DIY Felt Succulents

I made this set of felt succulents using my Cricut and I’m sharing my templates and tips for these easy DIY felt succulents in this tutorial.

I thought the felt succulents I made for this project would be similar to the paper succulents set I made a while back but as it turns out, different material behaves in different ways so I had to change some things around.

For one, felt is a much more flexible and textured material. It doesn’t hold its shape as well but it also adds more nuance to the look of the plant.

I actually preferred the non-100% wool for this project because it is more flexible and provided a more forgiving medium for the succulent designs.

Materials for DIY Felt Succulents

Felt – I like this assorted set of green felt from Amazon. To make a 3 to 4 inch wide succulent need a 7×7 inch piece for the smallest template and about a letter sized sheet for the largest one.

Glue gun – I like using glue guns with felt, it dries much faster and holds the material together well.

Cutting Machine – I use a Cricut. Check out my recommendations for Cricut machines and accessories for beginners for more info.

You can also cut this one by hand if you don’t have a cutting machine.

Felt succulent templates – I’ve included mine in both SVG and printable PDF formats for free in my resource library.

    How to make felt succulent plants

    Step 1: Cut the pieces out using the templates.

    I like to use the rotary blade for cutting felt with my Cricut Maker. If you don’t have a Maker, be sure to use the strong grip mat when using the blade.

    Step 2: Glue the layers together starting with the smallest piece.

    I like to places a small dab of glue in the center.

    I then just scrunch the center together.

    Step 3: Add the subsequent layers one by one

    I use the same dab then scrunch method except I scrunch with the already done layers on top.

    Step 4: The template that is rolled and glue as I go.

    Be sure to offset the leaves as best as possible.
