Cute Cactus Decor

We hope cactus decor never goes out of style because we love to get creative with our cacti designs. Plus crafting your own cactus out of felt or paper means you can keep it around forever. And you don’t have to worry about sharp spines.

With its detailed stitching, pretty felt flowers, and decorative felt pot, this felt Saguaro cactus will definitely stand out in your home. Since this cactus involves some intricate stitches in addition to sewing, we’re calling it an intermediate project. We highly recommend making it, especially if you want to keep growing your crafting skills! And remember, you can always reach out to us if you have any questions.

How to Make a Felt Saguaro Cactus

  1. Gather your craft tools and materials. Then download the cactus pattern listed on the right hand side at the top of this post.
  2. Cut out your felt pieces according to the pattern, using scissors or a Cricut Maker.
  3. Sew a long line down the middle of one of the cactus body pieces using a backstitch and three strands of light green embroidery floss. You can use a disappearing ink pen to make a straight line guide.
  4. Every two stitches, sew two more small stitches on both sides of the line to make a small “V.”
