The entryway "photo spot" for our party needed one more thing.....a cute cactus in a colorful pot!
I was driving back home from being out of town last weekend and was thinking about what else I needed to do for Granny's FIESTA. I saw these cute cactus piñatas on Pinterest and I knew what I wanted to do.
The cactus took no time at all and it was fun to put together. Granny took it home with her after the party to go with her Southwest decor.
Here's how to make your own cactus:
Using a poster tube as the base, I simply taped crumbled paper to it for arms.
I cut strips of crepe paper into lengths just long enough to wrap around the tube. Then, I simply cut fringe on one side.
Just keep gluing strips of paper making sure to overlap them a bit.
Using some colored tissue paper, I added a bloom to the top.
I stuffed the plastic pot with more paper and situated the cactus in the center. I added a little colored filler and it was party ready!
Easy and cute!
