Anthropologie's Blocked planters were so popular that they sold out. Not to be discouraged by a lack of access, Kate of Design*Sponge set out to make them herself. Much like the Jonathan Adler inspired vases, all it takes are re-imagined scrap materials and a little time, to make these planter doppelgängers.
The original Blocked Planter from Anthropologie (shown above) features beautiful glazed ceramic dotted with rectangular blocks that give it a little quirk and texture. Kate simply rooted around her house and craft store for shapes and materials that she thought could take on an interesting texture and easily pass as glazed ceramic once painted. She used cut balsa wood, trimmed down wine corks, and glass beads which were epoxied and painted on plain planters for three very different textures.
