Sometimes you just need a trip to Target. I was out of ideas, which is something happens to me almost every February. I told my mom that I couldn’t think of anything good to put on the blog, and she suggested that I put off stressing for the night. We’d head to Target the next day and maybe something there would spark an idea. Moms are smart like that. I headed down the craft supplies aisle (bless Target for selling craft supplies now) and found a basket full of fun things, including the supplies to make these pretty foiled geometric planters. They are the perfect way to add a bit of Spring brightness into your dreary February.
Watch this short video to see how easy it was for me to add some pretty gold foil accents to these raw wood planters. If you are already a Mad in Crafts YouTube subscriber, THANK YOU! If not, pop on over and hit the subscribe button so you don’t miss any of the fun.
I love how these planters turned out. I may end up switching the faux succulents out for the real thing once the weather warms up. If you choose to use real plants, I suggest not planting directly in the planters, but instead placing a small plastic pot inside each wood planter. These particular planters don’t have drainage holes, and succulents especially need to drain after they are watered. For more tips on the one type of plant I am able to keep alive, check out this post.
