DIY Paper Cactus

by Lynn Lilly, Jun 06 2019

I love flowers and plants but I just don't have a green thumb lately so for my summer decorations I am going paper! I love paper flowers and I thought why not create a fun summer arrangement with succulents and cacti! The key to them looking realistic is creating the right amount of dimension and color variation. Marabu Art Crayons are the perfect tool to easily apply color and blend for seamless variation. The best part about art crayons is that they work on multi-surfaces making them a fun tool to add color to the wood box I wanted to use to display the plants. Check out the video and supply list below!
