We had a blast while we were in Arizona and throughout the southwest. There were literally cacti everywhere. I was constantly in awe of their beauty. I know why cacti are so popular in home decor, party decor, and DIY projects these days! I wanted to share an idea I created to display in a recent recipe post for Hunt's Canned Tomatoes (see it here).
These little decorations were so easy and pretty inexpensive. I love how the ribbon really dressed up these terra cotta pots so well.
2.75" - 4" Terra Cotta Pots
Lace Ribbon (found here)
Small Amount Of Potting Soil & Small Measuring Cup
1.) Measure Your Ribbon - See how much ribbon you need by wrapping the ribbon/lace around the terra cotta pots, and cutting the ribbon where it meets the other end without overlapping.
2.) Add a small line of glue around the top rim of the pot, and press ribbon pieces all the way around the top of the pot. Make sure you wipe any excess glue that seeps out. Next, we plant the cacti in their new homes.
Aren't they pretty?! I think the would be lovely for a Cinco de Mayo celebration, wedding, shower, and more!
3.) Next, we will plant our cacti in their beautiful new pots. Make sure your cacti will fit!
4.) Now, take the cacti and its dirt out of the plastic pot it came in. Knock off any loose dirt into a container or trash can, and allow the roots to loosen up a bit.
5.) Place the cactus into its new home!
6.) Add a bit of new dirt on top of the cactus, and pat down to secure into place. Make sure it's not leaning too far to one side, and there you have it! A new little addition to your party decor ideas, or your home!
Aren't they cute...
