Back in February, we showed you how to create a crepe paper version of this trailing plant. It is so gorgeous and easy to make, but today we have come out with an even simpler version! You can craft this paper heartleaf philodendron in just 10 steps using our DIY template and photo tutorial as a guide.

Once you’ve potted your paper heartleaf philodendron, you can place it on your mantel, a shelf, or an end table. Anywhere it trails over will look beautiful!

Perfect for Plant Lovers

This paper heartleaf philodendron is perfect for plant lovers with a brown thumb. Or anyone who has pets. Heartleaf philodendrons are toxic to cats and dogs, so this version is much safer to keep in your home. And, you don’t have to trim it or water it!

If you like trailing vines, another great one to craft is our paper arrowhead vine. This paper plant is pictured below along with our begonia maculata and our heart-leaf hoya. All of these plants are easy ones to craft and will look amazing in your home or office.

We have another interesting paper plant that we will be sharing next week, so stay tuned! In the meantime, feel free to reach out if you have any questions while crafting. And don’t forget to share what you craft with us by tagging @liagriffith or #MadeWithLia on Instagram or Facebook.
