This paper succulents centerpiece project was originally created by Nancy Keslin for the Core’dinations Core Blog.
Bring the beauty of the desert into your home with this gorgeous and trendy paper succulents centerpiece! Avoid the stress of keeping real plants alive and instead create this paper centerpiece using your favorite colored cardstock! This easy and homemade paper centerpiece is perfect for any time of year, and if you wish to make it more specific to a certain season or holiday, simply change the colors of paper you use and the types of flowers or plants! This centerpiece is not only perfect for adding a decorative touch to tablescapes but is also a great side table accent, as well as kitchen or bathroom decor.
Paper Succulents Centerpiece Supplies:

Step 1. Cut your leaf shapes by hand from a template or using your electronic cutter and your favorite colors of Tim Holtz Kraft Core papers. I chose a few shades of green and blue, but remember, you can customize this project using any flowers and any colored paper you would like! Be creative!
Step 2. Assemble succulents.
Step 3. Create box from cut file from Tim Holtz Kraft Core Shattered collection. I chose a long rectangular box, but feel free to choose any shape you’d like and cut it out from neutral paper.
Step 4. Cut styrofoam pieces to fill box and create a substrate to glue the succulents on.
Step 5. Hot glue each of the succulents to styrofoam.
Step 6. Fill blank spaces between the succulents with Spanish moss.
