DIY- Mini cacti pots

There are babies everywhere in my garden right now, cacti that is. One early morning while I was out watering my garden and making sure the wild birds and bees had food and water I noticed there were all kinds of baby cacti everywhere. I thought how cute it would be to decorate some tiny…
