Dreaming Tree is one of my favorite places to look for paper crafts. They always seem to have something I love and just have to make. Last year I picked up their Artichoke Planter and decided to add them to my fall tablescape this year.
I’ve used papers to match the Autumn Lantern from Dreaming Tree that I made last year.

Additionaly you will need a small block of floral foam, a Styr0foam egg that is 3 7/8″ by 5 7/8″ and a wooden skewer stick.
Now here is a look at my finished vase that holds the Artichoke. On the gold pieces I’ve used Ranger Vintage Photo distressing ink around the edges. I’ll be adding a few extras to the vase soon.
NOTE: I added a piece of black medium chipboard to the very bottom of the vase to make it a bit more sturdy.
Here’s a video showing you how to make your own Artichoke Planter
And here is a look at my own Artichoke Planter . . . you can see where I’ve embellished the vase and also tipped the Artichoke pieces in a purple ink.
I think this might be a bit large for two on the table so they may be moved to the mantle and I might make two smaller ones for the table. Give it a try and make some for yourself!
