Charming Paper Cacti to Hold in the Palm of your Hand

Kim Sielbeck

If you follow me on Pinterest, you’ve probably noticed that I pin a lot of paper flower DIYs. I’m attracted to their bright colors and the sheer novelty of recreating living things out of inanimate objects. Illustrator Kim Sielbeck does just this with her charming series of tiny cacti. Using papier-mache, cardboard, polymer clay, paper, styrofoam, and clay pots, she’s constructed living-ish sculptures you can hold in the palm of your hand. All I can say is: do want!

Kim will be selling these small plants at the NYC MoCCA festival on April 2 and April 3.

Kim’s tiny plants are inspired by a spectacular window display she created at Desert Island in Brooklyn:
