  • Terracotta container (Amazon sells adorably adorable white ones at this link: I wished I had noticed them sooner)
  • tape
  • swim noodle (one big one small) Here is the link to get some from
  • combined with a brush
  • Sharpie
  • Green interior paint in both a dark and light shade. Glidden samples from Home Depot were used. I purchased the hues known as Equestrain Green (a dark green) and Healing Plant (a light green) from Behir.

How may PVC pipe be used to create a palm tree?

Thread them onto the PVC pipe one at a time, working your way down. Put some pressure on the first one at the bottom, just above the hardened cement, then use hot glue to attach it to the PVC pipe. Continue until you reach the top of the PVC pipe with the remaining bags, squishing them as you go to simulate the raised bark of palm tree trunks.

How are miniature succulents made?

Ever pondered succulent propagation? It is quite simple to do using succulent leaves, cuttings, or my favorite method, the tiny baby offshoots that develop from the larger plant. Simply remove the infant from the ground or the plant, depending on where it is developing. This type of foraging shouldn’t bother anyone, but if you’re concerned, you could always do it after dark 😉 You may do this outside in your area.

Here’s what you should do when your collection is prepared to go:

1) Allow your cuttings, leaves, and/or offshoots to dry for a few days in the open air.

3) Use your finger to make a small hole in the ground.

4) Insert your succulent.

5) Position them in a bright area of your house.

You can see that I even utilized a ceramic tea strainer, which has the ideal form and drainage holes, as a planter for one.

6) Take care not to overwater the plants, especially in the beginning. Once per week, give them a thorough soak.

7) You have some wins and some losses, but succulents are tough plants, so you should succeed in watching your young ones grow and even sprout additional offspring.

They make the ideal present, especially if you customize the pot—as I did with this one—by painting it with blackboard paint and giving it out with some chalk. Fun!

How may cacti be made into crafts?

Step 2: Cut out the pieces of your cardboard cactus. You need two pieces of cardboard to make the homemade saguaro cactus. You may include many paddles in the craft made from the prickly pear cactus. Your creativity and the quantity of cardboard you have on hand will determine the shape, size, and number of paddles for your cactus craft.

Step 3Slit the saguaro cactus pieces at the top and bottom. With the slits connecting them, the cardboard cactus will fit together like a jigsaw. This is what gives your own 3D cactus dimension.

Step 4: Using a paler shade of green paint, add painted accents that mimic cactus spikes. This pattern might be totally arbitrary. Use toothpick tips as spikes for the homemade prickly pear cactus. Insert the toothpick between the cardboard cactus paddle pieces using a small amount of adhesive.

On top, pompoms or flowers provide lovely accents. We all know that pompoms make everything better. With hot glue, add.

Step 5: Use glue to secure the cardboard cactus in a pot with foam at the bottom. When the DIY cactus is complete, insert the parts inside the pot and secure them with hot glue to the foam. The adhesive and foam ensure that the cactus craft you have spent so much time making stands straight and does not fall over. Add more pompoms or rocks to the foam to cover it.

Build your cardboard cactus and display in Step 6. Better yet, this cactus creation doesn’t require any watering and won’t perish even if you neglect to water it. Since you are aware that it is cardboard, I sincerely hope that you do.

Which creative cardboard cactus design do you prefer? Team prickly pear or the saguaro? Since choosing is difficult, you might as well choose both.

How can you use a pool noodle to create a cactus Christmas tree?

Pool noodles are excellent for many crafts, and you can combine several to create larger cacti. I produced this one using just one noodle.

1. Roughly cut the noodle from the centre (since it’s a tree, you don’t need to be too precise).

2. Separate the remaining half of the noodle into two pieces as well. If you want a more organic look, one part can be a little bit longer than the other.
