No green thumb? Create a garden of zero-maintenance cacti.
If you love houseplants but manage to kill even the most low-maintenance varieties, forget about the real deal and create a garden of everlasting cacti instead. First, learn how to make a paper cactus following the steps demonstrated by crafter Lia Griffith, taken from her new book, Cutting Machine Crafts. Our recommendation: Make several cacti in various sizes and shades of green to build your own Southwest-style garden on your windowsill or kitchen counter. The best part: It will always look amazing—no water, sun, or care required.
