Supplies for Cactus Ornament Craft (affiliate links provided for convenience)


  1. Start by painting your ornaments shade of green with acrylic paint. I mixed several different shades since I was making more than one ornament. NOTE: I did two coats of paint so that there would be no streaks and the ornament would have full coverage.
  2. Once your ornament is completely dry, add face details and a cactus pattern using paint pens

3. Add hot glue to your mini flower pot and add the ornament. NOTE: I would remove then hot glue the silver top of the ornament just to be sure the hold is strong.

4. Add a small flower embellishment using hot glue.

See how easy it is to create your own cactus ornament for Christmas! This would make an adorable gift for a friend who loves cacti. You can add a cute message on the flower pot as well using paint pens.
