Frightening Ferns

You will only need to cut eight leaves to create your black paper fern. To give your fern some more definition between the leaves, you can also cut leaves out of grey translucent vellum paper and add them to the undersides. Once you’re done, pair it with our black paper succulents and our needle-felted raven to create an even eerier Halloween display.

How to Make a Black Paper Fern

  1. Gather your craft tools and materials. Then download the fern template below.
  2. Cut paper according to the template notes, using your scissors or a cutting machine.
  3. Glue a piece of wire in the middle of vellum fern leaf with tacky glue.
  4. Place a black paper fern leaf over the vellum fern leaf, gluing only where the wire lays.
