INSIDE: DIY no sew felt cactus Christmas tree ornaments or gift toppers.
It took me about a decade to accept that I live among plants with thorns, rocks in place of grass in the front yard and people running around exclaiming, “But it’s a dry heat”.
Yet, somewhere around Year 10, I sort of fell into the groove of southwest living and have come to even enjoy desert living (gasp!).
So in honor of my “acceptance”, I’m sharing with you no sew felt cactus Christmas tree ornaments. Minus the thorns, of course!

diy cactus decoration
Trace the cactus template onto a piece of felt. Be sure to cut TWO pieces.
Add a drop of hot glue to Side #1 of the cactus and place a small section of looped ribbon. Add more glue to the remainder of the cactus and place Side #2 on top.
Cut a section of embroidery thread. Use small drops of glue to weave it around the cactus like a garland.
Cut out small felt ornaments and a star. And glue in place.
