DIY no sew felt sunflower magnets.

These no sew felt sunflowers are super easy to make and oh so cute!

Adding a magnet to the back transforms them into versatile decorative elements.

The addition of a second magnet means you can easily add flowers to lampshades, curtains or even clothing with no damage or commitment.

You will need:

1/2 sheet of felt – about 4.5″ x 11″per flower. I used Gold Nugget and Buttercream

Beacon Felt Glue

Sequins– I used Olive Drab

16 clothes pins

Round magnet(s)  with decent strength

Sunflower Template at end of post.

(Optional) Hot Glue

Cut three sunflower shapes per flower. Flip one so it points in the opposite direction as the other two. Set one of the matching two aside.
