Monsteras are a popular tropical house plant known for their large, deep green leaves and holes that appear naturally in mature leaves. This is why its nickname is the “Swiss cheese plant.” Since we already have this paper version, our designer Krista decided to make a felt monstera plant for our May collection.
This is a beginner-friendly project and one we actually recommend cutting by hand. However, you can always use your Maker or Cameo 4 if you prefer to use your machine to cut felt.
Our felt monstera plant is a great way to bring some tropical greenery into your home — and enjoy it year-round if you like! Simply place your stems together into a pot with some filler paper and stones. Or add a few stems to a vase. Another fun idea is to use them in an arrangement with some of our felt tropical flowers, like this felt tropical bouquet.
Whatever you decide to do with your monstera stems, they will be easy to arrange and shape since each leaf is wired. Our tutorial also shows you how to make an unfurling new leaf and draw veins on to make your felt monstera plant look more realistic.
Skill level: Beginner-friendly
Crafting tip: To make our potted plant, we placed five stems together in a pot, filled it with crumpled kraft paper, and added some small stones on top.
