DIY Potted Felt Pansies

One of my favourite felt flowers is this intricate pansy flower. It’s part of this felt flower collection from our Etsy shop and includes other early Spring blooms such as coreopsis, daisy, english primrose and crocus.

Using colorful coordinating felt sheets from Benzie Designs, we put together these potted felt pansies with an old, cracked terracotta pot my mom had lying around. The pot couldn’t be used for much else so we were happy to put it to use with this decor idea.

Materials Needed to Make Potted Felt Pansies:

How to Make:

Painting the Terracotta Pots

Make sure the surface of the pot is clean and dry. Using a medium sized paintbrush, cover the surface of the pot in Everlasting. Apply additional coats as needed until desired coverage is achieved.

To avoid brush strokes, dilute the additional coats of chalky finish paint with water. Leave to dry fully before proceeding with remaining steps.

Alternatively, to get a white washed effect on the pot, use a clean cloth to wipe off the excess paint immediately after the first coat of paint.

Making Felt Pansies

You can find the pattern with full assembly instructions for making felt pansies here. We made about a dozen pansies in two different sizes for this flower arrangement. To adjust the size of your pansy, simply photo copy the pansie pattern and scale it down 80%.

Assembling the Potted Felt Pansies

Place the styrofoam ball inside the pot.

Materials needed to make potted felt pansies including felt flowers, hot glue gun, a pot and a styrofoam ball.

Glue the foliage stems to the styrofoam ball having the leaves hang over the side of the pot.

Gluing felt foliage onto the Styrofoam ball.

Begin gluing the larger felt pansies directly to the styrofoam ball alternating the colors. 

Cut a few pieces of floral wire measuring 2-3” long. Fold the wire in half and twist the ends. 

Glue the looped end of the wire to the back side of a few smaller felt pansies.

Insert the wire ends into the styrofoam ball having the pansy stick up and over the other glued pansies to add some dimension. 

Leave a couple of smaller felt pansies hanging off the side of the pot.
