 A paper stinging nettle! Nettle is a great plant, even though it stings. I pick it in the spring to drink as tea all winter. You can also eat the leaves like spinach! I had to make this much shorter than the real plant to fit in the frame! This piece forms part of my River Plants collection. I made the leaves from acid free drawing paper painted with acrylic paint.

The plant is 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.
