In trying to figure out patterns I've amassed quite the stash of cactus shapes and containers. I thought I'd better put some together to give them away and get them out of the house before they take over!


All the metal buckets and ceramic mugs came from the dollar store and I got a lot of the yarn at Michael's with half off coupons so it's been a fairly frugal project so far. In money anyhow, they each take hours and hours to make, lol. Keeps me busy and out of trouble Wink.

Lovely!  I really like how you used the coffee mugs for the pot.  Smiley

Thanks friends!

Oh man, I have so many more of these in the works. There are cactus parts and dirt circles littering the bedroom side table and floor. I just can't seem to stop making them! There will be some more posts soon, something a little different too. I'm excited about that project Smiley.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Oh these are just darling! Perfect for that spot you want a plant to live, but there's not enough light or it would get knocked over too easily.
