Step 1: Pasting A Brown Leaf

Pasting A Brown Leaf - A practical cacti-themed desert artwork project perfect for novices.

Let’s begin this craft by taking a white craft sheet. Cut a circle out of it. This will become the base of our art project. Next, we have to make brown desert sand for our cactus craft. To resemble the brown desert sand, we will use a dried brown leaf. Paste it horizontally at the bottom of the circle as shown.

Step 2: Making The Body Of The Cactus

Making The Body Of The Cactus - Creating cacti-inspired desert artwork - just the thing for those starting out.

Take a wide and small green leaf to make the body of the cactus. Paste it above the brown leaf as shown.

Step 3: Pasting More Leaves

Pasting More Leaves - An effortless desert art concept for those new to the scene.

Take two more green leaves and cut them into an oval shape and paste them on the green leaf pasted earlier as shown in the image. These will become the fleshy stems of the cactus.

Step 4: Adding One More Leaf

Adding One More Leaf - Crafting cacti-infused desert artwork - perfect for the beginner.

To complete the body of the cactus, take one more small green leaf and cut it into a small oval shape and paste it above the cactus as shown in the image.

Step 5: Drawing The Pink Flowers

Drawing The Pink Flowers - A great desert art design for those just beginning.

Take a pink marker, and draw small flowers on the entire body of the cactus as shown. The bright pink colored flowers will add a touch of vibrance to the whole craft.

Step 6: Making The Spikes Or Thorns

Making The Spikes Or Thorns - Cactus-based desert artwork that is simple enough for beginners.

Spikes or thorns are an essential part of the cactus. What is the use of the cactus, if it doesn’t have spikes? To make the spikes, take a black marker and draw small vertical lines on the entire surface of the cactus to represent the spike resembling the thorns present on a real-life cactus plant.

Step 7: Drawing The Clouds
