This cute cactus craft is just what your room needs


If you don't have a green thumb, you are all too familiar with the struggle of keeping plants, flowers and yes, even cacti, alive. But they're just *so* pretty. Fortunately, we've found the perfect solution: paper versions of your favorite plants. These are the one kind of greenery you definitely don't have to worry about killing. And they look just as cute in your room!

You'll need:

- Green cardstock
- Glue stick
- Pencil
- Scissors
- White paint pen or Sharpie
- Pink tissue paper
- Cacti templates 


1. Fold three sheets of cardstock in half, lengthwise. Glue one half of each sheet to the next, making a 3D card.

2. Lay the card flat and place one of the templates in the center. Trace with your pencil.

3. Cut out your cactus.

4. Add "needles" to the cactus using a white paint pen or Sharpie.

5. For flowers, you can scrunch up tiny pieces of pink tissue paper and glue to the top of your cactus.

6. Put it a pot, can, bowl or any other holder you'd like.
