I can’t help but fall for trends. They are an exciting way of bringing a fresh start to you home when you might be getting a little bored of what’s around you. They come and go, which is why I love to create quirky pieces that I can have fun with for the time being until another trend rolls in. Like these DIY Tropical Paper Foliage!

4. Simply tape to any surface – I chose a fun wooden trellis. Continue until you have the desired amount of paper foliage!

I love the statement it makes – it adds great color and texture to the walls! I originally created this foliage for a fun backdrop for my son’s birthday, but it would also make a great sculptural piece as well. And who can complain, these big tropical leaves are the kind that will never die! We are sure having fun with it in our house.
