INSIDE : See how to make DIY Paper Cactus plants and Grasses you could ever want! And the best part is you don’t even need to have a green thumb to do it.
If you have been around here for long, you know I’m a big plant lover. I love house plants. I love outdoor plants. I love air plants. I love cactus. There really are not many plants that I don’t love, if we are being honest.
When Oriental Trading told us that our November’s Supply of the Month project would be using Full Color Spectrum Paper Pack, I knew right away that I wanted to create DIY Paper Cactus plants and Grasses. And, the best part is you can keep these plants “alive” year round, whether you are a gardening expert or a repeated black thumb!
Here is the thing, I love simple projects that LOOK harder than they are. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy and fun these were to make.
Don’t get me wrong, I will forever love the real deal plants… but these paper ones might be a very close second. You can mix and match the color of paper and the embellishments to fit your exact style and taste.
I loved pairing bright colored papers, bright colored rocks and simple white pots. They made such a lovely contrast against each other.
I shared the full tutorial along with a template for creating each cactus and grass I made. And if you can use scissors and hold a bottle of glue, this is a DIY worth trying out.
You can see all the supplies I used over at Oriental Trading’s blog.
And the pink and white rocks just kind of make it, don’t you think? #swoon Both of those rocks are available at Oriental Trading.
If you are looking for all the cute with no ouch, then this is a must try project! See my how-to over to Fun365, Oriental Trading‘s blog, today.
