How to make Color Block Cactus pots :

The first thing you need to do is wrap each of your cactus pots with a quality painter’s tape.  I decided to tape off the bottom inch of each of my pots to get them ready for the color.

I then taped a white piece of 8.5 x 11 copy paper around the cactus portion to keep the spray paint from covering the plant.

The result was a gorgeous inch of color on each cactus pot.

Lastly, I took my black permanent marker and added fun little details to an additional inch of the pot.  I drew a confetti pattern, crosses, polka dots and a scallop pattern.
