Christmas Cheer Cactus
New Crochet Pattern!
This year has been a bust and I for one am using that as my excuse to go all out with the Holiday Decorations… How about you? Beyond the classic tree, wreath, stockings, etc., I like to add some fun stuff each year too – something cute, quirky, and original! My new Christmas Cheer Cactus Crochet Pattern fits the bill perfectly! Think of him as festive decor that you can leave up all Winter long! This little cactus is a quick and fun project, so it’s perfect for adding to your Holiday Home Decor collection, and fabulous Hostess Gift, or other last minute gift! Yay!! I hope y’all love this new pattern as much as I do! 🙂
Crochet Cactus Pattern
I love plants and flowers. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen that I incorporate one or the other in nearly every photo I post. So I’ve honestly been wanting to create a crochet cactus pattern for a while now, but also wanted to make it unique. So with Christmas and the holidays approaching, and being a fabulous source of inspiration, the idea of the Christmas Cactus was born! I originally considered wrapping him in lights like a desert Christmas Tree, but I wanted this to be a quick pattern that you could make to decorate or as a last minute holiday gift, so I ultimately decieded to adorn him with a Santa Hat and cute Kawaii face instead and I’m so happy with how he turned out!
My Crochet Christmas Cactus uses the same basic construction method and stitch pattern as my Gourd-geous Pumpkins Pattern, so if you had a chance to make those then you’re already well on your way to success with this amigurumi cactus too!

Perfect for Holiday Gifting
I love that this adorable amigurumi Christmas Cactus is perfectly festive for decorating for the Holidays, but you can totally leave him or her up all winter long! Even better, since you can easily just leave his hat off, then keep him hanging out all year round! Plus he’d be sad if you put him away… He wants to bring a bit of holiday cheer to you everyday, who could say “No” to that?? 😉
This amigurumi mini cactus would make the perfect gift for almost anyone! My 11 year old daughter has claimed one of my samples already, so that tells me you can confidently gift one to any young adult! Score! This little cactus would also make a unique gift for that special Teacher, or for your best friend! Don’t forget to make a couple for yourself too!
Any crochet Christmas Decorations are practically guaranteed to be a hit at your Holiday markets and craft shows! Since pretty much any succulent, especially a cactus is super trendy right now, and you make make one in just a couple hours, this little crochet cactus is sure to be a big seller! Make sure to add a few to your Etsy shop too, since it looks like online sales are likely to be huge this year!!
