Today I'm going to share with you a quick and easy DIY planter from upcycled cake lid using humble Dollar Tree items. It's appropriate for fall, harvest, or any season. This would also be a great addition to a farmhouse home décor aesthetic.

Here is the video link for the full tutorial.

This is the upcycled planter we are going to make!


Cleaning the plastic cake lid

1. Clean

First, I cleaned one of the plastic cake lids, which is sturdy and strong.


Plastic champagne glasses from Dollar Tree

These champagne glasses are from Dollar Tree. They will act as a pedestal.

White acrylic paint

2. Paint

Next, I took some Crafter's Square white acrylic paint from Dollar Tree and painted a couple of coats on both the cake lid and champagne glass.

Gluing twine to the scallop details

3. Add twine

After the paint dried, I took jute twine and stuck it on the scallops of the cake lid using hot glue.

Braiding jute twine

Also, I braided the jute twine and stuck the braided jute to the base and top of the cake lid using hot glue.

Twisting the jute around the base stem

I also twisted the jute around the stem of the champagne and burlap ribbon around the lip of the champagne glass.
