Easter Egg Cactus DIY


Easter is approaching and I am stoked about decorating my mantel.  I thought it would be fun to paint some “cactus” eggs like I’ve seen around Pinterest.  This craft was so easy and fun!  Here’s what I used:

Plain white artificial eggs at Walmart

Tiny pots from Michael Craft

Acrylic Paint

Dirt (yup, I just used real dirt in these post)

Pink Felt

Glue Gun

I started by painting the eggs green.  Once the paint was dry, I took a tiny paint brush to make the white dotted lines.  As the eggs were drying I painted the pots.  To make the flower on top of the eggs, I took a tiny piece of felt, scrunched it up and glued it to the top with hot glue.  I then used hot glue to make the eggs stick to the dirt (although mine would probably stay put in the pot without the hot glue).

Easy right?
