These sweet violets are a perfect for Springtime crafting. Use them to decorate your Easter table or present them as a beautiful gift for your mom on Mother’s Day.



  1. Using the PDF pattern Felt Violet Pattern, cut 2 purple flower shaped for each flower. I made 12 flowers, so I cut 24 violet shapes. 6 in light purple felt and 6 in dark purple felt. Also cut 12 green leaf shapes.
  2. Place Smoothfoam ball into terracotta pot.
  3. Stack a light flower shape onto a dark flower shape. Place a leaf beneath. Add a button to the top of the flower.

  4. Attach to the Smoothfoam ball by pushing a straight pin through one of button holes, the felt flower pieces and finally the leaf into the ball.
  5. Continue to attach all your flower pieces. Allow some to overlap to create fullness.
  6. Thread the bee button onto a straight pin and stick into the ball, having it hover slightly above the felt blooms.
