Give a gift straight from the heart by creating a homemade rock cactus garden. This easy D.I.Y. project will look great in the garden or home and what’s more, this low maintenance garden will live on, as no watering is required!
- Paint brushes
- Terracotta pot and saucer
- House paint in green, yellow and white
Step 1: Paint your rocks
Paint each of your rocks with a coat of green paint. If your first coat isn’t bright enough, wait for your rocks to dry and paint a second coat of green.
Tip: Add your own flair by choosing your favourite colours to paint your cactus rocks.
Step 2: Decorate your rocks
Once the paint has dried, add details to your cactus by using white paint to draw on veins and yellow paint to create small flowers. Create a different design for each rock to give it a personal touch.
Step 3: Prep your pot
Place your pot in the saucer and fill it half way up with sand. The sand will support your cactus rocks.
Tip: A fun idea is to paint your pot so that it looks extra special.
Step 4: Arrange your cacti
- Once all your rocks are dry, simply arrange them in your pot to make them look like a cluster of cacti.
