If you follow me on Instagram, I shared a little sneak peek of this plant last week! Our designer Meagan made a few new paper plants for us recently, and this paper arrowhead vine is the first one we’re posting. Not only is it a great statement piece for your home or office, but it’s also very easy to make.
Just download our DIY pattern below to get started. And then follow our photo tutorial as we guide you through the plant-making process! The design for our paper arrowhead vine is simple to cut by hand, but we have included the SVG file as well if you want your cutting machine to cut and score your paper for you.
A Vine So Fine
Trailing vines and plants always look so gorgeous. Typically this plant likes a warm and humid environment, which means you have to spray it frequently and keep the soil moist. It also grows pretty rapidly, so you have to cut it back regularly, depending on how much growth you prefer. And it is toxic to cats and dogs. However, the good news is that when you make it out of paper, you don’t have to stress about any of these things!
Once you craft this paper arrowhead vine, you can just place it anywhere in your home and enjoy it. The trailing greenery is such a great pop of green, and it will look great on an end table, mantel, or shelf. You could also make a plant hanger to hang it up in! If you love trailing plants, our heartleaf philodendron is another beautiful plant to craft out of paper.
