It’s not just for egg hunts either—this Easter craft doubles as seasonal décor.
Move over succulents, there’s a new trendy plant in town—the cactus. And although you could pick one up just about anywhere (even most grocery stores carry a version of the plant!), it’s way more fun to make a faux cactus that’s perfect for Easter, or any spring celebration.
All you need is a mini terracotta pot, some sand, a hard-boiled egg, and a green marker. Pink crepe paper is optional, but we couldn’t resist the pretty topper.
To extend the shelf life of this little DIY project (because who wouldn’t want to keep this on their desk or window sill forever?!), use a pin to poke two holes—one on the top and one on the bottom—in an uncooked egg. Then, put your mouth to the top hole and blow the contents of the egg into a small dish, the garbage, or the sink. (Bonus points for no waste and cooking the egg!) Once the egg is emptied, rinse it through warm water to ensure any excess comes out, then let dry. Continue with the craft as instructed below.
