Outdoor decorating with Make it Fun®

This month’s fun Floracraft® theme was Outdoor decorating…with



I came up with this succulent holder…that doubles as a party treat holder! succulent planter made with foam!

Ice cream cone holder for party

to make: I found a cup that was small enough and just traced circles.

circles out of foam


and used a Sytrocutter® plus to cut out the circles (it actually melts it! so fun!) styrocutter double check size — check size Then cut sides — cut sides I used the knife for this part–It’s so great to cut straight lines! cut foam with knife Here are the pieces I used (I didn’t put a bottom on it because if I was going to put treat in it I didn’t want them stuck inside! sytrofoam pieces

Then cover with smooth finish! It’s the best! Fills in all the holes and it’s so light! smooth finish

I attached the sides with styroglue® and connectors

glue and connectors Then Paint. I think this would be super cute a funky color–a bright teal. Paint it gray to look like concrete or brown like wood!

Then for an industrial look I added these corner brackets I found at Home Depot! corner
