Giant cactus dolly

I saw this in my daughter’s room the other day and realized that it’s never been shared here. Maybe because I thought it was too little-kid for her and was planning a photo shoot before finding someone to give it away to. The minute I showed it to her though, she scooped it up and ran off with it, lol. Just goes to show, you’re never too old to love adorable handmades.

She sits up in her pot or on her own, there’s hard card in the base and a little baggy of heavy pebbles to give her weight.

She’s pretty huge. I don’t know what inspired me to make such a thing but I had the idea and needed to do it just because.


Cute and looks very huggable! I’m impressed how you did the hole in the potting soil.

Oh she is just adorable!! I love a faux plant, whether it’s super realistic, or cartoony cute :heart_eyes:

Flexing! LOL, I will have to mention that to @Pigeon. The kids use that term in a funny sort of slang way, ha.


So adorable! It is definitely special when your mom can make you something custom and cuddly :sparkling_heart:

It’s awesome!
