- Cactus Wood Shelf
- Terracotta Pots (mine are 3 1/2 inches)
- Spray Paint (in two colors)
- Darice Craft Paint (in a third color)
- Small Plastic Cups
- Darice Paint Brush
- Hole Drill Bit the Size of Your Pots
- Darice Scissors
- Cactus Plants
You’ll want to begin your DIY plant display by measuring and marking where your four pots should be. Use a hole drill attachment to drill a hole in each of the four spots. I did mine slightly smaller than the pot diameter. Clean up the holes with sandpaper. Then clean your entire cactus shelf before continuing.
Paint the shelf in one color and the pots in another. I used white and yellow. Spray paint makes this step go a bit faster. Use a few coats of spray paint and allow to dry in between coats. You will want to make sure you paint the top and bottom of the DIY plant display as both will be visible on your wall.
Allow everything to dry completely then add an accent color to the pots if desired. I used craft paint and paintbrush to do a stripe around the top of mine. This may require multiple coats of paint. Allow those to dry before continuing.
Then add rocks to the plastic cups and plant your cactus inside. You may need additional dirt depending on how big your cacti are to start with. Hang your cactus DIY plant display in your room then drop in your terra cotta pots with the plastic pots and cactus inside.
