Easy Cactus Art
This Easy Cactus Art project is super quick and easy to make.
Driving around Arizona this summer, on our way to the Grand Canyon, I saw hundreds, maybe even thousands of cacti. They are so amazing– they manage to grow and even thrive in harsh conditions that many plants couldn’t exist it. Maybe it’s their resilience that makes me such a fan of cacti.
Back in rainy Washington, I got the idea to make some cactus art from my favorite craft store, Ben Franklin Crafts and Frames in Redmond, Washington. If you live in the Seattle area or the Eastside, click on the Ben Franklin box on my sidebar for a coupon for $5 off your next $20 purchase!
Supplies: DecoArt Acrylic Paint in Cotton Candy, a 4 x 6 inch wood block, glue, a paper trimmer or ruler and scissors, Scrapbook Paper (this is Heart Day by Crate Paper) and cactus stickers (these are by Forever in Time).
1. Paint the block pink.
2. Cut a piece of the paper to 4″ x 6″
3. Glue it on the block.
4. Add a few cactus stickers.
If you’re a cactus-y, succulent-y kind of person like me, you might be into this project as well:
I love the cactus trend! This is such a simple and clever way of integrating cactus art into the home. Just love it!
