This month’s collection features a variety of desert-inspired projects, including our felt barrel cactus and our cactus wall hanging. We have made quite a few cactus crafts over the years. So we’re branching out today by making another plant that can be found in the desert. Designed by Meagan, our frosted paper yucca plant is simple to cut by hand and easy to assemble using a high-temp hot glue gun.
When you’re ready to craft this project, check out our supplies list below. Then download the template and tutorial at the bottom of the post.
Yuccan do it
If you’re new to making paper plants, this frosted paper yucca plant is the perfect project for you. It’s also a fun one because it involves some coloring. You can use the same PanPastel colors we used to add more detail to the leaves. Or you can experiment with different colors to make your own variegated leaves. Either way you will end up with a unique plant!
Skill level: Beginner
Crafting tips: Be sure not to blend the colors too much to avoid it getting muddy. Use a clean sponge to soften the edge of each color.
