How to make felt flowers

I’ve been into all kinds of crafty stuff lately, and with my wreath obsession, wanted to make a wreath with some felt flowers.  I’m kind of thinking about a pillow with some felt flowers as accents next.  Anyway, I thought I’d share with you how to make felt flowers because I was kind of overwhelmed at first and it’s really NOT super complicated.
