These felt succulents are a bit of an experiment. I kept seeing them on pinterest and wanted to give it a try! I think these would also make awesome flowers in other colors, too.

I made up templates for the succulents so you can make your own, and I've included some tips and tricks for assembling them too. :)

Step 1: what you'll need:

  • craft felt
  • markers
  • scissors
  • glue gun + sticks
  • succulent template (get the pdf below!)
I found the quickest and easiest way to do it was with a hot glue gun. I'm sure you could also sew them or try fabric glue, though!

I also think these could benefit from using thicker felt or using white glue to shape the craft felt. :D
Aww these are adorable
This is a fun no-maintenance option, for those among us that aren't great with plants.<br /> Succulents are my fave. This is Jorge, he's almost 2.<br />
These are so cute. I want to make some. I think this project also offers one solution to making fabric flowers, which I'd been looking for. Just use a different color, then glue something on for the center. . . Maybe those little yellow poof-balls from the craft store?
That is such a great idea. Simple, cheap, minimalist style. Thanks for sharing.
