DIY Cardboard Bonsai Tree

There are people who neither have green thumbs nor the patience to take care of plants. And I belong to that population. Although I grew up in a home surrounded by plants, I have not taken any interest in them. It was only when I moved out and had a house of my own that I suddenly developed an appreciation for them.

This DIY project is perfect for people who loves plants but couldn't take care of the real, living ones.
This DIY project is perfect for people who love plants but couldn’t take care of real, living ones.

However, as I have admitted earlier, I do not have what it takes to take care of a real, living plant. I looked for other options and came across this bonsai tree made out of cardboard. It was the perfect project for me as I love to work with my hands.

If you’re anything like me, you’ll like this DIY cardboard bonsai tree. You’ll end up with a plant that requires zero maintenance. You can also give this out to family and friends. I’m pretty sure they’ll appreciate the thought and effort put into the gift.

Inexpensive yet beautiful, this will make perfect gifts, too!
