Our latest DIY tutorial embraces the wedding custom of ring bearer pillows but breathes new life into the tradition. Felt and fresh flower artist Haylee Cheu of Adorninglory shows us how to make this cute-as-a-button alternative to the traditional ring pillow that is the perfect addition to a rustic, vintage or garden celebration.

Materials Required:
- Clear mason jar with lid (available at Ikea or Daiso)
- Sharp scissors
- Hot glue gun
- Glue sticks
- Felt sheet in the colour of your choice
- Cushion filling
- Slim satin ribbons in the colour of your choice (about 30cm)
- Needle and thread
- Petal cut-out printable template

Step 1: Cut out the petals of the felt flower in an almost oval shape with a pointed tip, with the base of the petal at about 1.5cm width. You can also use the petal cut-out printable template as a guide. More than 70 pieces were cut for this tutorial (it depends on how big you want your flower to be).

Step 2: Hot glue the base of your petals at the broad side and pinch them at the bottom with the pointed tip facing upward. Keep adding the petals, moving around the base of the flower evenly.
