Cactus Neon Light


There is something about a cactus isn’t there? They are weird and wonderful plants, which not only look great, but also are incredible in the way they survive. The cactus trend has been very popular recently, with many companies creating funky and kitsch accessories and interiors based round the cactus. So I was thinking, let’s jump on board and celebrate this wonderful piece of nature too! And as it is National DIY Day soon (April 2nd), this is the perfect project to get your creative juices flowing.


What better way to do this though, than by combining this trend with neon rope – it’s bold, bright and fun! This DIY cactus neon light will look great in your home, plus it is completely customisable to fit your scheme.




You will need:


Green craft wire

Green neon rope

Thin craft wire

Flowerpot

Toy stuffing

Neon pink spray paint

Fabric

Scissors

Glue gun and glue sticks

Wooden block




Directions:


Step 1- To begin, give the flowerpot a wipe so it is clean and dry. Now spray the flowerpot with neon pink spray paint all over. Leave to dry.



Step 2 - Bend the green craft wire into a medium sized cactus shape.



Step 3 - Now with the neon rope light, attach it to the wire cactus with the thin craft wire at intervals following the shape.



Step 4 - To help the wire cactus stand up in the flowerpot, glue a wooden block into the base of the flowerpot.



Step 5 - Cut a strip of fabric, enough to cover the top of the flowerpot.
