Autumn in the Desert

More commonly known as a Black-Eyed Susan, the Rudbeckia ‘Sahara’ is a flower variety with a chocolatey brown center and petals that range in colors from dusty pink and copper to amber — perfect for fall decorating. To replicate this, we used a combination of pastels blending out from the center of the flower.

I love the earthy, rustic look of these flowers. Place them in a pitcher near your kitchen window to add a little warmth to these cooler days, or add a few felt eucalyptus stems for a more elegant arrangement. These would make a gorgeous centerpiece for your Thanksgiving table or any other autumnal celebration. 

We’d love to see where your felt Rudbeckia Sahara flowers end up, so please share your pics in our crafters’ community or on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia.
