School is back in session, and to ease yourself in, why not do some easy crafting? This DIY cactus rock garden will not only provide some much-needed zen, it's also functional as a photo-holder. I love projects that are simple and fun---but I especially love when they use natural ingredients. Get outside with your kids and gather rocks, moss, other elements you'd like to include in your garden. I built mine using sand in a terracotta pot, but you can put this in a mason jar or other container that you like. I also painted my pot using some washi tape to make a geometric design.
Here's what you need:
- Pot or jar
- Paint in various green shades
- White Paint Pen
- Moss (optional)
- Photo! (also optional)
