DIY: Rock Cacti Room Decor

Hey cupcakes! The colder weather is starting to set in, which means the leaves are almost gone and the weather is super gloomy... It is super important to have a little "green" in your life, so today I wanted to share with you all how to make your very own faux cactus! It is so easy, and such cute room decor.


What You Need:
-Some sort of terracotta pot (can be as small or large as you want!)
-Rocks
-Green and white paint
-Paintbrushes
-Dirt/smaller rocks
-Newspaper

What To Do:
1. To start making your faux cacti, you need to find some rocks that will fit inside your pot.

2. Lay out some newspaper on a flat surface, and start painting your rocks green (you can always vary the shades of green too to make it more realistic!).

3. Let the rocks dry.

4. Add details on the cacti in white paint. Let dry again.

5. To "plant" your cacti, fill the pot with small rocks/dirt/whatever you would like as the filler (you can also paint the pot if you want).

6. Stand up the rocks so that they look just like a cactus!

7. Display in your room and get rid of your cold weather blues. :)
