"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Rosebud Felt Flower Bouquet

This felt flowers DIY will be your new centerpiece . . . on every table.

Rosebud Felt Flower Bouquet

Love the look of flowers, but not the upkeep? These dainty felt rosebud bouquets are perfect for everyone who has a struggling green thumb! These DIY home décor accessories look great in home, office or dorm – and they don’t need sunlight to shine!
 
You can choose to add them to small vases, teacups and more – these would make great table centerpieces if you created larger bouquets. These rosebuds have a bit of sparkle with the addition of a crystal flatback center – if you prefer them not as glam, keep them plain. The more sparkly the better, I always say though!

Step 1: Gather materials.

You’ll need felt in a variety of colors, 18g aluminum wire in green, scissors, flatback gemstones and wire cutters. You’ll also need hot glue and a hot glue gun.

Step 2: Cut a few 8” pieces of aluminum wire.

These will act as your stems.

Step 3: Cut various squares of felt from different colors.

These will be your roses, and the size of your square will affect the final size of your rose. I made mine about 4”, give or take.

Step 4: Round the corners of your felt piece.

Cut a spiral into the center of your square. Make sure the widths are somewhat even!

Step 5: Cut a fluted edge into the outer edges.

…..this gives a more realistic look.

Step 6: Glue the very center of the spiral onto the end of a wire piece.

Step 7: Continue wrapping the felt around the wire, gluing down with every wrap for added strength.

Don’t wrap too tightly or too loosely!

Step 8: Glue down the very end of the spiral to finish off your rosebud.

Step 9: Glue in crystal flatbacks to the center of the roses for added sparkle.

Step 10: Cut a few leaf-shaped pieces out of green felt.

Step 11: Glue the small leaves under each rose, for a bit of greenery!

Step 12: Group your roses together and wrap green aluminum wire around the stems for a cleaner look.

This also makes it much easier to place in your chosen vase.

Step 13: Cut any excess wire off the ends to fit your vase.

Simply place in bouquet- if you want to gently move any of the rosebuds, bend the aluminum wires to your liking.
