Steps for DIY Lent Centerpiece
1) Tie each corner of the felt box:
a) Cut string into 4 equal pieces
b) Pinch one corner. From the outside, thread one string through both holes. Tie in a knot
c) Repeat on the other 3 corners
2) Add moss to felt basket. Be careful, it can be messy!
3) Add cross to one end of the basket
4) Create the succulents
a) Heat your hot glue gun (low temp preferred).
b) Separate the three sets of felt leaves. Each is a different color and includes a long strip of leaves and one final leaf. The lightest green with purple set also contains two ‘flower’ looking leaf sets
c) Begin with one set. Starting at the smallest leaf in the strip, add glue to the bottom and roll. Continue until the whole strip is rolled. If desired, add the final leaf to cover the seam.
d) On the light green with purple set only, glue the rolled leaves to the smaller ‘flower.’ pinch the leaves around the roll and glue as desired. Add this to the larger ‘flower.’ Pinch and glue as desired
5) Tuck succulents into moss and enjoy your new Lenten centerpiece!
