If, like me, you’re a sucker for looking at bullet journal spreads and doodlers on instagram you’ll notice that there’s a new trend in themes: cacti and succulents! In my opinion, part of the reason that it’s taken off in such a big way is that cacti and succulents are super easy to draw, virtually anyone can do it. But even if you are a bit stuck for ideas on how to start there are resources out there that can help you master the doodle. Take the popular book from Peggy Dean who produced a second Botanical Line Drawing guide on how to draw cacti and succulents step by step. You can get it here from amazon.
Stickers & Sticky Notes
If you don’t have time to doodle then why not invest in some cacti stickers. You can use these on virtually anything to customise it with your new cacti obsession or you can use them in your journal to fill in blank space. If you’re looking for some cute doodle style stickers what about these stickers from Paperchase for only £1!

There are also plenty of cactus themed accessories available. Take these pencil cases from Kawaii Pen Shop available in 3 awesome designs. Or you can get a rose gold cactus style bulldog clip from Etsy for only £1.30!
We couldn’t go through this post without mentioning some of the amazing cactus and plant themed washi tapes on offer. These 3 beautifully designed cactus washi tapes are on sale on Etsy. You can pick your design or get all 3 as a set.
Notebooks & Memos
I’m absolutely obsessed with this cactus notebook that you can have personalised! I mean it can’t be a coincidence that my name is on one of the sample pictures right? Obviously I’m just meant to buy it, and you can get it here from Etsy. I also love these little cactus memo pads from Kawaii Pen shop which are perfect for taking quick notes!
Last but not least here are some adorable gel ink pens topped with mini cacti. I have actually already bought these and they’re on my way to me in the post!
