It makes me itchy just looking at it! Here are two handmade paper stems of poison ivy leaves. They form part of my River Plants collection. I made the leaves from acid free drawing paper painted with acrylic paint and then again with a gloss medium to make them shiny! Poison ivy, though a strong irritant to humans, are an important native plant. Their berries are eaten by birds and small mammals, and larger animals graze on the leaves.

The leaves are mounted into a shallow wooden box that has been mounted onto a piece of unfinished pine board. The box is painted very dark blue and the board is stained lighter blue/green. The name and Latin name of the plant are mounted below the plant on a hand written plaque.
All of my paper flowers, leaves, and plants, are made from high quality materials. They have been sprayed with a UV resistant spray and are made to last! I will include care instructions with your purchase.
