Now, this is the kind of snail you want in your garden! This felt snail that Krista designed is just too cute, and we love the pink and peachy shades she chose to make it in. As always, you can make your snail in any kind of felt color you want.
To help you make this sweet, little fella, we have a pattern and tutorial for you to follow. Plus you can find all of the supplies we used linked on the right hand side of this post.

This felt snail would make a fun addition to a felt veggie garden for kids. You can craft your own garden using the patterns from our felt root vegetables project as well as these garden signs and markers. We also have a felt watering can, a felt gnome, and some cute felt mushrooms you can make. All of these craft projects are perfect for pretend play, and you can even make a magical garden alphabet poster to hang in your little one’s room.
As with most of our 3D felt animals, this felt snail is somewhere between a beginner and intermediate project. We’d love to see your version of this felt craft, so be sure to share photos with us on our Facebook page for members or by using the hashtag #MadeWithLia on Instagram.
