Paper Sculpture and Autumn Paper Craft DIYs

You have to love a paper artist with a sense of humor. After wrangling similar weeds in my garden all summer long, it's no wonder Natasha Frisch's paper twin appeals to me. I much prefer it to the real thing!

I was introduced to her paper sculpture via Upon a Fold [edit: site no longer available] and was inspired to look further. In this case, Natasha depicted the thorny side of life as part of an exhibition, but it's just the smallest sample of what she skillfully replicates with plain white paper. From 3D ladders to fences, window bars to venetian blinds, Natasha's paper clones are incredibly precise and quite frankly, astonishing.


Here's a little collection of autumn and Halloween tutorials that caught my eye around the interwebs recently...

  3. There's nothing better than autumn leaves to transform something into a workd of art! As for the weeds; that's an impressive feat. I quite like weeds, actually, I think they get a bad name for no real reason. Life flourishing even in amongst the cement. And a lovely highlighting of it with the paper weed. Super!

    1. Well, I agree with you to a point. :) Weeds are impressive - tough, strong, and able to survive the heat of a city street. But when they strangle other plants, am not a fan. Problem is, I'm even less a fan of herbicides, so the weeds always win in my yard. I'm glad you enjoyed Natasha's paper version.
