Craft adorable new homes for your prickly plants! If you’re a fan of succulents and love adding a touch of whimsy to your space, this step-by-step guide is perfect for you.

  • Paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Clear Coat
  • Wire or string for hanging
  • Smooth rocks of various sizes
  • Sand
  • Small plant pots or containers


Step 1:

Gather smooth rocks of different shapes and sizes to resemble cacti.

Step 2:

Start by applying a base coat of green (we used Secret Garden) paint to each rock. Let the paint dry completely.

Step 3:

Wait about an hour until the paint feels dry to the touch. Add details like cactus spikes or patterns. You can also add white dots or lines to mimic thorns or blooms.

Step 4:

Arrange your painted rocks in the pots, gently pressing them into place.

Step 5:

If you’re going to keep your Rock Cactus outside, make sure to wait 24 hours for the paint to dry, then apply our Clear Coat.

Step 6:

Find a suitable place to display the Rock Cacti. They can be placed just about anywhere but look especially adorable on a windowsill.
