I can never have enough plants around the home, they are the perfect way to add life and happiness to any space. If you’re like me though this ‘life’ only lasts 6 months tops as I am the ultimate accidental plant serial killer (no really… I’ve killed 2 yukkas recently…they’re meant to be indestructible!) But never fear fellow plant murderers, there’s a new craft trend here to save the day – paper plants.

From the incredibly life-like to the fun and abstract, paper plants are taking over. Plant them in a real plant pot to finish off the look or craft one from paper too. They’re much more fun than artificial plants and cost barely anything to make. Here’s my round up of 15 fave ideas that have left me feeling inspired.

TRANSFORM A BENCH SEAT INTO A CUTE PLANTER STAND

Up until last week, all plants which came into contact with my balcony were on the extinction list. It seems Ella our puppy has discovered they taste rather great and was slowly destroying them until they were ready to completely give up on life. It was time to get myself a planter stand and naturally I had to put my own DIY touch on something as a store bought one will never do!

If found this Kimberley bench seat from Super Amart which is meant for high bar tables so is the perfect height for a planter stand. It’s super solid too so will easily hold lots of bigger plant pots.

With a lick of white paint and a scallop edging addition, I turned it into a super cute little planter stand which has kept my balcony looking very organised and safe from the wrath of Ella.

A really fun weekend DIY project which is still simple enough that anyone can do it. It’s simply making over an existing bench – no power tools or mess here folks!

Watch my video below to see how to make one for yourself
