How to Make a Felt Succulent Wreath

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

Succulent Wreath DIY

It’ss finally summer! You may remember last year at this time 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!

Today I have joined some of my blogger friends and we are all sharing summer wreath projects. Be sure to scroll down to see all of their gorgeous wreaths.

I have made a lot of items out of felt 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.

Materials You Will Need

Wool Felt in Succulent Colors (9 colors in 12″ x 16″ 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 bought the felt online at Benzie and they even have a color palette of felt called Succulents. All of these colors are included and I got one packet in the 12″ x 16″ 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.

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.
