DIY Felt Succulents

We all love succulents, thick petaled plants -smooth, symmetrical and in a beautiful array of greens and blues -natures bouquet. These little beauties also translate well into felt -and these will fare well in all types of weather too!

Succulent Centerpiece 

Succulent Supplies

To make quick work of these we suggest using our precut ovals -or felt-fetti as we like to call them! You'll want to have both the large and small sizes.You can also freehand cut circles or trace them using freezer paper. Regardless -you'll want a big pile of ovals to work with! 

Succulent Felt Supplies

The materials we used:

Felt! Sweet Succulent palette or go for our Felt-fetti.
Felt Pom Poms, we used a variety of our sizes in the color Stone.
Moss accents
Hot Glue Gun
Item to decorate, we used birch tree stumps. 

 How to make a felt succulent

To make the succulent center take one small oval -fold in half twice and use just a bit of glue to secure. Then take 3 ovals -fold in half and form around succulent center. Continue attaching ovals on the underside of the plant to form your succulent. You can make them large or small by selected fewer or more ovals to attach.

Felt Succulent Flower Centerpiece

To make the centerpiece I used 3 various sizes of birch logs -glued on some moss -arranged the succulents and placed felt pom poms to resemble pebbles that succulents often grown in. I also scattered a few around the base of the centerpiece. A great focal point for your table -or how about try a felt terrarium or decorate grapevine wreath? Let me know what you make!

    I am not seeing the oval die? Do you sell it?

    Yay! Now I can make these beautiful arrangements with the amazing colors of felt on offer. Simple but I really needed the guidance of the pattern. The felt- fetti is great and can also be used as a template for using other colors. Thank you for the pattern.

    I ordered my felt a few months ago and have not had luck with finding the oval dies. I found your updated blog today and wish I had known about the felt-fetti!! Bummer! Can you help with oval measurements? I will hand trace, but don’t want to be too far from a size that will result in success!
