Pretty in Pink

These felt anthurium flowers are a perfect complement to your spring entryway or tablescape. Arrange them as a potted plant, place individual stems in a bud vase, or add them to an even bigger tropical bouquet. They’d also make a fabulous centerpiece for any tropical-themed celebration.

The color of your felt anthurium plant is up to you and the palette of your imagination. Krista chose our wool-blend felt in two shades of pink for the delicate spathes, added a basic embroidery stitch in a deeper shade for the veins, and finished a few with a splash of PanPastel in a vibrant yellow-green. We’d love to see your version, so be sure to share it with us in our crafter’s community or on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia.

Skill Level: Beginner

Stitches used: Double-running stitch (for the veins). Need more guidance on this stitch? Check out our free embroidery guide for a photo tutorial.

Crafting tip: If you decide to use PanPastel on your felt anthurium plant, you can protect the color with a fixative spray.

How to Make a Felt Anthurium Plant

  1. Gather your tools and materials. Then download the flower template below.
  2. Cut out felt according to template using scissors or a cutting machine with a rotary blade.
  3. If desired to create a pink-green look, apply a bit of PanPastel beforehand around the edges of the spathe, both sides. Spray with a fixative and let dry.
  4. Using the PDF as a guide, sew double-running stitches to make the veins. Start with an evenly spaced running stitch using 1 strand of pink embroidery floss up the middle.
