Adding a wire stem to felted flowers
Adding a wire floral stem to a felted flower
This is one method I came up with to add a wire floral stem to a wet felted flower. First I use an ice pick to punch two holes in the center of the flower about 3/8 to 1/2 inch apart. Insert the wire from the back into one of the holes and bend over and insert back down into the other hole. Leave yourself enough wire to twist around the stem tightly. Then starting at the top of the wire next to the flower back tightly wrap floral tape around twisted wire and all the way down the stem. You can also attach leaves to the stem in the same way.

Wire can be hidden with more wool needle felted on or some other
embellishment. Now you can easily arrange a bouquet with your felted flowers by bending and posing them as you like.
