DIY Rock Cactus Craft – rock painting

What do you need

  • River rocks of various shapes (long, flat ovals work best)
  • Acrylic paint: different shades of green, white (you can also use tulip dimension paint for the thorns)
  • brush
  • jug
  • decorative sand


The first thing you should do is wash the stones to remove dust and dirt. When they are clean and dry, paint them green. Allow the paint to dry completely.


Now take white acrylic paint or tulip dimension paint and draw thorns. You can draw them in different ways: dotted straight lines, pointing in different directions, dots… Let them dry.

Fill the pot halfway with decorative sand. Glue on the painted stone cacti and add more decorative sand around them to fill the pot to the brim.

Your stone cactus art is ready! Now you have a plant that will never die 🙂
