Add global style with a fiesta inspired DIY Mexican cactus decoration and find other Mexican home decor ideas at The Global Styler.
Hi there! Welcome back to The Global Styler. A monthly series featuring globally inspired home decorating ideas and DIYs. Since Cinco De Mayo was last weekend, we decided to stick with the fiesta flow and share more Mexican style. I turned a faux pear cactus into a colorful Mexican cactus with a simple DIY. It turned out so cute that I might have to give more plants a facelift.
DIY Mexican Cactus Decor
The faux cactus came home a few months ago for my daughter’s global boho bedroom but I never intended for it to stay as is. This was the perfect excuse to finally give it some attention.
Add global style to a faux plant!
- Faux plant (Cacti and succulents look really great!)
- Dollar store flowers
Tip: Look at pictures of the actual plant to see what kind of blossoms they have and try to find a close match.
- Wire/floral cutters
- Hot glue gun/sticks
- Paint and brush
Create a Mexican cactus decoration in 2 steps:
- Update the pot with a coat or two of blue paint. Choose a deep hue that resembles Mexican Talavera pottery to add global style. I knew my Velvet Finishes’ “Handsome” paint would be perfect for this.
- Trim pink blossoms off a faux flower stem and hot glue on the tops of the cactus and nestled in corners.
And there you go! An easy cactus makeover for Mexican decor.
Isn’t it a fun punch of color? I decided to bring inside a garden stool for it to sit on after I carefully examined it for spiders. 😉
Isn’t it so easy to add a pop of color? Have you painted anything lately?
