DIY Paper Philodendron Bipinnatifidum

 

DIY PAPER PLANTS / Philodendron bipinnatifidum

Hello,

I thought I’d make a DIY Paper Philodendron bipinnatifidum because I was rather inspired by the paper plant making in this post here. Besides that, I kind of think they’d be much easier to make than pronounce correctly … don’t you? Oh boy, bipinnatifidum is a tricky one indeed! I also really like the idea of giving faux plants a little handmade soul. Plastic plants can appear rather faux looking but if they were crafted with love, that gives them a whole other reason to enjoy.

REQUIREMENTS / METHOD:

  • Paint a multi coloured green – toned wash over a A4 piece of paper with water colour paints. Philodendron bipinnatifidum have all sorts of pigmentation imperfections so you can be as creative as you like.

  •  Then sketch around a Philodendron bipinnatifidum or you could try doing a freehand sketch and draw one. Then using scissors or stanley knife cut your leaf out.
  • Using another A4 piece of green washed paper, roll up florists- wire in a really tight roll.
  • Using a glue gun, stick edges down super neatly.
  • Leave the florists wire poking out at least five centimeters at one end of your stem.
  • Using your glue gun, attach your leaf to your stem.
  • Lastly poke the end wires into a pot with potting mix inside and rotate around until they look as realistic as possible.
