I love that a simple little techniques can change the entire look of an object. Cutting Kunin Felt in a spiky spiral and then rolling it up looks just like a fun succulent that you can put in a pot or on a card!
Time: 20 MinutesCost: $10Difficulty: Easy
Start with green felt, and color of green is fine, you can even do other colors if you want to make it fun! Scissors, pen, glue, paint, and a terracotta pot.
The technique is super simple, trace a spiral shape onto your Kunin felt with spiky edges. The more of the spiral you make the larger the cacti will be. You can make the spikes small (for a tiny cacti) or large for a giant cacti, it is all up to you! At this point all your do is cut the shape out and roll it up to make you cacti!!
I also had some fun with the terracotta pots making them into glitter pots with Plaid Folkart paints!
Here is a video on how to roll up the felt to make the cacti.
