Happy October! It’s finally acceptable to spruce up the mantle and porch with pumpkins! This year I’m going super simple with mini pumpkins topped with felt succulents! These DIY succulent pumpkins are easily made with the Spellbinder Platinum 6. I know I have loved on the Platinum 6 before (PAPER FLOWER FAVOR BOX TUTORIAL, BACK TO SCHOOL IDEAS & CUPCAKE BIRTHDAY PARTY FAVORS), but this machine is my absolute favorite. I have yet to find a machine that can cut thick felt with such ease.
To make your own succulent pumpkins follow the directions below. And if you make a Love The Day Craft make sure to post to social media using hashtag #LTDcrafts so I can see it!
THINGS YOU’LL NEED
Cut light green felt to the size of Steel Rule Die. Run the Die through the Spellbinder Platinum 6. Repeat with the dark green felt. Take the large light green succulent leaf and glue to the top of the pumpkin. Glue the smaller dark green piece and then another light green piece atop of that. Layer as many pieces as desired. Let dry and enjoy!
