18 best paper plant tutorials

It’s no secret I’m prematurely welcoming spring in so I thought I’d jump the gun a bit more with some of my favorite paper plant tutorials and inspiration out on the web, in random order. My paper plants (#5 on this list) were my most popular post of 2015, so clearly you are liking them as well! In my free time I’d love to make a bunch for my house, which doesn’t get too much light.

Get the complete list after the jump!

#1. I love the color palette Jessica of Bramble Workshop used on these pretty papier mache cacti for Hello Lucky! This one doesn’t come with a tutorial, but it’s great for color palette inspiration.
