"I love giant cacti but they take years to grow and are really expensive to buy. So I thought it would be fun to make my own giant paper mache cacti to add some summer fun to my patio. They were really quite straight forward to make and this was a craft that all the family got involved in. During the summer they cactus sit on the patio bringing some fun to our parties and BBQ's. In the winter my sun has the cactus in his room and uses it as a coat/hat rack."
