Supplies Used to Make Rustic Table Decor Number Holders:
  • Walnut Hollow Rustic Bin
  • Plaid Finishes: Barnwood Texture Finish Pastes
  • Floral Foam
  • Faux Succulents
  • Lace scraps or doilies
Step one:  Paint the wood with the dark Barnwood texture paint.  This darker color provides the base for creating the faux finish.  Let the paint dry completely before moving on to the next step.
Step two:  Brush the lighter paint over the wood.  Use a damp cloth to wipe back some of the paint.  Work on one section at a time, painting and then wiping the wood, to create the faux finish desired.
Step three:  Set a block of floral foam inside the box, and cover the foam with a vintage doily or bits of scrap lace.  I have a box of lace and doily pieces that I collect from flea markets and garage sales…they are perfect for adding a delicate touch to projects like this one!
Step four:  Press the stems of the faux succulents into the floral foam.  Arrange the lace and the plants as desired.
All that’s left to do is to add the table number to the center of the arrangement.  These pretty succulent planters make great table decor!
