Project Details

This cactus requires even less water than the real thing, and won't poke you!


  1. Cut out the shapes you’ll need:

    • 6 different sized cactus parts
    • Rectangle for flower

  2. Cut ½” slits in the cactus pieces to insert the other cactus parts.

  3. Accordion fold the pink rectangle back and forth to create a flower. Fold it in half the long way to create a fan shape, and secure with glue.

  4. Using a Black marker, draw on some short lines for thorns. Slide the additional cactus pieces into the pre-cut slits, and attach the flower with glue. Display your finished piece on a decorative pate or small pot.
