For the love of house plants.

I love love love having flowers in the house. 

I just can't keep them alive
Just call me "death-thumb" but 
I can't keep green things alive for the life of me 

Fortunately for me I've got these babies: 

Aren't they great? 

I found a wonderful tutorial over here for these rolled paper beauties. 

I didn't know where to look for florist wire here in Korea, 
so I just trimmed down some old wire hangers 
and covered them in green tissue paper. 

Add a mason jar and some coffee beans 
(my husband graciously sacrificed some)
and you're done! 

If you want to get fancy you can even spray them 
with a bit of your favorite perfume! 

The best part is that I can't kill 'em. 



  1. You may need automatic water supply system for your plant! then you will become Green Thumb!!! :D Those flowers look good tho

  2. My thumb isn't green either. And cute necklace you made. :)

  3. Cute flowers! I tend to kill plants...I should make some of these. ;)

    P.S. I love that you put coffee beans in a mason jar - I'm planning on doing that for my wedding in October!

  4. the paper flowers are so so so pretty! xo hugs I am participating in WILW this week too! so happy to visit you!

  5. um SWOON!!!! SOOOOOOO cute!!!!!!!

  6. Oh I love this! The paper, the jar, the coffee beans... BRILLIANT! So so pretty.

    BTW, I am hosting a quilt giveaway on my blog... feel free to check it out and I hope you have a great weekend!

  7. Moto could kill them....if he's anything like Misi, who eats real flowers and anything paper, while staring at me to see how I'll react. Freaking cat.

    They're beautiful :) I think I'll have to try this for my house!

  8. Those are beautiful! I love them!

  9. I love the flowers. Can't wait to try making them, too! Thanks for sharing :)

  10. Those are so great! I totally have a brown thumb, so I'm going to have to try this out.:)

  11. Yes, I too have killed every plant that put down roots within feet of me! LOVE the flowers!!

  12. darling! i have some too in my art studio and they bring me just as much joy as the real thing! :)

  13. so pretty. i tend to have that problem too. so far the only things i can keep alive are african violets and an aloe plant because they dont need to be watered too often haha
