I love that the cactus trend is still on the rise! I see cute cactus prints on pillows, backpacks, shirts, coffee mugs, and they are all so beautiful! Cacti come in many different sizes, shapes, colors even, and I am tempted each and every time I see a baby cactus at Lowe’s to pick it up and take it home with me! Simply put, cacti rock, but sometimes it’s easier to care for a cute cactus craft rather than a real cactus. Take a look at this fun quilled cactus craft that you can make. It is also a great craft for older elementary kids or preteens.
I love the look and simplicity of quilled paper crafts, like this quilled tree craft. The quilling process is made easier with quilling tools, but you could use a set of needle nose pliers and get the same or similar results, I would think! If you think you will like quilling, I would suggest getting the set because it makes is more fun and easy to manage!
I love this craft because you can just add the quilled paper to a template, change up the colors, use different textures of paper, and every cactus looks unique!
