DIY Felt Succulent Trio with Free Patterns

Here’s what you need to make Succulents from Felt:

  • Kunin Classic Felt Craft Sheets – Neon Green, Apple Green, Pirate Green (one each)
  • Mini Terra Cotta Flowerpots, 2” in diameter – Three
  • Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
  • Scissors
  • MONO Twin Permanent Marker - Black
  • DIY Felt Succulents Pattern Sheet – download from the link below

Here’s how to create Succulents for a Tiered Tray:


To begin the DIY Felt Succulents, gather all supplies. Remove labels from flowerpots and felt sheets. Print, and cut out DIY FELT SUCCULENT PATTERNS by clicking the link to my blog post below. If making more than one set, trace onto chipboard and cut out with scissors.



Trace each set of succulent shapes onto one of the colors of felt with a permanent marker according to the instructions on the pattern sheet.

Each shape creates a different succulent.

Experiment with your own shapes to create unique succulents of your own!


Place a small line of hot glue in the center of one of the smallest succulent petals. Fold the petal in half, at an angle, and pinch to secure. Add a few dots of hot glue to the folded edge and roll to create the center of the succulent.


Place a small line of hot glue in the center of the rest of the smallest succulent petals. Fold the petals in half, at an angle, and pinch to secure. Add a few dots of hot glue along the folded edge and layer onto the center of the succulent.


Continue to glue the rest of the medium and large succulent petals in half, at an angle. Add the folded succulent petals to the base in a circular pattern. Follow the petal counts on the pattern sheet for each of the three succulents.

Plant in mini terra cotta flowerpots found at Dollar Tree or the craft store.

    I really like this idea, but would using plastic make them a bit more realistic and easier to clean?

    plus another way to recycle all of the waste plastic.
