If you follow us on Instagram, you might remember us sharing a little sneak peek of this plant on our Instagram stories. Isn’t it gorgeous?? We just love how this crepe paper heartleaf philodendron turned out. And today we’re going to show you how to make your own paper version of this indoor plant with our pattern and tutorial.
We love plants, but we prefer to craft our own versions out of paper or felt. You don’t have to water a paper plant, you can keep it forever, and you don’t have to worry about it harming your pets. This particular plant is poisonous to cats and dogs, so we definitely recommend making this crepe paper heartleaf philodendron instead of bringing the real plant into your home.
To achieve the shiny, dark green leaves of the heartleaf philodendron, our designer Meagan used mod podge on our double-sided crepe paper in ferns and moss. She also used a Copic sketch marker to darken the leaves and give them more detail. When you’re ready to color your own paper leaves, you can use our template as a guide.
If you need some ideas for where to keep your crepe paper heartleaf philodendron, we think it looks great on a table, on a shelf, or as a hanging plant. Once you’ve crafted yours, share it with us! Just post pictures on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia. You can also share pictures on our Facebook page for members. Happy crafting! ~ Lia and team
