We were asked to fill hanging baskets with fake plants. The issues were I truly despise plastic in the form of plants because its not only toxic but non-biodegradable. So instead we utilized whole foods bags to represent ivy.
What was wonderful about using the paper bags is their durability and texture. We made patterns for various leaf sizes and applied a series of folds into each leaf to add a three-dimensional quality. The final touch to give it depth is apply layers of various shades of green.
Our supplies included hot glue, paper bags, wire, and paint.
