"Succulents and cacti are all the rage right now, so why not let the kids make some that require no maintenance? These would look adorable sitting on a bookshelf in a playroom, and they are so addicting to make!"

Instructions

How to Make Toothpick Cacti

  1. Begin by putting a layer of Mod Podge on your Styrofoam ball with a foam brush. Place some tissue paper on the ball and add more Mod Podge on top. Once it’s dry, you can add more layers of tissue paper and Mod Podge if desired.

  2. Paint your toothpicks. To make painting easier, you can stick the toothpicks in an extra Styrofoam ball while applying paint. When the paint is dry, cut or break the toothpicks in half.

  3. Stick your toothpicks in the dried Styrofoam ball.

  4. If desired, paint the terra cotta pots. When they are dry, place the toothpick cactuses in the pots and enjoy!
