I’m giving you the free SVG cut file to make felt crocus flowers (or paper flowers) to brighten up your home for spring or add in a wreath.
I love making wreaths to decorate my front door. In fact, my wreaths have always had the same base, a grapevine wreath. You can see its evolution in recent years and around the seasons:
- 15-minute spring wreath for less than $15
- Transform your spring wreath into a fall wreath for $1
- How to make a wreath with terracotta pots
The last one has been there for some time (except winter!) And I simply changed the kinds of flowers in the terracotta pots.
This year, I decided to make the flowers myself. Since paper is not a great idea to put outside, I decided to make them out of felt.
And I decided to make crocus flowers. I love these flowers that pierce the snow when spring arrives. They make me happy every time!

Material required to make felt crocus flowers

- Glue gun and glue sticks
- Spray to stiffen fabrics Stiffen Quick
- Free SVG file available in NeliDesign’s library by registering below
You can also see the difference between the types of felt and how to cut them in Cori’s post from “Hey, let’s make stuff”. Her images are very visual and easy to understand.
In this image, you’ll see that you will not be able to cut acrylic felt (craft felt) with the fine point blade (the basic blade that comes with the Cricut Explore Air and the Maker). You will absolutely need the rotary blade of the Maker.
If you want to know more about what all the Cricut blades, wheels and tips are for, you can check out this post or even download my free cheat sheet.

And once I added it to my grapevine wreath with terracotta pots, this is what it looked like:
