This felt rose ring was a project that I did few years back and was my first time doing a ring using felt. It was originally based on a ring that a friend purchased elsewhere and I thought I could pay for less and make my own. So I experimented it myself at home. I am happy the way it turned out, quite versatile as I can make it as a brooch, earrings or a headpiece.

Have fun!

I used 11 petals. You can cut more to make your rose to have more volume. My petal size is within 1 inch x 1 inch.

Step 3: Take a petal and put a string at the tip of the petal (the side that is narrower) as show in the picture

It's lovely. In my personal opinion the size is best 4 a broach, headband or barrett. But your workmanship in Fine.
