How cute is this felt aloe vera plant? After looking at our felt flowers page, we realized that we need to add some more felt plants for all the plant lovers out there! Plus our designer Krista has been wanting to create another stuffed felt succulent ever since she made this felt Saguaro cactus.
Because of the intricate stitching and all of the pieces involved, our felt aloe vera plant is a great intermediate craft project. If you’re new to felt and are looking for something simpler, check out our felt succulent vertical garden.
Say aloe to your new favorite plant
Aloe vera plants have such an interesting texture and shape. To recreate this look for our felt aloe vera plant, Krista created three sizes of aloe vera leaves. In our photo tutorial, we will show you exactly how to make these leaves and glue them in place to make your plant look realistic.
Along with our felt aloe vera plant, we are also showing you how to make a pretty felt pot for your plant to go in. The coral-colored tassels give this plant a fun summer vibe. But it’s still neutral enough to enjoy in your home year-round. It also makes such cute office decor.

How to Make a Felt Aloe Vera Plant
- Gather your craft tools and materials. Then download the pattern below.
- Cut out felt pieces according to the pattern. Our aloe plant has 3 large leaves, 4 medium leaves, and 2 small leaves total.
- Sew seed stitches onto the leaf pieces using two strands of the ecru embroidery floss. Start stitching about 1/2″ from the bottom with a majority of the stitches concentrated at the base.
- Pin together two matching pieces and blanket stitch together starting at the base, using two strands of matching embroidery floss.
