Luckily for you and me, succulents are still trending, and it is no wonder why. They are cute, exotic, small, and easy to care for. Whether or not you have a green thumb, you can brighten up your space by making some paper succulents in no time. Upcycle some cans by wrapping them in some bright gold foiled papers and you’ll have some superb decor on your hands.
Gold foiled specialty papers from Pebbles are my favorite for making home decor items. I used two different papers and wrapped them around this regular ol’ can to create a bright and trendy succulent “planter”.
Have fun with the colors of your succulents. Create an off-beat color scheme or one that matches your decor. That’s the beauty of creating paper plants. Using textured cardstock gives the plants a more life-like feel, too.
These gold polka dots are my favorite. My favorite pencil cup is wrapped in the exact same paper. To make this Christmas cactus, die cut two of each piece and adhere on both sides of a narrow gauge floral wire. This will allow you to bend and twist the limbs until they are just right.
Plant your paper succulents in a container full of rice. It makes it easy to rearrange your plants and the weight of the rice holds the container in place. Want more fun ideas for upcycling or repurposing cans? Click HERE or stop by the Pebbles Blog and search “upcycle” in the search bar.
