We can’t get over how stunning this frosted paper prayer plant is! This plant is like a piece of art, and Meagan has replicated it beautifully using our own frosted paper and some art markers. Because the leaves of this plant are wide and oval-shaped, it is very easy to cut by hand. However, you can always use your cutting machine if you prefer.

This plant is known as the prayer plant because its leaves turn upward every evening. While our frosted paper prayer plant doesn’t have that ability, we think it’s just as beautiful as the real thing. Furthermore, you can easily create your own version of this gorgeous plant with our pattern and step-by-step tutorial — we believe in you!
One of the fun characteristics of this plant is that its leaves are variegated, which leaves a lot of room for creativity. Our PDF template includes an illustration that you can use as a guide, or you can play around with how you color your leaves. For instance, a prayer plant typically has a white, silver, or light green shade that runs down the spine of the leaf, and the veins that run up the leaves can be different shades of red, light green, or silver. Similarly, the underside of the leaves can also be a shade of red, gray-green, or purple-green. For our frosted payer prayer plant, Meagan chose to color the leaves using dark green, light green, and pink markers.
We would love to see how you color your plant and what you think of this project! As always, you can post pictures on Facebook or Instagram and tag #MadeWithLia. Or share and reach out on our private Facebook group for members.
