DIY: Pretty and Carefree Paper Plants


DIY: Pretty and Carefree Paper Plants

May 17, 2016

Not everyone has a green thumb. Our recommendation? DIY some carefree paper plants with the help of Corrie Beth Hogg. All it takes is a one-time investment of an hour or two, plus some paper, wire, and glue.

Hogg is a lifelong designer and crafter, and as the Special Projects Designer for David Stark Design, has contributed to Martha Stewart Living, Martha Stewart Weddings, Domino, InStyle, Elle Decor, Anthology, and more. Currently she is also a contributor for the The House That Lars Built. A full list of her paper plants can be found on her website and on her blog, Apple of My DIY.
