Foliage Pleat Garland

Folding a pleated garland out of foliage

Cut the Aspidistra leaf into similar width strips. Begin to fold in an accordion zigzag pattern of equal width in alternating opposite directions as you would make a fan. Thread a length of Bullion wire through the leaf. Open up the folds. Continue adding strips until you have a long garland.

Every week I add a new design with related tutorials. Be sure to subscribe to receive an email notification with design inspiration.

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
