Happy New Year’s! This fun New Year’s craft is a great way to celebrate and craft for the new year. These cute cactus painted rocks and super easy to make and are great for all crafting abilities. See the below for the exact supplies for this easy New Year’s craft and the step-by-step directions.
Supplies for New Year’s Craft Painted Cactus Rocks (affiliate links provided for convenience)
- Mini Terra Cotta Pots – 1.5″″ pots (you can also find these mini pots at most craft stores)
- Green, Silver and gold acrylic paint.
- Acrylic Paint Pens- I like both these Tooli Art extra fine acrylic paint pens and these Artistro extra fine paint pens.
- Air Dry Clay
- Mini top hat (optional)
4. Make little mini New Year’s hats. I used a silver paint pen on a mini top hat for one. And for the other I twisted two pipe cleaners together and glued a piece of card stock on top with the year.
5. To keep the rocks in place, I added air dry clay to the inside of the flower pot.
6. Insert the finished rock directly into the flower pot and push it slightly down into the clay. The clay will eventually harden around the rock and keep it in place.
See how easy it is to create this fun New Year’s craft. The best part is that you’ll now have a plant that you can easily keep alive all year!
