Handmade succulents five ways

Admittedly, we’ve proven ourselves succulent enthusiasts on one or two occasions. Today, we’re taking it to a whole new level with three of our craftiest artists who are using a range of materials to create their own unique handmade cacti. We’re even sharing the details for how to create one of your own! (Ahem. And you may want to keep an eye on your local Hallmark Gold Crown store for a few of the others. Just sayin.)

Designer Leslie Seibert is a pro with felt. We love the high-contrast stitching and her sweet dotted pot!

Designer Hannah Carey has never met a craft she couldn’t tackle. These tiny felt treasures are “potted” in actual miniature terra cotta pots! A mini macramé hanger is icing on the cake. (If you missed it, we shared tips on creating your own macramé hanger just last week.)

We told you Hannah could do anything, didn’t we? She also created these perfectly plush crocheted cacti. (That and much more as a member of our internal “Plush Club”.)

Designer Allyson Lassiter is the type who can make something out of nothing. That’s why when she rounded up miscellaneous found materials like beads, sequins, sand and rocks, we knew she would turn them into little works of art!

Allyson also created a beautiful watercolor paper cacti that includes a DIY template for you to create one of your very own. We’d love to see your creations. Please tag us at @Think.Make.Share if you’re on Instagram. We’ll be sure to share our favorites! Download the template HERE.

    Is there a pattern for the crochet cacti? Those would be great to make as gifts for people that cannot take care of live plants &/or a housewarming present.
