Make a plant that will never die using old scraps of fabric and paint! Perfect if you have a black thumb like I do!

Step 1: Watch the Video Tutorial Here!

Step 2: You'll Need

Iron

E-6000 Stitchless

Americana Multi-Surface Satin in Chick and Turf Green

White cotton fabric

18 gage wire

Paintbrushes

Decorative pot

Styrofoam block

Wire cutters

Step 3: Make the Leaves

Cut several different sizes of long triangles that are 3'' at the base

Press them in half

Add E-6000 Stitchless to the inner edge and press closed

*Make sure not to close the base of the triangle

You will need about 30 triangles depending on the size of the plant you want

Step 4: Paint and "plant"

Paint the center of each leaf on both sides with the color of your choice *I used Turf Green and lightened it with white

Paint the edges in another color *I used Chick

Cut wire pieces 3" longer than each leaf and insert into the leaves

Shape the Styrofoam block to the size of your pot

Add the leaves to the block and create your plant

very cool.
Thanks so much Susie!
