Our frosted paper Hoya Obovata plant is a great way to bring some gorgeous trailing greenery into your home. This is an easy craft project that is simple to cut by hand and would look beautiful in one of our macrame plant hangers. Or you could always place it on a shelf and have it trailing over the edge.
To get started, check out our tools and materials list below. Then download our template and step-by-step instructions.
Happy hoya days!
We know December is typically a time for Christmas greenery, but this paper Hoya Obovata will make a lovely addition to your home after the holiday season is over. Or, if you aren’t decorating for Christmas, go ahead and make this plant now! Typically this plant needs a lot of light to thrive, but crafting it out of paper means you can enjoy it any time of the year.
The Hoya Obovata is known for its large, oval-shaped leaves, which are often speckled with white flecks, and long tendrils. To bring our paper plant to life, Meagan designed six different leaf shapes and added some white dots with a paint marker. For the tendrils, she used our natural bind wire and colored it green with a brush marker. When you are ready to craft your paper Hoya Obovata, just follow our tutorial below and be sure to let us know if you have any questions!
