Handamde Holidays: Plush Cactus from Recycled Felt

Got someone on your list who has sort of a black thumb? Gift them with a plush cactus that is impossible to kill!

I love a good home decor gift! This plush cactus would look so sweet on a coffee table or mantle, and the best part is that unlike a real plant, you’re not gifting the burden of remembering to water it.

Most of the plush plants I’ve seen have been knit or crochet, and for those of us that don’t have any yarn skills, that basically means they’re off the table. After a little bit of experimenting, I figured out how to make my own plush plants using my sewing machine and recycled felt! Yay!
