How cute are these little potted cactus rocks? And not just cute but 100% maintenance-free…
Do you remember entrepreneurship day back in the third grade? Each third-grader had to create items to sell to students and faculty on market day. One classmate of mine sold pet rocks. I remember thinking the idea was so neat!
This project is just a little different. These are hand-painted cactus rocks. They’re a fun and very attractive addition to your indoor plant decor!
Think of all the great combinations you can achieve. You can add accent to your indoor plant arrangements, devising arrangements that brim with texture and visual appeal.
These cactus rocks are also absolutely perfect for those of us who don’t have the proverbial ‘green thumb’, or have a habit of forgetting to water our indoor plants. These ‘plants’ don’t need water or even sunlight to live. ;)
So if you’re looking to add more green decorations at home, these cactus rocks would be great since you can put them even in areas that don’t get natural light!
It’s an easy, fun, and inexpensive project to do. You can simply source for rocks that are shaped like cacti around your area, and you can use any other container that will serve as the pot. Tubs and bowls are some of the alternatives used by creative people who’ve done the project. :)
And if you have artsy-crafty kids at home, they will surely enjoy helping you with this project. ;)
