Fun Fake Cacti Crafts

I have a problem: I have an uncontrollable love for cacti and succulents and I have two very young children. And let me tell you from experience – children and spiky plants do not mix well. Children don’t do what they are told (at least mine don’t) and cacti don’t stop being spiky (no matter how much you will them to). So I’ve been searching the internet for a fix and I think I might have found a very crafty one. You can make fake cacti that look beautiful and are so much fun to make. Below are the best cacti crafts I have found from around the web:

1// The Rock Cacti


These little rock cacti look adorable and if like me, you have little people running around then they are perfect – they can’t break and they are a great rainy day craft for you and your little ones to do together! Find the DIY here to make your own using a pot, some stones and paint!
