This Cucumber Cactus craft is so easy and fun to make. Who knew you could make a cactus from an inexpensive vegetable? This craft makes a great centerpiece at a cowboy or western theme party!
Sand or graham cracker crumbs
1. Cut your cucumbers to the size you wish.
2. Break the ends off your tooth picks and insert them into the cucumber. If you don't want the ends to be as "prickly" insert the sharp end into the cucumber so the blunt end is sticking out (this is a better option for younger children).Sprinkle some graham wafer crumbs, or real sand, onto a plate and arrange your cacti.
This would make a great centerpiece for a table, or in the middle of a veggie tray!
