More and more people are collecting cacti and succulents at home. They’re easy to care for and they’re great as indoor plants. As much as we want to grow our own collection, we sadly cannot. We have small kids at home and they’re always playing. We don’t want to risk having them hurt because of the plants.

The best thing is, you have complete freedom over the final design!

So as not to feel cactus-deprived – if there’s such a thing – my husband resorted to giving me anything cactus-related. Now I have mugs, coasters, and paintings of cacti. My daughters made me some paper cactus last Mother’s Day. I loved them so much I’m sharing the project with you.
