DIY wire cactus

text2

I've finally found a plant I won't kill! A DIY wire cactus is perfect for a plant vibe that needs no TLC because apparently, I don't have a green thumb. A gathering of these would be so chic on a window sill or anywhere you'd typically place cactus. Also you can get creative with the shape because, just like snowflakes, and humans, no wire cactus is exactly alike!

WARNING: some of the following how-to images are rated PG13 for their weiner-like appearance.

Do It!:
  1. Pump up a balloon and tie a not to seal it
  2. Wrap your wire around the ballon to get your desired cactus spear - Tip: it looks cool if the wire criss crosses over each other and it also helps stabalize.
  3. Pop your balloon within the wire cactus spear
  4. Repeat step 1 though 3 to create two more wire cacti of varying height.
  5. Insert them into your ceramic pot.
  6. Fill with sand.
  7. Place your new cactus wherever you want, no sunlight or water needed! ;)
