Traditionally, cacti are either green or, if you’re unlucky with keeping your plants alive, brown. But being a #creativeweirdo means that you don’t see things in traditional ways, and when you have a ceramic cactus on your hands, you think why not paint it pink?
Check out nurseries for garden statues for other ideas for this DIY! Also, Target has a good selection of smaller ceramic sculptures in their craft section!
- Set up a painting area and paint your ceramic cactus a bright new color! Use multiple coats if necessary.
- Once your base paint is dry, add on any patterns or other details with the paint!
- To accent with flowers, take the flower heads off of the stems. A pro trick is to invert the green plastic base of the flower to make it fit perfectly atop the cactus.
- Hot glue the flowers into place, and let dry. Place your cactus in your home or garden and enjoy! No need to water or worry about sunshine!
