Take the two whiskey barrel planters and stack them on top of each other, cut edges together. Make sure the edges line up. Tie a burlap bow around the barrel to hide the cut line as seen in the fabulous photo below by Randi Davies Photography; This will give the illusion of a full whiskey barrel at a fraction of the price.

If you want to make a whiskey barrel table for your rustic desserts to be displayed on just leave off the bow, and lay a raw edged board over the top of your DIY barrels. TIP: Not all planters will line up with each other, so try them out before you buy to make sure the edges fit together.
