Our papercut greenhouse luminary has so many beautiful and intricate details. For example, behind the vellum windows is a papercut layer depicting a bunch of houseplants in the greenhouse. Once you assemble this project, you can use it as home decor. Or it would also be fun to craft for an outdoor celebration or a garden-themed party this spring.

Skill level: Beginner

Crafting tips: We recommend using medium-weight cardstock paper due to the delicate design. This way, your papercut greenhouse luminary will be more sturdy. Also, a glue dot roller works well to adhere to the vellum smoothly.
