It's always nice to have something green in your home...but if you're anything like me, you are probably terrible at taking care of the plants you purchase. That's why cacti are great! They're not fussy, and if you forget about them...it's really not that big of a deal. Plus, they come in all different types, sizes, and levels of spikiness.
What's the best way to welcome a new plant into your house?
Don't leave them naked...stitch 'em a home!
Here's what you'll need:
A thin board of crafting wood, a drill, a saw, scissors, yarn, a pencil, a ruler, and some sandpaper.
Saw the wood into five identical squares, or get them cut at the store.
Measure out even increments where you'll thread your yarn and mark them with a pencil.
On four of the squares, do this only on three sides. On the last, mark all the edges.
Use your teeniest drill bit to make holes at your marks.
Sand down any frayed edges.
Thread your yarn through the holes as such, making sure to maintain a 90-degree angle.
Tie off the thread flush with the wood. Repeat on all sides, and...
There you have it! Your new plant friend has a cute, cozy home.

Don't be afraid to get creative with this! If you want to add some color, paint the wood before marking where to drill. You can also use some glitter or gloss for a flashier look. Hey, it's your planter!
