How to Make

  1. Paint the mini ceramic flower pot with the pink paint. Mix some white into the paint to create a lighter pink to paint the rim with. Leave to dry.
  2. Take a section of the green candle wax and mold into the shape of a cactus.
  3. Push some black candle wax into the bottom of the plant pot, then place the green cactus shape on top of this.
  4. Carefully push a skewer or cocktail stick into the middle of the green candle wax creating a hole. Cut a section off of the wick and then put the end of the wick into this hole.
  5. Using the skewer or cocktail stick, carefully make holes and spikes in the green candle wax to make it appear more like a cactus.
