Succulent Summer!

We're highlighting various crafts & products involving these gorgeous plants.



Succulents are made for summer. These low maintenance plants can tolerate high heat, low water, and if put indoors can also manage lower light and light watering.


They are also visually captivating plants that can be incorporated into several

summer art & crafts projects!

Wool felt sheets are softer, more pliable, higher quality felt than acrylic sheets, and are perfect for making more realistic or pop-color succulents!
