Crochet Cactus as home decor are such a fun project. These little crochet cactus are a great way to use up your yarn scraps. Using different shades of green also helps to make them more interesting and realistic. I love the fact that the supplies needed for this project are inexpensive and easy to find. You can make several of them and place them on a window sill or on a mantle. Mix them in with “real” plants for fun.
These little Crochet Cactus don’t require watering, any maintenance and best of all they are Ouchie Free. If Ouchie a word? Well it was around my house when my kids were growing up. I hope you enjoy this project. Be sure to share this post with your friends and family. Keep reading to get more info and the free written pattern. (I have uploaded a video tutorial if you prefer to watch the video on the last page of this post ).
I recently went on a trip to Texas. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a fun trip. My uncle passed away and we traveled to attend his funeral. While traveling we did stop at several rest areas and shops. I kept seeing small bowls of different types of cacti. They are so pretty but I was apprehensive about all the thorns. I didn’t feel comfortable having to store them up in a box (they wrap them in newspapers) and then unwrapping them when we got home. I did love the idea of having a few and how beautiful they look. Several even having little flowers. What’s a great to do? Crochet your own of course. Here is what I came up with.
You will need the following supplies for your Crochet Cactus:
scraps of yarn in various shades of green (you can make them all one shade)
Scraps of colorful yarn for the flowers (flowers are optional)
polyfiber stuffing (you can also use cotton)
1 small glass container (I purchased mine at my local Dollar Tree store)
small pebbles ((I purchased mine at my local Dollar Tree store)
Crochet Hook size H/ 5.0mm for the cactus
Crochet Hook size B / 2.25mm for flowers
bamboo cooking skewers or straws (to hold cactus inside the rocks)
