaels currently has various types letter forms that can be used for this project

Supplies:
Flower template (click to download and print)
Wooden letter form
Felt in various colors
Yarn in various colors
10 – 6″ strands of wire, 24 gauge
Floral tape
Scissors
Glue gun & glue stick

Directions:
1. Wrap yarn around your fingers about ten times. Place a strand of wire in the center, twist wire together under the yarn. Snip yarn ends.
2. Wrap floral tape around the flower center to secure.
3. Cut out all your petal pieces in the shape of a heart. Cut 2 leaf pieces per flower. To attach each petal onto the center, add a dab of glue on the bottom of the petal, then pinch and press onto the base of the flower center. Repeat for each petal (about 4 petals per flower). Add a dab of glue to the bottom of each leaf and add onto the base of the petals.
4. Roll wire end around finger, add some glue and then place onto the letter form. Repeat until all flowers have been used.

Note- Depending on the letter you create, you may need more flowers to fill the letter form.

Glow’s been learning her letters, so she’s all about that G-L-O-W. You could even fill the letter form with pom poms, or stuff it with colorful tissue paper. The current Michael’s Make Market section is filled with plenty of options for you to personalize letters to fit your own decor.

This is our first shot at a craft video, so we would love your feedback!
