10 ways to jump on the Banana Leaf Trend

Banana Leaves.  Have you been seeing them pop up all over the place, like me?  I feel like they were everywhere a few years ago and then they slowly tapered away.  And now that it’s warming up and summer is on the way, I’ve been seeing them everywhere I look.  Being a #plantnerd already, I am jumping in on this trend with both feet first!  From fashion, to fabric, to using the actual leaf to create containers, today I am sharing some of my very favorite DIYs that embrace this idea.  See 10 ways to jump on the Banana Leaf Trend below!

      Couldn’t agree more… and everything Sarah M. Dorsey does makes me swoon! =)

  5. Wow, I feel so out of the loop, I had no idea banana leaves was a trend. That’s one reason I love blogs and pinterest, they keep me up to date! Even though I didn’t know they were a trend, I’ve gotta say I love it! I love the large scale prints in particular.

  7. Love banana leaves I actually buy them frozen and use them in cooking. Food wrapped in banana leaves as it’s cooked tastes great. But now I know they are on trend I’ll be lookin at them in a different way. Thanks
