We have a new paper plant tutorial for you! Our paper alocasia is a striking plant that is simple to make and will look so gorgeous in your home. To show you just how easy this plant is to make out of paper, we have created a video tutorial for you to follow along.

Because the shapes are larger, this plant is a great one to cut by hand. But of course you can always use your cutting machine, if you prefer.

Say alo to our new favorite plant

If you want a plant that will stand out, try making our paper alocasia and let us know what you think! This exotic plant is also toxic to dogs and cats, so we highly recommend creating this plant out of paper if you have pets at home.

When making a plant out of paper, we always look at its main characteristics. Alocasia plants feature leaves that are shaped like arrowheads or hearts and have thick, white veins. Some varieties can also have more color in their leaves, so you can always play around with your colors if you want to get more creative with this project.

To recreate these details, Meagan used a white paint marker and also drew on additional lines with a dark green marker. This along with using our frosted green paper makes our plant look more realistic. 

Skill level: Beginner

Crafting tip: Shape the leaves using a curling tool before the Mod Podge fully dries.
