DIY Plants For Your Home

Posted on


I’d love to have lots of plants in my home but I’ve only been able to keep one small cactus alive (my Pusheen herb garden kit is also doing okay but I’m not very hopeful about it!). Luckily, it’s easy to make some cute and colourful plants that will be much easier to look after so here’s some DIYs I’ve found for all kinds of crafts.

Origami is an affordable option for mini desk plants and Paper Kawaii has lots of tutorials so you can make a whole display.

Youtube is full of tutorials for paper flowers – search ‘DIY paper rose’ etc. to find your favourite. I think these big fluffy pink flowers by Colors Paper would look so fun in a vase.

DIY felt plant kit

Felt is one of my favourite crafting materials as it’s so cheap and forgiving of mistakes. I’ve previously made a bouquet of flowers with a kit by The Handmade Florist (UK) and they still look amazing so I might try a plant next. They also sell digital patterns if you’ve already got a big felt stash.

If you dislike cutting all the tiny pieces for felt flowers, Sew Sew n Sew (HK) has a set of pastel felt succulents which include pre-cut pieces.

If you love amigurumi, you need this ebook of 12 crochet plant patterns by Knot Monster. They are all so cute and the hanging plants are especially clever.

Or for something even more fun, Krawka has a crochet pattern for a bouquet of man-eating plants! They’d definitely be a conversation starter.

Needle felted plants can look quite realistic and Little Woolly Shop (UK) has a cactus needle felting kit that includes everything you need to make 3 plants.

Kawaii Sweet World’s DIY kawaii succulents won’t fool anyone but they’re also phone chargers! They use real plant pots and polymer clay so you could also make them at a smaller size without the charger.

DIY pom pom cactus

When I started making pom poms, I didn’t know what to do with them and ended up popping some inside decorative tea cups as a kind of plant. This pom pom cacti tutorial by Laura Radniecki is a much better idea and I really need to make some.

I’ll share some photos of my plants on Instagram later – I hope you’ll try some too.
