You guys. It’s August. AUGUST. I saw a tree with yellowing leaves yesterday.
Where has this summer gone??? Oh, right, I spent the whole time painting.
Fall is my favorite, but I’m not ready yet. Instead I’m distracting myself from the impending season change with the most summery thing I can think of: DIY cactus projects.
My last piñata encounter ended with my friend Sarah and me knocking it off the string and beating the thing to death on the ground with broom handles. Time for a redo! Mini cactus piñatas it is. By Oh Happy Day.
How cute is this cactus pillow by Everything Emily?? I want to cover our couch with them.
Another pillow—is my subconscious telling me to go back to bed? (Yes.) Loving the simple graphic pattern of this easy stamped cactus pillow by—appropriately—Patchwork Cactus.
Lucy of Craftberry Bush calls her painted rock cacti garden a “children’s craft,” but I am not even remotely embarrassed to admit that I LOVE cutesy kids’ decor. And anyways it looks totally sophisticated, don’t you think?
And for those of you who have a green thumb, a real live cactus garden by the always delightful A Beautiful Mess.
