Ok, I know what you’re thinking. “Why would anyone want a fabric plant”? Well, I have no idea, I just wanted one so I made one. Isn’t that what creativity is all about anyway? Let’s face it, silk plants are a plenty, but ones made with your fabric scraps, well, they’re all one of a kind! I may actually start inventing new plants just to see what I can come up with.
Rebar tie wire
About 2 yards of fabric scraps (mine were green strips left over from some curtains)
Sewing machine (I'm digging my Bernina!)
Block of Styrofoam
Cut about 40 triangles in different sizes. Mine ranged from 8” to 20” long and never more than 4” wide at the base.
Fold the triangle in half and sew up to the tip. Since we are not turning these inside out, all you have to do is make sure you can slip your wire inside.
Stick the excess in the Styrofoam, put the plant in a planter box, and keep going until your plant comes to life.
P.S. That's my craft house in the background.
This project is from THE BIG ASS BOOK OF HOME DECOR
Soon to be available as an E-book in full color!
