Cultural Center class turns styrofoam to a planter
By Rapids City Times staff
RAPIDS — With the right tools and acrylic paints, you can create something that looks so much like the real thing, you will be amazed.
Artist Denise Larson will show you how to repurpose a styrofoam cooler to look like a beautiful cement planter. Coolers/planters measure approximately 14″ x 12″ and are durable for planting yet lightweight enough for moving around your garden, yard, or patio. The styrofoam acts as insulation for roots over the winter and helps keep plants moist during the hot summer.
The class will be held May 30, with two two available times — 12:30-2:30 p.m. and 5:30-7:30 p.m. For more information or to register, call 715-421-4598 or stop at Central Wisconsin Cultural Center, 320 W Grand Ave, Suite 104, Wisconsin Rapids.
