How to Make a Felt Succulent Letter

Fill your life and your letters with these super cute and easy to make succulents! Mix and match with different green shades and shapes to create a this brilliant spring decoration.


You Will Need Craft Essentials How to Make
  1. Download, print and cut out the succulent templates.
  2. Draw around the templates onto the coloured felt, repeating in a mixture of colours. To fill the letter ‘C’ I made a combination of the different succulent styles and sizes. My top tip would be to start by making the larger styles and then create smaller ones to fill any gaps.
  3. Begin assembling the succulents.

Star, Round, Wavy and Pointy Succulents

  1. Put a small line of hot glue in the centre of a small petal and fold the petal at an angle. Add a line of hot glue to the bottom edge and roll into a cone shape to create the centre.
  2. For the rest of the petals, put a line of hot glue in the centre and fold at an angle. Add a line of hot glue to the bottom of the petal and attach the the centre piece.
  3. Continue adding pieces in a circular pattern. Follow the petal counts in the downloadable template for each size you make.



Petal Succulents

  1. Put a line of hot glue along the longest edge of the rectangle and carefully roll, placing another line of hot glue to secure it.
  2. To add the petals put a small line of hot glue of the bottom edge and wrap around the top of the roll.
  3. Continue adding the petals, carefully spacing and layering them



Succulent Leaves

  1. Put a small line of hot glue in the centre of the base of the leaf and pinch together.
  2. Repeat until you have done this for all the leaves.
  3. Put a small dab of hot glue on the edge of the pinched base and stick together. Alternate sides until you have completely stuck your leaves together.


Pom Succulents

  1. Cut a long rectangle from a sheet of felt, put a line of hot glue along one of the longer edges, and fold. Once dry, snip into the folded edge the roll. Place a small dab of hot glue to secure.





4. Once you have made a combination of succulents you can now arrange them to fill your letter. Play around with the layout, mixing the different shapes and styles together.


  1. When you are happy with how it looks, use hot glue to stick your design down.
