Easy DIY Felt Wreath for all Occasions!

From felt leaves to flowers and even birds, there are so many beautiful felt wreath ideas to make! Succulents are one of our favorites because they’re timeless and a great addition to your home decor year-round!

And really: is there such a thing as having too many succulents? Ummm…nope, no way, no such thing. Whether they are real or faux, we can’t seem to get enough of these little beauties. We started off by making these potted felt succulents and then quickly cut out and assembled some more succulents. One can never have too many!

We love seeing signs of seasons changing, especially from Winter to Spring here in Canada and hanging a new wreath on your front door is one of them. Down the road, you could easily swap out the felt succulents for felt poinsettia florals and have a simple DIY Christmas wreath.

For this particular wreath we used a simple metal ring to form the base. You can however make a pretty wreath using a grapevine wreath, foam wreath or even wire wreath frame. You’ll just need to adjust the number of felt flowers or succulents you make to cover the wreath base as appropriate. You can see for example how we made this felt flower wreath using a grapevine wreath form.

Felt Wreath DIY Tutorial:

The first step is to download and print the felt succulent patterns for the 4 different types: mother of pearl, houseleek, hens and chicks and zebra plant.

Select four coordinating felt colors, one for each of the four different types of succulents. I just LOVE the succulent felt sheet color palette from Benzie Designs. They are so rich and realistic.

Using a pair of fabric scissors, cut out all pieces from one succulent pattern at a time.

Alternatively, if you have a Cricut machine, you can upload the SVG file and cut each succulent in half the time!

The next step is to assemble each of the succulents following the instructions in the printable template included in the felt succulent pattern and gather all materials needed to make the wreath.
