Begin by downloading and printing the free pattern from the link above. Cut out each of the shapes from the wool fabric using the pattern.
Heat up your hot glue gun and take the biggest leaf pattern (the one shown on the very left). You’ll want to fold the two lips that don’t have a leaf attached together, using a dab of hot glue to secure them.
Do the same to the smaller leaf shape. You’ll now have two folded succulent shapes!
Tightly roll up the third piece with the pointed ridges and secure the edge with another dab of hot glue.
You can now begin assembling all the pieces together. Take the largest leaf shape and attach its bottom to the circle to create a base. Then attach the smaller of the leaf shapes nestled in the center of the larger leaf. Finally, the rolled up third piece can be glued in the center of the smaller leaf to create your succulent.
If you want to add some color and dimension to your succulent, you can add some colour using eyeshadow or chalk pastels, like we did here.
Finally, attach your succulent to the magnet with another dab of hot glue.
Make a few to really make your fridge stand out! You can experiment with different colours of wool and chalk pastel/eyeshadow to create a beautiful succulent garden for your fridge.
