How to Make Paper Houseplants

Spring is in bloom! Decorate for the season with lifelike Paper Houseplants. Grab mint colored cardstock, paper bags, spanish moss and more to create the perfect plants for any tabletop or desk space.
  • 1 Cut the floral foam

    Cut the floral foam to fit inside the lunch bag. Cut about a 1" hole into the top center of the foam.

  • 2 Prepare the bag

    Open the lunch bag and roll the top edge down a few times. Place the floral foam inside the bag. Add some half marbles along the sides to weigh the bag down.

  • 3 Cut out the leaves

    Print and cut out the leaf templates. Trace them onto the cardstock and cut out.

  • 4 Fold the leaves

    Slightly fold the bottom section of the leaves vertically. Use the edge of a pencil to lightly curl some of the ends.

  • 5 Arrange the leaves

    Using the photo as a guide, arrange the leaves into the center of the foam and hot glue into place.

  • 6 Add moss

    Cut some moss or excelsior and cover the foam.

  • 7 Wrap jute & tie a bow

    Wrap jute around the bag under the rolled edge and tie into a bow.
