How to Make a Felt Succulent Wreath

I love to make wreaths and this succulent wreath was a lot of fun. I am thrilled to share today how I made this felt flowers wreath.


It’s finally summer! You may remember a while back I shared a DIY for a live succulent wreath. I loved that DIY so much and I am pleased to say it is still growing strong. Today I am sharing how to make another succulent wreath. But this time I used felt! Felt crafts are so much fun!


I have made a lot of items out of felt fabric and most of them can be found on my blog. My favorite DIY felt projects are the spring felt flower pillow, a felt peony flower basket, a poinsettia felt pillow, and a felt wreath pillow.

How to Make a Felt Succulent Wreath 

Materials You Will Need

Wool Felt in Succulent Colors (9 colors in 12″ x 18″ sheets)

Cricut Cutting Machine

Felt Succulent patterns and templates from Lia Griffith

Low Temperature Glue Gun or Dual Temp Glue Gun and Glue Sticks

Here are photos of all of the materials I used:


There is something about succulent colors that I absolutely love! The colors are slightly muted and create the most gorgeous palette. I used this color palette of felt called Succulents. All of these colors are included and I got one packet in the 12″ x 18″ size.

Cricut Maker Cutting Machine

Cricut sells a lot of different cutting machines. The Maker machine is my favorite because it cuts a lot of different items with a rotary blade. It cuts crepe paper and felt perfectly. The other Cricut machines don’t have this capability to cut these two materials which I use all of the time. I think there may be a way to cut felt on one of their other machines but I am not sure how to do it.

Lia Griffith Templates

Lia Griffith is the master of making crepe paper and felt flowers. I have a monthly subscription with her and I absolutely love it. 

She has the templates for the Cricut machine for all of these succulents and you can find them here. The SVG files are files that you just upload to your circuit machine and it cuts them in a few easy steps.

I did want to mention that you can also find patterns on Pinterest that are free.

I primarily made two different succulents in different sizes and here is what the felt on my Cricut machine looks like after it is cut.

Low-Temperature Glue Gun

Lia Griffith has all of the directions to make the succulents, but I wanted to mention something that is really important about your glue gun. You really need a low-temperature glue gun! I don’t own one and after making these succulents I think I had at least three small burn blisters on every finger! You have to pinch and glue the felt piece as seen below, and it is literally impossible to keep the glue off of your fingers.

I did end up ordering a dual temp glue gun (after I was done) because it has both high and low temperatures. 

How to Assemble the Succulents

I thought you would like to see how the first succulent is made.

You can see below that I made a lot of these succulents. 


Here is the next succulent I made.

You can see the light blue/gray succulent below.

Felt Succulent Wreath

I made a total of 12 of the multi-leaf succulents and six of the flatter ones. I also made a few other succulents that we’re included in Lia Griffith’s templates.

Once the succulents were finished, I used my glue gun to attach them to a vine wreath form.

  1. It really is lovely. You have got to be a very driven yet patient person, that is a ton of work!

  2. Love this wreath and the wool felt is perfect! I can’t wait to try this. I think my Silhouette Cameo will cut the felt but will have to check on it!

  3. I loved the soft colors you chose for this wreath. At first, I thought it was made of that craft foam I have seen. But the felt you selected really elevates this project. I also thought you cut each leaf and flower section by hand. But you used a Cricut. I really fight every impulse I have to buy one. I do not think I would use it much. Anyway, it came out lovely.
