I can never have enough plants around the home, they are the perfect way to add life and happiness to any space. If you’re like me though this ‘life’ only lasts 6 months tops as I am the ultimate accidental plant serial killer (no really… I’ve killed 2 yukkas recently…they’re meant to be indestructible!) But never fear fellow plant murderers, there’s a new craft trend here to save the day – paper plants.
From the incredibly life-like to the fun and abstract, paper plants are taking over. Plant them in a real plant pot to finish off the look or craft one from paper too. They’re much more fun than artificial plants and cost barely anything to make. Here’s my round up of 15 fave ideas that have left me feeling inspired.
