Faux Rock Cactus

Turn ordinary stones into extraordinary faux plant with a bit of paint.

Are you one of those who either dry your plants or overwater them?? I am, and I cannot deny unfortunately. So many solutions I have tried to solve this problem but none of them worked. I simply can’t live with plants under one roof.

From time to time, though I could find, some smart and crafty ideas to make my own faux plant. I’m not saying that they are better, but as far as I am concerned they are the only ones that can survive my over-attention (or the lack of it).

Even though you can find many of them, this specific one, created by Brie who runs Like The Cheese blog caught my attention so much that I decided to share it with with you. This multi-talented girl prepared a step by step photo tutorial , together with detailed list of tools and supplies, so that you can take an inspiration and create your Painted Rock Cacti garden in your own home.

It doesn’t matter if you are the lucky person who manages to take a good care of real plants, or a plant “killer”. Your imagination and creativity can explode while taking up this cute and easy project, either together with your kids or alone, just for fun of making.
