Step 1:

Using a pair of scissors, cut the curve edges of the foam plates. Once done, using the ruler and exacto knife, cut rectangular pieces of the same size. Size depends on your preference, and the quantity will depend on the size of your plastic bucket.

Step 2:

Once done, cut the rim of the plastic bucket and glue the rectangular foam plates one-by-one onto the bucket with a glue gun. Make sure to leave spaces in between each piece. When making the next layer, align the middle of the rectangular piece with the space between the 2 pieces on the first layer. Do the same for the remaining layers.

Step 3:

Using a brush and black paint, color the whole bottom of the bucket, the spaces between each rectangular foam, and the sides of each foam.

Step 4:

Mix the black, brown, and black paint to create an old brick effect to the bricks. Paint each rectangular strip and the 3 small thick plastic cups. Let them dry.

Step 5:

Get the artificial moss and glue them in-between the spaces of the bricks using a glue gun. Once done, put some glue on the 3 plastic cups and stick them to the bottom of the planter.
