Do a double take - this “stainless steel” planter is made from paper and a block of STYROFOAM™ brand foam. Add your choice of flowers, top with moss, and you’ve got a stylish and sophisticated floral arrangement.
Designed by The Dow Chemical Company
- STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam Blocks: 2-inch x 4-inch x 8-inch (4)
- Scrapbook Papers with Hammered Metal Finish: 12-inch x 12-inch sheets (4)
- Flowers of choice (we used): Silk Tulips (6 white, 4 light green)
- Reindeer Moss (1 bag)
- Floral Shears
- Floral Pins
- Low-Temp Glue Gun and Glue Sticks

Use floral pins and low-temp glue to glue together two foam blocks, forming a 4-inch x 4-inch x 8-inch base. Repeat with two remaining blocks of STYROFOAM brand foam.
Cut from scrapbook paper four 4-inch x 4-inch x 9-inch strips and four 4-inch x 4-inch squares. Use craft glue to adhere paper to front and back of foam block; fold ends of each paper strip around corners and adhere ends to sides. Glue 4-inch x 4-inch square on each side.
Use floral shears to trim the tulip stems to approximately 8-inches to 9-inches and insert them into the top of the base. Trim leaves and add between tulips to fill in. Use hot glue to secure the tulips.
Fill in top of planter with reindeer moss.
Use photo as a guide and follow manufacturer’s instructions for all products used.
