Step One

Print out the cactus template on paper.  I used THIS template.  Cut out the desired patterns.

Step Two


Cut two pieces of Oly-Fun fabric to fit a 10″ by 10″ cut of Stiffen Interfacing.

Step Three

Trace cactus pattern on the Oly-Fun fabric.  You will need one full cactus piece and 6 half pieces.

Step Four

Start with the largest cactus piece.  Glue a half cactus piece to the center of the full piece.
Glue two other half cactus pieces on either side of the piece you glued on in step three.  Repeat steps 2 and 3 on the other half of the cactus.

Step Five

To make the flowers, use a hole punch to make 8-10 circles from Oly-Fun fabric.  Fold the circles in half and skewer them on a pin.  Use a dot of hot glue on the base of the bunch and add a full circle to hold the flower in place.  Hot glue this to the top of the cacti.

Fill a container with decorative stones and arrange the mini cactus garden on the stones.
