Decorative Stone Cactus - small terra cotta pot with super cute stone cactusMy parents tease me because I've always been such a lousy gardener. They say I've got a touch that could kill a cactus. This craft is in their honour: a cactus plant I can't possibly ruin because it's made of stone! You can make this cute little forever-plant with items you may already have around the home.


Total Time: 1 hour


  • a few oval stones
  • acrylic paint in green shades
  • acrylic paint in white
  • paint brush
  • fine tip paint brush
  • pebbles
  • moss
  • mini pom pom balls (optional)
  • hot glue gun (optional)
