I’ve been having lots of fun crafting recently, I know I always say that but this is supposed to be a craft blog. I love looking through my photo stream and seeing the photos of all my makes. My children have been keeping me busy lately but I still found time to make some painted pebble cactus plants with them. I would love to keep some succulents but when I went to buy some I got a handful of needles. Instead I thought it would be fun to make some kid-friendly versions.
My 5 year old helped me paint some pebbles to make some kid-friendly cactus plants. We collected some lovely smooth pebbles on a recent beach holiday and this was a really fun activity. I think they will also be a great addition to our fairy garden.
We used some lovely smooth pebbles we collected from the beach and painted them red and green with acrylic paint.
I think they look pretty realistic and not bad for a joint effort. I love succulents and am still hankering for some real ones. Perhaps I will try to make some felt ones soon.
