That Cactus is Lookin' Sharp from nonarrativelines

How to Turn a Boring Stone into a Beautiful Cactus !


Well, so (NØ) has a looot to do those days and travels quite a bit !! And on top of that, she does not really have green fingers… It was time for taking action, so she decided to replace her stunted-tiny plant and turn it into… a beautiful cactus!


  • A pretty stone to pick from the garden…
  • Paintbrushes.
  • Some gouache (ideally green color!).
  • A gold or silver pencil (or any color).
  • A plant pot and a dead plant.

How to make it

Step 1: Wash your stone and color paint it. Let it dry.

Step 2: Paint little spots with the gouache to make the cactus flowers.

Step 3: Draw little crosses with your pencil for making sharp prickles !

That's it !… And no water needed! (NØ) is happy. How about you ?
