Today is our third month of the ‘2015 Knock Out Knock Off challenge‘ and CB2! is the lucky inspiration store. Each month, four other bloggers and I pick items from our selected store and try to recreate them for a lesser cost. So far this year we’ve done Anthropologie and The Land of Nod. If you know me at all, you know I’m a plant lover and more specifically a succulent and cacti lover! So, today am here to share my Easy Cacti Wall Decor!

When I saw this CB2 *Cactus Coat rack, I simply fell in love. It’s made of wire and the cacti arms are 3d so as to hold scarves, coats and hats. However I made mine to simply replicate the overall look of CB2’s. Also, I had to go gold instead of the metal wire look they did.
I already owned all the materials needed for this project. So, I did a little happy dance at the ZERO price tag. However, if you were to buy these few craft items it would still cost quite a bit less than CB2’s original $80 price.
Pipe Cleaner / Small Wooden Dowels / Wooden Skewers / Glue Gun / Rust-Oleum Metallic GOLD Spray
Once all the pieces are glued together, I used my favorite Rust-Oleum Metallic GOLD Spray to give the entire cacti a uniform color.
Here is what it looked like before the spray paint. Once the cacti is all the same color, the different textures of the skewers and pipe cleaners seems to disappear.
I’ve added my Easy Cactus Wall Decor to my Guest Room + Office and I love how perfectly it fits in!
Through August, we will be showcasing an inspired project from a pre-decided home decor store. Be sure to check out the other amazing projects and the projects from last month!
