DIY Felt Succulent Wreath

This week’s DIY is for this Felt Succulent Wreath, perfect for the holiday season. I made this to enter the Direct Blinds Deck Your Door wreath competition, so I hope you enjoy it and please cross your fingers for me to win!Felt-Succulent-Wreath-DIY-By-Claireabellemakes

This is a great craft project for beginners as it just requires some glue gun action – my favourite! I will be posting a review on my new glue gun on Wednesday so stay tuned.

I got all my supplies from Hobbycraft so will link to them below, but you should be able to find them in most craft stores.

Start by wrapping the hessian strip around the wreath form, applying hot glue each time you wrap the back of wreath. Do not press the hessian/burlap down with your hands as the hot glue will seep through and you will burn your fingers! Wait until cool and smooth the fabric.

Set your wreath aside. Now I’m going to show you how to make a felt succulent.

Cut around 15 pieces of felt measuring approximately 1.5 inches x 1.5 inches. Also cut 1 piece of felt measuring 1.5 inch by 2 inches. This rectangle piece will form the centre of your succulent plant. Roll the rectangle piece up and glue the end.

Trim one side of each square of felt, to form a curve and point. These will be your succulent plant leaves. Place a line of hot glue along the bottom edge and press around the centre roll of felt towards the bottom.

Keep working around your succulent, adding leaves as you go.Making-A-Felt-Succulent

Make a second felt succulent using a contrasting felt colour. I varied the petal shape cutting each felt square into a diagonal point.

Once your felt succulents are made, it’s time to attach them to your wreath.Make-Your-Own-Felt-Succulents Apply hot glue to the bottom of each felt succulent and gently press onto the front of the wreath. How-To-Make-A-Succulent-WreathTake a loop of twine and glue to a small piece of the hessian, to make a hanging loop for the wreath. Glue the hessian in place.

Then your felt succulent wreath is ready to hang! I think I might work on it further to add some smaller plants to the wreath, what do you think?

I really enjoyed making this wreath and I’m already thinking of new DIYs for felt succulents as I am terrible at keeping real plants alive!
