Every now and then I like to take one of our kits and see what I can create with it. Typically I take the flower kits and mix them up to create paper flower bouquets (like this one). So this time I decided to take one of our greenery kits and see what I could make! This creative exploration resulted in four frosted paper plants that are absolutely gorgeous.

If you do not want to purchase the kit, I have included the fern and eucalyptus patterns below for you to download. Because the paper leaves are intricate, I recommend using a cutting machine. But you can also use our template if you want to cut by hand.

Our pattern includes two designs for the paper fern leaves and two designs for the paper eucalyptus leaves. Once you have cut all of your greenery, our tutorial will show you how simple it is to bundle your leaves together to create some frosted paper plants you can display anywhere in your home.

To give our plants more depth, we varied the colors so each plant includes at least three different shades. This is a great opportunity for you to play around with colors and see what you like best! When you are done crafting your paper eucalyptus and fern plants, be sure to share photos of your creations with us on our private Facebook page for members or by tagging #MadeWithLia on Instagram.

How to Make Frosted Paper Plants

  1. Gather the craft tools and materials you need from our list. 
  2. Pop out all paper ferns and eucalyptus from our frosted paper kit, or use our SVG files to cut the leaves from frosted paper.
  3. With a high-temp glue gun, attach binding wire to centers of each greenery piece. Gently shape longer leaves with curling tool.
  4. Arrange into bundle with wired sides facing down. Twist wires to create a bundle.
