DIY: Foliage Planter

This galvanized metal foliage planter adds a great touch of the outdoors to my new gallery wall. And as a bonus, I don’t have to water the plant!!

You will need:

Step 1: Cut each individual foliage stem off of the backing.

Step 2: Cut the floral foam as needed to fill the planter. I used plastics bags as a filler below the foam, because I didn’t have enough foam to fill the whole container. (P.S. Don’t tell my mom I used my good kitchen knife to cut the foam!)

Step 3: Poke the stems of foliage into the foam. Make sure to place the stems close together or the foam will be visible. I had to use hot glue on a couple of stems that would not stay in place.
