Who’s ready for a fiesta?! I honestly can’t believe we’re already into the month of May. I’m a little late for Cinco De Mayo but there are still 34 Taco Tuesday’s left in the year! I think that’s reason enough to celebrate with a little cactus DIY.

- Platinum 6 Machine
- Cactus Contour Die
- Corrugated cardboard
- Wood circles (acts as base to hold the cactus)
- Glue gun
- Green paint
- Striped ribbon (I cut the ribbon and added it to the hats for more color)
- Mini sombreros
- Mini black mustaches (I cut mine out of paper)
- Food labels/name cards
- Cut cardboard in half (can fit 2 cactus per sheet)
- Tape cardboard, ridges down, onto the cactus die (I just like to make sure it stays in place). You can see how I taped it diagonally so the ridges would be straight once the cactus was standing up
- Run the die through the machine
- Paint cactus and wood circles green – the cardboard will get a little soft with the wet paint but stiffens back up as it dries
- Glue cactus to wood circle
- Glue on mustache, sombrero and tag!
So easy, but so festive! I love using the cardboard for material because it looks like a real cactus with the ridges! I have them shown as food labels but next fiesta I throw, I’m definitely putting these little guys on the kids table as place settings.
Love this?! Pin for later…
