Here's the BEFORE: a beautiful cactus in a boring plastic pot.
Here's the AFTER: a beautiful cactus in a shimmery, dangly, swirly, spiky and sweet beaded pot!
It's super simple to do, with minimal supplies. Here's the DIY.
Cut some short and long pieces of craft wire. Extra cute points if it's a fun color! On one end of each piece, turn a little loop.
Slide a big bead onto each wire.
For the short beaded dangles, just bend the free end over.
For the long, squiggly beaded dangles, use pliers or your fingers to make irregular swoopy bends, like so:
Then finish up with a sharp bend at the end.
Make a bunch...don't even worry about making them all the same length or shape. Freeform, bae!
Hang them on the plastic pot, staggering the lengths.
(Yes, that is a live cactus. It's called Devil's Tongue, and it is one demonic little so-and-so. Use care and/or wear gloves when hanging the dangles.)
All bedangled? Lovely!
I like the way the dangles echo the colors and spiky sass of the cactus. Might be fun to try this with different types of houseplants, matching the mood of the beads to the foliage? And I will never look down my nose at a boring plastic pot again.
