Make Mum a Rock Cactus
This easy DIY project will look great in the garden or home and what’s more, mum will love this low maintenance garden as no watering is required!
- Paint brushes
- Terracotta pot and saucer
- House paint in green, yellow and white
- Step 1: Paint your rocks
Paint each of your rocks with a coat of green paint. If your first coat isn’t bright enough, wait for your rocks to
dry and paint a second coat of green.
Tip: Add your own flair by choosing some of mum’s favourite colours to paint your cactus rocks.
- Step 2: Decorate your rocks
Once the paint has dried, add details to your cactus by using white paint to draw on veins and yellow paint to
create small flowers. Create a different design for each rock to give it a personal touch that mum will love.
- Step 3: Prep your pot
Place your pot in the saucer and fill it half way up with sand. The sand will support your cactus rocks.
Tip: A fun idea is to paint your pot so that it looks extra special for mum.
- Step 4: Arrange your cacti
Once all your rocks are dry, simply arrange them in your pot to make them look like a cluster of cacti.
