Let the paper plant crafting party continue! Today I am showing you the swiss cheese plant also known as monstera obliqua. She is kinda like the darling daughter of everyone’s favorite – the monstera deliciosa! (We’re working up to the deliciosa!) What’s not to like about a plant named for cheese? Anyhow, I’ve had so much fun sharing with y’all some of my best-loved plants made from paper! You can find ‘em here! And, I’m honored to share another one today! Read on to learn how to make a paper swiss cheese plant!!
- Various green papers in text weight
- Green tissue paper
- Small scrap of brown paper
- Scissors and knife
- Wire cutters
- Green paper covered wires
- Hot glue gun and Uhu glue stick
- Pot of your choice
- Foam and gravel
- Green floral/corsage tape
- Divide your paper into quarters and cut out the leaf shape. Add a length of wire with hot glue along the center.
- Use the glue stick to add a strip of tissue paper to your leaf to cover the wire and hot glue.
- Cut out several oblique ovals along each side of the leaf.
- Add a little shape and variety to the leaves, but folding the paper and bending the wire.
- Make a baby leaf. Cut a smaller leaf and twist it around the end of wire and secure with hot glue. Tear a small piece of brown paper (it can be just a brown paper bag), secure with hot glue as well and finish off with green corsage tape.
- Using the corsage tape, secure the wires together to make a vine and add a small piece of brown paper to each connection.
- Prep your pot with foam and gravel.
- Assemble your plant! Tah-dah, you’re done!Project and photography by Corrie Beth Hogg of The Apple of My DIY
