Plus, they’ll never die.
If you can’t seem to keep any type of plant alive (even one as low maintenance as a succulent or cactus) or you’re just looking to try something new, opt for paper foliage. These designs look so life-like that your family and friends won’t notice they’re not real... until they get up close. We worked with designer, maker, and handcrafted lifestyle expert Lia Griffith to create a DIY paper succulent project you’ll want to tackle this weekend.
