Create a Paper Succulent Wall for Spring

It seems that every year about this time I am pretty much done with winter and longing for the warmth, fresh greenery, and flowers that come along with spring. So, since the weather isn’t cooperating with me yet, I figured I would craft a little greenery to brighten up my space until spring comes. This paper succulent wall turned out even better than I hoped, and I have a feeling it’s going to stay up well into summer.

Hey, everyone! It’s Kara from A Kailo Chic Life. I am so excited to share how to make your own paper succulent wall art using just scrapbook paper, scissors, and hot glue!

To begin you will need several shades of green cardstock, a hot glue gun, glue sticks, and scissors.

Begin by either printing out a template for felt succulents, or just free hand cut the paper to create various succulent shapes. I wanted these succulents to be large, so I used 4-5 pieces of 12″ by 12″ cardstock for each succulent.

For the first succulent, I simply cut wavy strips of paper and glued them together to create a grass-like effect.

Next, I cut simple leaf shapes in several sizes and glued them together from largest to smallest to create a pointed looking succulent.

One of the most time consuming but realistic looking paper succulents was made by cutting several dozen ways shaped petals and gluing them tightly together.

Once you have created 20 or so succulents, use double sided mounting tape to hang your succulent arrangement up on your wall.

Now that’s a “living” succulent wall I can actually keep alive! Ha!

So, how do you bring greenery and flowers into your home for spring?
