Could a cactus project get any cuter than these DIY paper earrings?!

I just adore these prickly plants, even though these particular saguaros couldn't get any smoother to the touch. Overall they measure just over 1 1/2", but you can adjust the size to meet your needs in your Silhouette software (if you don't have one, don't miss out! The Silhouette CAMEO 3 4T wireless starter bundle, including the cutting mat, is still under $200 on!) Since I did most of the work for you, all you have to do is click and download. Then, assemble the earrings with few other tools.



1. Download this free SVG file and cut the cactus shapes on green paper. Although I used a heavy card stock, to ensure the earrings don't become too flimsy as they are thin and small, I used the crafter's tape to attach one on top of the other. Do this for all of them.

2. Punch a small hole at the top of each cactus.

3. Use the pliers to open the fish hook ear wires.

4. Then insert a cactus into each one, and close them up to complete the set.

Instant cuteness for your summer wardrobe!

Total project time: about 15 minutes for two pairs of cactus earrings.
