Making Cactus Home Decor:
Start by painting the paper mache cactus. You will need to paint the tops green and the pot white. I love the color shift paint under the glitterific paint but any green will work here.
Allow that to dry then come back with three different colors of the glitterific paint and add one to each cactus. This paint is the ultimate in glitter paint. It has all different sizes of glitter all in one bottle. One thick application and you have all of the glitter you could ever want! Allow each DIY cactus to dry completely before continuing.
Then it is time to add the twine to the pot. If you have ever wrapped anything in twine, you know that it can be tedious. I have an easy method for you today that just might have you wrapping all the things! I am using the new Mod Podge Ultra for the task. Just shake the bottle well and pour a little into a disposable cup. Add a length of twine to the Mod Podge and push in well with a craft stick to soak.
Then start pulling the twine out of the Mod Podge and wrapping around your pot. I recommend leaving the twine attached to the roll at the other end so you can keep pulling off lengths and wetting them as you go along. Then just twirl your cactus around to make the twine wrap around the pot.
Continue until the entire pot is covered and set aside to dry. I recommend setting on top of a strip of wax paper so the pot does not stick to anything. Allow to dry overnight then your cute cactus is ready for display anywhere around your home!
A DIY cactus is even easier with these techniques! Just think, some cactus room decor is just minutes away and you get that gorgeous glitter finish!
You can change up the colors on this project or make yours exactly like mine. I do know that you are sure to love adding a cute cactus to any room in your home.
