Crazy Cacti

I love a nice cactus plant, but for some reason I have a hard time keeping them alive. Maybe I water them too much or maybe they don’t get enough sun, but in any case, I’m thinking that one of these great projects would be a better idea for someone like me who is cacti-challenged.

Gothicmisty was in need of a pincushion, and came up with the great idea to make it a cactus. This poor fellow looks like he’s a little startled to be stuck with all those pins.

Here’s another pincushion, this one a mini cactus by Opalgryphon.  I love the sweet little bloom.
Speaking of blooms, how cute are these little plants by fluffybunnies? Their spines are soft, not prickly, and they have the sweetest little smiles.
kwality570 works in a windowless space, and wanted an easy care plant, so she crocheted this entire cactus garden. I’ll bet her co-workers are jealous!
No room for an entire garden? Perhaps some smaller cacti in a pretty bowl will do. geekgirl1000100 crocheted this cute set for a friend.

Faux cacti not only look great, they require no care AND they won’t hurt you! If you’d like to see more, be sure to click on the Craftster tag “cactus“.

    These are so adorable! I am clearly going to have to crochet myself some cacti, since I seem to be murdering succulent plants left and right around my house.
