As your best crafting bud, we’re here to give you the scoop on the latest trends in the crafting industry. One trend that’s been on the rise lately is paper plants—for your home, parties, and everything in between!
Let us show you what we mean…
Brittany Watson Jepsen of The House That Lars Built is basically the queen of paper plants. She does tons (and we mean TONS!) of paper plant and flower projects on her blog and YouTube channel. Here are 18 of her personal favorite paper plant tutorials.
In a similar fashion, Brit + Co, a media company that celebrates women and creativity, rounded up their top 12 favorite paper plant projects from different bloggers.
Today we want to show you some of our own paper plant creations! We love this trend (especially because it doesn’t make you feel like a bad plant parent), and we have a feeling it will really grow on you, too (Eh? Eh?). 😉
Look at these beauties! We cut the shapes using two of our Cricut® collections (see recipe at bottom of post), and then attached the finished leaves to wire with a hot glue gun. Add them to pots filled with paper crinkle, pebbles, etc, and voila! You’ve got three amazing plants that will live forever!
If making paper plants from scratch seems a bit overwhelming, or if you don’t own a Cricut® machine, we’ve got just the solution for you. Try out our Welcome Home wreath kit, which comes with all the pieces pre-cut AND instructions with step-by-step photos.
Did we mention it’s only $18.95 (US)? It can’t get much better than that—except that it does, because you can also get it FREE with a qualifying purchase!
The kit’s only available until the end of January though, so if it’s calling your name, get it before it’s gone!
Another fun idea is to play around with arranging paper plants and leaves in picture frames. By slightly bending the leaves here, these plants seem to be growing out of the picture frame.
What do you think of this trend? Yea or nay? Tell us in the comments below!
