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
- glue gun + sticks
- succulent template (get the pdf below!)
I also think these could benefit from using thicker felt or using white glue to shape the craft felt. :D
Step 2: Trace and Cut Out the Leaves
I traced several of each leaf size on the felt and then cut them out all at once. You'll want the most leaves on the bottom and less on top. I decreased the number of leaves per layer by two or so.
You'll also want to cut a small (2 inch or so) circle to glue the bottom layer to.
For the lighter succulent, I just glued each layer of leaves to the previous one. For the darker one, I cut out small felt circles to place between each layer to help build some height. (Thanks to Penolopy Bulnick for the idea!)
Step 3: Gluing + Assembling
I planned mine out quickly by laying them down before gluing, but you can wing it however you like. :D
Step 4: Bonus Points!
I'm sure there are so many other things you could do to pretty them up, too. I didn't end up having enough time to play with them, so I'm excited to see what you guys can come up with. Smaller ones could make great pins and hairclips, and I think they'd make adorable garlands!
