Hello everyone in France and Navarre (and elsewhere, I love you all!) I hope that you’re well and that the cold hasn’t frozen your fingers, which you’ll need for this DIY. Since my window for the Lemonade Shop went well, I thought that you might like a tutorial to make your own little cacti, for you and your loved ones this Christmas. It’s the perfect gift for those who lack a green thumb and those who can’t keep a real cactus alive for more than a couple weeks (hey, it happens to the best of us, don’t judge). So here it is, how to make paper cacti in every color and size! Hugs and kisses, Charlotte.
For this DIY you’ll need:
Repeat for the seven other parts! Pay close attention and turn off the tv if it was on, we’re going to put the cactus together. If you look, you’ll see that there’s a side that has four tabs, and one that has three. Be sure to start with the side that has four tabs! Fold them inwards.
Glue your first needle on the edge of the cactus and continue all over the rest of the cactus! You can make the flower using this DIY. Put it together and glue it on top of the cactus for the final touch! And ta-da!
