I love the way these Prickly Pear grow out west. Many with their flavorful fruit and showy flowers. You'll recognize it immediately in this miniature.
This beading tutorial offers instructions for making the mini cactus. The instructions include 10 pages of instruction, including a LOT of color photos and diagrams of each step. This tutorial assumes you know the basics of beadweaving and peyote stitch.
