And if cactus DIYs that are crocheted, knitted, cupcaked, wired, pincushioned and pillowed aren’t enough, I give you the DIY Cactus Pouf Tutorial from the Ohoh Blog.

From stich-em’sTumblr post:
My sister is moving away for school! Since every new home deserves a plant, I decided to crochet her a cactus. She actually had a real cactus before, but it died! So my sister gave me the pot it was in to make a new cactus (that hopefully will never die!)
Isn’t the pot adorable? The pot is 8cm in diameter and 4cm deep. It has pictures of cactus, cowboys, and mountains all around it.
– 4.0mm and 3.5mm hook. Only the flowers are made on a 3.5mm hk, everything else is made on the 4.0mm hook
– medium weight yarn in light brown, green, pink/red, and yellow (I used Loops and Threads Impeccable in Soft Taupe, Fern, Arbor Rose, and Butterscotch
I sewed all 3 flowers on the top of the cacti. I think they made the cacti a lot more colourfull!
I love how crocheting into the back loops makes a ribbed effect! It gives the cacti a lot more texture, just like the real ones! But this one is safe to touch and hug!
