Cactus seem to be so popular these days. Social media is flooded with great photos and clever ideas on how to decorate with them. Of course I had to contribute, so I decided to make some colorful cactus gifts for my kid’s teachers this past Christmas.
I started with purchasing some various clay pots from my local Goodwill. I had a few cans of spray-paint with just enough squirts left to not have to purchase any for this project.
- 4 cactus
- tubes of glitter
- cactus soil
- small ornaments
- aquarium rocks
After spray-painting the pots, I used a paintbrush and applied Elmers glue around the rims then added the glitter. I really wanted these to be festive enough for the holidays but not so traditional that they couldn’t enjoy them all year around.
I used a metal hanger that I already had and used my wire cutters to snip off pieces to make little hooks for the ornaments to hang on.
It is so rewarding to give something so unique and colorful as a gift, anyone can buy candy right? Have you done anything special for your kid’s teachers for Christmas? I would love to hear about it!!
