upcycled bag succulent plants

We’re succas for succulents

My team and I have made many variations of succulents over the years. But I have really wanted to create something that would be simple for anyone to make and wouldn’t require you to buy a bunch of supplies. One version that has been tapping me on the shoulder is to use recycled material and markers or colored pencils on hand. So besides a recycled grocery bag and color, all you need for this DIY craft are a pair of scissors and some glue.

This freebie includes the templates for three succulents in a PDF and an SVG file for cutting machines. The PDF is also arranged so every piece needed is on your print. This will give you the option to use the PDF printed onto cardstock as your material for the finished succulent if you choose a paper other than the kraft bag.
