Start by embracing a fun bold color and paint your cactus. Mine took two coats of paint for even coverage.
Once your cactus is dried, it’s time to add a little embellishment to your cactus pot! I used a black permanent marker and added fun doodles all around it.
Allow plenty of time for your sand to dry. It should be hard to the touch. I went ahead and did three layers of mod podge/sand. You can stop at just one layer, but you get a much thicker and consistent look with a few more layers.
Next, I painted a light peach rim on my cactus pot.
Lastly, sort out mini pom poms in the colors that match your painted cactus. I went with pinks, raspberry colors and peach pom poms.
Using a hot glue gun, adhere your mini pom poms to your cactus to mimic the cactus spikes.
I just love the whimsy and color this fun craft project brings to my space!
And I can never have too many plants in my house, but this one is even better because I don’t have to water him! HA.
And don’t forget to pin this fun project for later!
