One of my favorite ways to waste pass time is to wander around at the craft store and brainstorm ideas of things I can make.

When I saw these unfinished wood geometric candle holders on my last visit, I knew I had to get them for a craft.

I added a little faux finish, metallic craft paint, and a fake succulent, and now they are the cutest little planters/paperweights, and I love them! Here is how I made these succulent planters . . .
