Spring has finally sprung! Crafting the colors of the season is a great way to bring the beauty of the outside, indoors. Although we’ve made these beautiful anthurium blooms before, this pink-green felt anthurium plant is a new, updated design by Krista and features different-sized spathes and leaves for a little variety.
Ready to start crafting these pretty pink blooms? Check out our supplies list below, then download our template and tutorial at the end of the post.
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
- Gather your tools and materials. Then download the flower template below.
- Cut out felt according to template using scissors or a cutting machine with a rotary blade.
- 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.
- 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.

Could you explain a little more about how to round off the tip of the spadix, step 12? Are we cutting the felt to round it off? Are we trying to manipulate the felt with our fingers to make it rounded?
This is my first attempt at a cricut cut felt project. So far this is wonderful and my hands are happier to not cut by hand.
Hi Brenda. Use the glue on the inside of the felt to soften it and mold it into a rounded tip. I love the way felt responds to glue and makes it moldable.
Thank you for the downloads. I am new to paper flowers/Cricut and your shopping site. I have ordered and made lilies at Easter out of crepe paper but look forward to making felt Anthurium, etc. You are an inspiration. My history has been in textile design using a Knitting Machine but I lost 3 machines in the Camp Fire in Paradise, CA along with my home and all my pictures and belongings. I am now in a small apartment and unable to return to that particular craft. I look forward to my new adventure.
Thanks for sharing your story, Carol. You are truly a creative soul. I am so sorry to hear about the loss from the fire. Heartbreaking. We welcome you here with open arms. 🙂
