Directions for Play Doh Cactus:
Form a cactus shape from green play doh, which is a pretty broad range I know. Think about the last cactus you saw and shape it by hand. As you can see I made a bulb-ish shape.
Use a few rocks and press them into the bottom of the shape to anchor your cactus.
Make sure your shape will fit into the bottom of the small pot. I squeezed the bottom just a bit to fit.
With a toothpick,poke as many little holes in the faux cactus as you like. I made holes all over this one.
Allow to naturally dry and display.
Our faux cactus held up for about 6 weeks or so before it started to look super dry. At that time we tossed it.
