It is time to start Decking the Halls for the Holidays so today I have a festive Gold Dipped Foam Faux-Bark Planter that will look beautiful on a side table, on a mantel or as a centerpiece for your Holiday table! I can’t wait to show you how easy this is to make! Seriously, it is a beginner level craft, so don’t be intimidated. I was inspired by the Gold Dipped Cube Arrangement in the Make It: Fun® Holiday eBook <– make sure to check this out because it is chock full of easy DIY Holiday Projects.

Isn’t this planter gorgeous? And you would never know it started life as a foam block! Plus, I feel like I can never have enough succulents in my life. In fact, I think I need to head out and pick up a few more of these faux ones to use throughout my home.
