Shake Rag Alley Center for the Arts

Cute Paper Cactus

July 27, 2022

Schedule: 10-11 am Wed

Instructor: Carole Spelić

Registration Deadline: July 26

Description

Here’s a “plant” that never needs watering! We’ll punch 3 1/3″ circles from plain or patterned paper—you choose—and, after adding pointy paper spines, glue the circles together in wedges. Topped with a cheerful flower, the cactus is adhered to a cardboard base that is pressed into a real terra cotta flowerpot. Just add sand to complete the desert-like look! Grades K-6.

Class size 10

  • Tuition $10
