Make Miniature Palm Trees in Several Styles for Scale and Model Scenes.

You can make these miniature palm trees easily in many styles and scales for all kinds of scale scenes, gaming terrains, Christmas nativities, dollhouse interiors or exteriors, even as cake decorations. The palm 'trunks' are made by wrapping wire stems with dry brushed kraft paper. The trees can be made from pre-wired fabric plant leaves available from a craft store or florist, or you can make the basic leaves from paper with a wire in the center.

Before you start making a particular type of palm, study the shape of its fronds, as well as how the fronds come off the trunk, and the relative size of the fronds. For most scale miniatures, generic palm fronds should be about the size of a doorway or the height of a person in the same scale. This will create palms that appear to be in scale outdoors. Indoor palms only have trunks in conservatories. Household palm trees usually appear to spring from a tip at ground level in a pot and can be made following the same instructions, just without the trunk.

Materials List for Making Easy Model Palm Trees In Any Scale

The Spruce / Lesley Shepherd

To Make Model Palm Trees in Any Scale You Will Need:

  • Kraft Paper for the palm trunk. A brown paper bag or used sheets of parcel wrap are fine. Use thinner paper for smaller scales.
  • Acrylic Paints in raw umber and black, to dry brush the kraft paper to give a bark effect, in dark green, mid green, and yellow-green to create palm fronds from paper instead of fabric leaves.
  • Stiff Paint Brush for dry brushing the trunk paper, or painting the fronds.
  • Textured Fabric Leaves in the correct color and slightly larger than you need for your palm fronds. Each palm tree will need five to seven leaves. You can substitute fabric or paper wrapped florist's wire and printer paper (tissue paper for smaller scales) if you wish.
  • PVA (White) Glue
  • Florist's Tape You can also use masking tape, the color isn't important as it will be covered.
  • Wire Cutters
  • Sharp Scissors

Choosing Fabric Plant Leaves Suitable for Making Model Palm Trees

The Spruce / Lesley Shepherd

If you want to make palm trees from fabric plant leaves, try to find a leaf with a stem long enough to form a trunk for the size of palm tree you want to make. Choose leaves which are dark green colored and have veins that curve out from the center of the leaf if possible. Try to find leaves which are paler underneath. We used magnolia style leaves here for palms suitable for a dolls house or small Christmas nativity scene. These leaves were the correct color with good leaf veins and long wire stems.

Don't worry if the leaves are large; you can easily cut them down to size. You can also usually easily remove any plastic veins beneath the leaves if necessary. Check the cluster of leaves you find, to make sure all the leaves in the group are the same. In the group of magnolia leaves, We purchased at the craft store, some are dark green, and some are yellow-green. This works fine, as long as you remember to use only one kind of leaf in each palm tree. Leaves with natural wavy texture look very realistic for several miniature palms. If you want your palm to have dead fronds as well as living ones, then try to find similar leaves in light brown or yellowed colors. If necessary, you can make the dead fronds from paper and combine them with the fabric fronds.

Remove Any Veins From the Fabric Leaves

The Spruce / Lesley Shepherd

If your fabric leaf has plastic veins on the underside, peel them off the leaf before you cut it into the shape of palm fronds. The plastic veins will get in the way of your cuts for the frond. On most fabric leaves the veins will peel away from the edge back to the wire center of the leaf, where you can trim them away from the center vein.

Cut Palm Frond Shapes From Fabric Leaves

The Spruce / Lesley Shepherd

Decide what shape and length you need for the type of model palm tree you want to create. The easiest palms are date palms and phoenix palms, which have oblong leaves, which are slightly pointed at the tips. The length of the frond should be roughly equal to the height of either a doorway or a person in the scale you are working in, although they can be larger or smaller and still look in scale. For this set of instructions, we cut the rough oval shapes close to five inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide before they were trimmed.

Cut your rough oval shape starting from the tip of your leaf to keep the stem of the leaf as long as possible for the palm trunk.

To see a clearer example of the shape of the leaf, see the step on for cutting palm frond shapes from paper.

Remove Excess Fabric From the End of the Miniature Palm Frond

The Spruce / Lesley Shepherd

When you have cut out your basic palm frond shape, peel any excess leaf (from the main leaf shape you started with) off the wire below the base of your newly cut palm frond, making sure the frond section is not peeled from the wire. Trim any excess fabric off the wire as shown in the photo.

Cut Basic Palm Frond Shapes From Paper

The Spruce / Lesley Shepherd

To make palm fronds from paper instead of fabric plant leaves, cut roughly oval shapes with a slight point on one end as shown in the photo. Double the sheet of paper to make two identical cuts for each leaf. You will need one paper leaf for the top, and one for the bottom of the leaf, with a length of fabric or paper, covered wire glued in the center (see the next step).

Paint and Texture the Paper Palm Fronds

The Spruce / Lesley Shepherd

To finish miniature palm fronds made from paper, first coat one side of an oval shape with glue, then center a piece of florists wire along the length of the oval, leaving 1/4 to 1/2 inch free at the point of the oval. Cover the wire with the second piece of paper to sandwich the wire between the upper and lower layers of the palm frond.

When the glue has dried, and the wire is secured between the two layers, paint the upper and lower sides of the leaf with yellow-green paint. Allow the paint to dry.

Dry brush a layer of darker green paint over the frond as shown in the photo (not all of the frond has been painted) making 'S' shaped curves in the paint that run out from the wire in the center of the leaf. This will create the leaflet veins. Allow some of the yellow layer of paint to show through. Dry brush the underside of the leaf with mid-green paint the same way, trying to line up the veins in the same direction. Set the basic frond shape aside to dry. When dry, carry on making the frond as in the instructions for the fabric fronds. You may need to touch up cut edges of the paper frond with a bit of darker green paint if the paper underlayer shows through after you cut it.

Cut the Basic Palm Frond Into A Fringe

The Spruce / Lesley Shepherd

To shape the miniature palm frond for your model palm, cut it into a basic fine fringe, from the outside edge into the wire center. Try to cut along the vein lines in the leaf, or the s-shaped lines you painted on your basic paper frond. Keep the width of the cuts as equal as possible, and angle them slightly as you go around the end to cut those fringes back towards the wire as well. See the photo for an example

Add Points to the Ends of the Leaves on the Model Palm Frond

The Spruce / Lesley Shepherd

Use sharp scissors to trim each of the fringed sections on your miniature palm frond to a point. The points do not all need to be the same lengths or size; all leaves vary slightly in shape naturally. Just try to keep the rough pointed oval shape of the frond close to the shape you first cut.

Make at least five to seven fronds for every miniature palm tree. For fuller palms, make more fronds.

Assemble the Miniature Palm Fronds Into a Palm Tree

The Spruce / Lesley Shepherd

When you have at least five to seven fronds for your model palm tree, gather the fronds together so that the bases of all the fronds are lined up together. Don't worry about some stems being shorter than others. If you want your palm to be thicker just below the fronds (as if it has been trimmed wider) cut some of the stems to about 1/3 to half the length of the frond, leaving enough long stems to make a full-length trunk in an appropriate thickness.

When you have all the fronds lined up, gather them together at the base of the fringed leaves, with a piece of florists tape or masking tape as shown.

Tape the Palm Tree Trunk Together

The Spruce / Lesley Shepherd

Use florist's tape or masking tape to wrap the wires on the palm fronds all the way to the base to form a trunk as shown. If you wish, you can add extra wrappings to the upper section of the trunk to thicken it. If you use brown florist's tape, you may find your palm tree is finished enough for your purposes after this tape wrap. You can create a more realistic trunk using prepared kraft paper strips for a final wrap for the tree.

Check that your trunk is the correct length for your purposes and trim all the wires, leaving one wire one inch or so longer if you want to secure the palm in a base made from a circle of wood, or anchor it into an existing terrain. You could also trim all the wires the same length and create a small plaster or polymer clay base to anchor your palm tree into position for the scene.

Prepare Kraft Paper Strip for the Palm Tree Trunk Fibers

The Spruce / Lesley Shepherd

To make the wrapping for the palm tree trunk, dry brush a long section of kraft (brown) paper with dark brown or raw umber acrylic paint, brushed over with black paint. Matt paint is more effective than gloss paint. You do not need to coat the kraft paper entirely.

To dry brush paper, load your brush with paint, then tap the brush on a rag or paper towel to dry off the ends of the brush. Drag the brush over the paper covering it with light lines of paint, instead of the regular solid coating.

When the kraft paper is dry, use your fingers to tear a narrow strip (less than 1/2 inch, narrower for smaller palms) along the long edge of the kraft paper in the direction you made your brush lines. Try to tear the paper in a slight zig-zag, as this will mimic the small triangular scars on a palm where old branches have fallen off or been cut away. You may need several strips of torn paper to cover the trunk of one scale miniature palm depending on its height and trunk thickness.

Wrap the Trunk of the Miniature Palm Tree

The Spruce / Lesley Shepherd

Take your strip of prepared kraft paper and run a thin line of glue along one unpainted inner edge, this will be the bottom inside edge. Begin to wrap around the top of the trunk just under the join of the fronds to the trunk. Make sure you cover all the tape from previous steps. Wrap the top section of the palm several times to create a fairly thick top, gluing the layers together as you go, but avoid having glue show between the edges of the paper.

When your trunk is the correct thickness, continue wrapping the trunk towards the base of the palm, leaving 1/8 to 1/4 inch of space between the lines of wrapping. Leave the glue to dry.

To make the trunk more realistic, use tweezers or a toothpick to tease some of the zig-zag sections free of the trunk. These will give the semblance of old frond bases to the palm.

Shape the Fronds of the Model Palm Tree

The Spruce / Lesley Shepherd

To shape the fronds of the model palm tree into the proper crown shape, consult the photos of the palms you are trying to reproduce. Some palms have fronds that stand more erect than other varieties. Gently curve the wire on the back of the leaves over your hand to curve each frond into shape. If you need to store the palm between uses, you can bend the fronds back up into a tight group for storage. As the fronds are taped, but not glued together, you can also gently adjust the position of fronds in the group if necessary.

If you want curved palm trees, remember that palms only curve in one direction, they make C curves, but not double S bends with their trunks. Palms also look more realistic if planted in groups, rather than placed singly in a scene.

Exotic Paper Plant Features

Plants growing in warm southern countries are different from the flora of our climate. Exotic trees amaze with their unusualness, and lovers of making various paper crafts very often prefer to create palm trees from paper.

The completed work looks very impressive, attracting the attention of others. For this reason, these crafts are always used to decorate interiors, holidays.

Paper and cardboard craft examples

There are many options for making exotic crafts. A palm tree can be made from corrugated paper, colored cardboard or colored paper. The work can be done in the technique of origami, modular origami, in the form of an appliqué or a three-dimensional design.

How to make a palm tree

To understand how to make a palm tree out of paper, you must first familiarize yourself with the step-by-step assembly scheme, watch the video. Since the palm tree is an unusual tree, you should especially pay attention to how to make palm leaves from paper, and the plant stem itself.

Required materials and tools

All necessary materials must be prepared for work:

  • colored paper (or corrugated) in two shades of green and brown;
  • wire - for the barrel;
  • base for placing a palm tree - a piece of foam, plasticine, twisted strips of colored paper (quilling), a container with sand;
  • scissors;
  • plain pencil.

Depending on the type of craft chosen, the materials may vary, for example, when making an appliqué, you can add some action to the created picture - an island, a sea, a bird (etc), and then you will need more colored sheets of paper, paints or felt-tip pens . Also, for the design of the panel, it will be a plus if the work is placed in a frame. Then a hand-made craft will surely please everyone with its originality.

Step-by-step assembly of a three-dimensional palm tree with step-by-step photos

Large-sized three-dimensional palm tree, perfect for decorating covered terraces, verandas, winter gardens, while the cost of making crafts will be minimal.

Even children can handle the work, assembly should be done in stages:

  1. cardboard) from paper towels.
  2. Brown paper is torn by hand arbitrarily, giving irregularities to the blanks, of any size. Then the resulting sheets should be crumpled in the hands - for greater realism.
  3. The trunk is wrapped, starting from the bottom, overlapping in a spiral with brown blanks.
  4. The paper is fixed with elastic bands or threads at intervals of 6-8 cm.
  5. The edges of the brown paper are folded to the sides, giving a similarity to the irregularities of the bark of a palm tree trunk.
  6. From colored green paper, preferably two shades (for greater realism), cut out elongated blanks for leaves 8-10 pcs. Fold in half and make a "fringe" at an angle to the outer end of the sheet.
  7. Fold paper palm leaves 4 pieces. and fastened at the base with a stapler. The outer tips should look in different directions.
  8. The collected leaves are fixed on the top of the trunk with glue, if towel sleeves are used, then the leaves are planted on the glue, then crumpled brown paper (in the form of a ball) is inserted on top. If necessary, use threads or braid.

The finished palm tree is installed on a pedestal, in a pot, flowerpot, planter, where sand, decorative pebbles, shells are poured.

Crafts can be made from corrugated paper for this:

  • brown paper is cut into thin strips (2-2.5 cm), cutting off the “fringe” on one side;
  • 8-12 pieces of elongated leaves are cut out of green paper, cutting them on each side, giving the shape of a palm leaf, the size may be different;
  • brown strips are wound (at an angle) on the blank for the barrel (tube, wire, strong wire, stick), fixed with glue;
  • uncut brown paper elements are folded back, giving randomness;
  • The leaves are fastened with thread, wire and glue to the top of the trunk and straightened out.

Palm tree can be installed in a piece of Styrofoam (painted brown), a container with sand or pebbles.

The smallest leaves are fixed closer to the center of the palm trunk, then the middle ones are placed, and the largest ones are glued last.

Simple Origami for Beginners

There are many simple patterns for beginners in the origami technique, even children will cope with the work, and will be proud of themselves and crafts.

The origami palm is assembled in stages:

  • a square (15x15 cm or 20x20 cm) of green paper is folded in the middle - horizontally, vertically (turning), then twice diagonally;
  • after each fold (4 times in total) the fold is ironed and the sheet is flattened;
  • fold the square along the folds into the basic shape - a double square;
  • in the upper part of the workpiece, the sides are folded towards the center, then opened;
  • the first layer of the square is opened to the sides (up and down), an elongated rhombus is obtained;
  • fold the rhombus in half and turn the workpiece over;
  • the same steps are repeated on the other side;
  • open carefully and fold the two sides to make them flat;
  • four adjacent sheets were obtained;
  • take the middle of the foliage and bend it into the form of palm branches bent down;
  • sharp tips are also slightly tucked under.

The crown is ready, then an unusual palm trunk is assembled:

  • a gray, orange or brown sheet of paper in the form of a square of the same shape, folded twice in half upwards, then again - you get a narrow blank;
  • open it and fold the narrow sides towards the middle at the center of the fold;
  • open the blank;
  • on the front side, the workpiece is bent in a zigzag manner - the width of the folds is 5-8 mm, the step is 2-3 cm;
  • after that, the workpiece is bent in the center (along the fold line) and along the side lines - a finished stable trunk is obtained.

Palm branches are fixed on the trunk with glue, double-sided tape. The craft is ready.

Applications for children

For the smallest creators, the following simple and very beautiful application scheme will be possible: Circles (5 pieces) 2.5-3 cm in size are cut out of brown paper, and they are cut in half - these are the parts for assembling the trunk. From shades of green paper, circles are cut out in size 10 cm - 1 pc., 7.5 cm - 1 pc., And 5 cm - 2 pcs. Each of them is cut in the middle.

  • But the base of colored cardboard in the middle is laid out with brown semicircles overlapping (lower to upper) in the form of a curved trunk. Then fixed with glue.
  • Cut off the “fringe” on the round side of green blanks and give it randomness.
  • Two large blanks of leaves are glued to the trunk by the middle, the clipped edges are not touched with glue. Next, on the base of the large ones, I fix the blanks of the middle circle - the same way.
  • The first small piece of cut 5 cm is also glued on the middle leaves, and the second on the largest leaves, giving the palm a volume and a rounded shape.
  • If desired, you can add an island of yellow paper, a bird, a sun.

    Cutting templates

    A large assortment of templates and stencils makes it easy and quick to choose your favorite model to make your own craft. To do this, it is printed out for cutting.

    Ideas for using paper palms

    Since handicrafts made by yourself usually look very beautiful, are associated with rest (summer) and vacation, they are often used in interior design. A palm tree can be placed on a wall, window, window sill, it can be used to decorate furniture.

    If you make crafts from wafer paper, you can decorate a birthday cake, a festive dinner table with it.

    Small paper palm tree, ideal for decorating homemade cards, greeting posters. Photo frames decorated with paper palm trees look original, especially if you insert a photo taken on vacation (at sea) into the frame.

    Volumetric and large palm trees will be a great addition to the themed interior design in rooms where children's parties, games, parties for young people and adults, or for a photo session take place.

    Palm tree made of cardboard and paper is quite affordable to manufacture, has many different assembly methods. The finished craft will always look spectacular and original, reminding you of the warm summer, the sea and pleasant experiences.

    Do-it-yourself paper palm tree: master class with photo

    From ordinary colored paper and glue, which are in every home, you can make many wonderful crafts that will delight you and your children. For example, a paper palm tree is a great option for beginners who want to do their own work.

    Making a paper palm tree is fun enough to keep little kids interested. In addition, it perfectly develops imagination and fine motor skills. A voluminous origami-style palm tree or a palm tree made from pieces of wire and corrugated paper will be a wonderful interior decoration. We have created a detailed master class with photo and video materials, thanks to which you can easily cope with this task.

    We make a voluminous palm tree out of paper with our own hands in MK

    To make a paper palm tree we need:

    • Corrugated green paper;
    • Brown plain colored paper;
    • scissors;
    • fine wire approx. 25 cm;
    • glue.

    First, over to make a trunk for our palm tree. To do this, we take a wire of a little corrugated paper and plain brown paper.

    1) We wrap the wire with a piece of corrugated paper, this is necessary so that the brown stripes do not slip off when we glue them to the wire. Yes, and the shape of the trunk will be more durable.

    2) Cut brown paper into strips of about 2-3 cm. Fold each such strip 6 times and create a fringe out of them. To do this, we make a neat incision from any edge.

    3) Now glue the brown fringe to the frame of the palm tree. We apply glue to the edge of the strip and wrap it tightly around the frame so that the base is not visible. We do this 3 times to make the palm tree more voluminous.

    Leaves.

    In order to create foliage for our palm tree, cut the corrugated paper into strips of 1 cm and a length of about 6. Fold in half and cut out the leaves. We give each leaf an elongated shape, similar to a palm leaf. Leaves need to be made and 2 sizes - small ones will go to the top of the palm tree, and large ones will serve as the main part of the crown.

    Now it remains only to assemble the finished palm tree from the parts that we made. To do this - Glue leaves to the top of the finished trunk - first small, then large.

    At the end We fix the workpiece on the stand. And the handmade palm tree is ready. You can decorate the base with small colored pebbles or sand to create a finished look.

    Origami Palm Tree:

    A voluminous origami-made palm tree from modules will also look original. For this you will need:

    • 14 sheets of heavy green paper,
    • 16 sheets of yellow paper,
    • Adhesive.
    • stationery knife or scissors

    To create a palm tree using this technique, we first need to collect the required number of modules. It will take 210 green modules and 243 yellow ones. To make a module, use the diagram below.

    After assembling the required number of modules, we begin to create our palm tree in stages.

    Palm tree base:

    1) First, we need to make our palm tree an island on which it will stand. To do this, we make the first and second rows of each of the 9 green modules and turn them inside out.

    2) On each corner of the module of the second row we put on one module of the third. In total, 18 green modules will be needed.

    3) We collect the fourth row by analogy with the third.

    4) And in the fifth row, you will need to attach 36 modules already.

    Sandy beach:

    1) Starting from the 6th row, we turn on the yellow modules.

    2) It is necessary to form the 6th and 7th row, each should consist of 36 yellow modules.

    Trunk:

    1) From the 8th row, a palm tree trunk begins to appear.

    2) Distribute 18 yellow modules evenly. We insert them into the gaps between the modules of the first and second row, imitating sand.

    3) In the 9th row we distribute 8 yellow modules and repeat this action 19 rows in a row.

    Palm leaves:

    1) Now we need to make the branches of our palm tree. In total, we need 6 identical leaves for this. To assemble one sheet, you will need green modules - the first 2 rows should consist of 6 green modules each.
