DIY framed monstera leaf (5 minute Ikea hack)

DIY framed monstera leaf

Honestly the quickest and easiest DIY I’ve ever done. All made and ready in 5 minutes before meeting up with my friend Louis (to continue making my wedding jumpsuit!!)

A few weeks ago I got a real Monstera leaf at a party and brought it home. I just put it in a frame hoping it would dry up and stay nice. Obviously that didn’t work. Plants just don’t work like that.

As you know we’re currently renovating the apartment we’re in (almost done can’t wait to show you!!!) so we swung by ikea and what do I see? The giant plastic monstera leaf !! So here’s how to turn into a DIY framed monstera leaf!

With your pliers cut the end of the stem (and pull hard on it to rip our the inside). You’ll be left with the metal wire that you can cut with your pliers.

Trace the size of the frame onto your cardboard and cut it out.
