DIY Cactus Room Decor Ideas

I'm going to show you how to make two DIY cactus room decor ideas. You're going to learn how to make a cactus pillow and a cactus frame art idea. These DIY Tumblr room decor ideas look really cute and they're really easy to make.

Here's the video version of these DIYs:



DIY Cactus Pillow


I'm going to show you how to make the cactus pillow first.

What you want to do first is that you want to draw out a cactus onto some fabric with a pencil and make sure you draw the cactus bigger than what you want because when you flip inside out later it will become smaller.

You can make the cactus pillow out of any color or pattern that you want and you can make it any size that you want.

After you're done drawing out your cactus, you want to cut it out.

Once you're done cutting your cactus out, you want to trace around the cactus onto the fabric you're using to get a second cactus. Then you want to cut it out.


Now you should have two pieces of fabric in a shape of a cactus.


What you want to do now is that you want to place both of the right sides of the fabric on top of each other.

Then you want to put pins around the edges of the fabric so they stay together. You can pin the fabric something like this.


After you're done pinning the fabric together you can sew it together with a sewing machine or you can hand stitch the fabric together.

If you don't want to sew the fabric you can go ahead and glue the fabric together.

Once you're done sewing the fabric together you can flip it inside out.

After you flip inside out you can put some pillow stuffing inside of it.

When you're done stuffing it you can fold the opening shut and pin it together. Then you can sew the opening shut.

If you glued the pillow together just fold the opening shut and glue the opening shut.

When you're done sewing the opening shut you can tie the thread you were sewing with in a knot and then you want to cut off the extra thread and you can take the pins out of the pillow.


Now you want to take some yarn and cut a tiny piece of yarn and then you want to tie the yarn into a knot so there's a knot in the middle of that piece of yarn. Then you can fold the yarn in half and trim the yarn if you need too.

These will be for the spines on the cactus and you can make as many of these as you want.

When you're done making the spines you can lay them out onto the pillow to see what you want the pillow to look like.

When you like the layout of the spines you can either glue on the spines or you can sew them on.

DIY Cactus Frame Art


Now I'm going to show you how to make this simple cactus frame art idea.

The first thing you want to do is you want to trace the back of the frame onto a piece of paper that's any color with a pencil.

Then you want to cut off the extra paper you don't need and then you want to put the piece of paper into the frame.

Once you get it into the frame you can draw on your cactuses or cacti onto the paper with a pencil. You can use the frame as a guideline so you know where to stop drawing. You can also make your drawing horizontal or vertical and you can put as many cactuses that you want into the drawing.

When you're done drawing your image you want to take it out of the frame and then you want to put a scrap piece of paper under the piece of paper that has your drawing so you don't ruin your surface your making this on and you want draw over the what you drew with a permanent marker or you can use any type of marker you have.

After you're done with your drawing you can erase any pencil markings and then you can put it back into the frame.
