well it all started when i got a clear glass vase from the dollar tree.
it was tall and lean with kinda like a bulb end.
i was gonna transform it into a cactus.
should i glue beads to it? paper mache it?
add some kind of extension for its branch thingies?
ugh. i've had the vase for weeks now and i just couldn't figure out how to do it without making it labor extensive.
it was driving me crazy.
until i was at one of my fave stores and found this on sale:
it was $8.99 and you get 8 of them.
worth it to me cuz i surrendered to that dollar tree vase idea and went with these instead.
and guess what?
i coulda made a hundred of these in the time it took me to write this post!
oh well, here goes:
these were in my craft stash but i know i got them at michael's at one point.
and look mini cactuses are born.
all ready when you have that cinco de mayo get together and use your little mexican blankets you got from party city.
place 'em right smack dab in that hole.
but where's the card you say?
well, i didn't have time to make one yet as it took forever to make up this post but i can always edit one in for you:
aren't they cute?
i only made 6 of them for each table setting but like i said you can make 8 total.
or put them on the food table for food labels too.
you can also use different green spray paints for variation.
you can stick the card on top of the flower like so:
just don't put senor taco's label next to all the churros or he may take the whole plate.
and i know i know i keep saying i don't celebrate cinco de mayo but keep making mexican stuff anyway.
i can't help it i have a crafting disease with no cure.
anyway, make 'em cuz they're super duper easy.
oh and here's that pinterest pic for you since i keep seeing all these kinda vertical pics floating around and have pinned a number of these myself.
