Large Scale Banana Leaf Prints | DIY

Leaf prints have been a favorite of mine recently! I love the organic shape, texture and color. Today, I'm going to share how make your own large scale leaf prints!

I was inspired by this post by the talented Brittni of Paper & Stitch!

My original plan was to remove the leaves and make a composition, but I really loved the way the leaves interacted while still attached, so I didn't remove the leaves.

You can see the plant (purchased from Home Depot) is currently in my dining room!

While David held the plant sideways (the bottom was in a trash bag to hold the dirt) on our white dining table (for a backdrop), I took photos from above. Having some of the leaves raised allowed light to pass through - I love the variation in the tones.

This is the image that I used. I did adjust the color and contrast later for a more stylized look.

Next, in Photoshop, I divided the image into two photos.

To finish, I used SnapBox to print and frame - I selected two fine art paper with a white frame sized at 20x30. At $41.99 per framed print, it's very reasonably priced - a frame alone at a local store would be more than that. The quality is great too!! The turn around time was super fast, I ordered on Monday and my prints were delivered on Friday!

They ended up being the exact width of my desk. I love the large scale!

We're moving in less than a week, and I'm selling a good bit, but these are definitely coming with me! I feel like they are so versatile and can go anywhere! p.s. if you're close to knoxville, tn, email sarahmdorseydesigns{@} for more info on my furniture sale this weekend.

Thanks so much to SnapBox for providing me with the prints, all ideas are 100% my own. I only share products that I love!
