12 Great Cactus Crafts

12 Great Cactus Crafts to brighten up your home

Cactus Crafts: I don’t know if its just because its on my mind, but I have been noticing a lot of cacti around at the moment not just the real ones, artificial ones, cactus prints, candles etc. I must admit there is something appealing about cacti, my son has even requested a cactus display for his soon to be revamped room. Last month I presented 12 pineapple crafts, here I have gathered a round up of my favourite 12 cactus related posts from the net to hopefully inspire you.
