Wood Planter Box
Project designed by: KariAnne Wood
The planters in your garden may be showing signs of wear and tear after a rough winter, but there’s no need to spend a lot of time or money on new ones. You can create inexpensive, trendy planter boxes with a few pieces of wood and some Krazy Glue®. Let your arrangements soak up the sun or bring your box inside and fill it with artificial flowers for beautiful décor without the upkeep.
- Krazy Glue
- Three 8-foot lengths of 3/4" square trim
- Four feet of 1 x 2" pine wood boards
- Two feet of jute twine
- Cut lengths of trim for planter. You will need six 24" sections and six 9" sections.
- Cut boards for base. Cut two lengths of board 22 1/2" long.
- Start first level of planter. Lay the two pine boards as your base. Place two of the 9" sections perpendicular to the boards forming a rectangle. Leave approximately an inch overhang with the boards as shown. Use Krazy Glue to glue in place. Let dry.
- Continue with second layer. Place 2 of the 24" sections parallel to the base boards & perpendicular to the glued 9" sections. Leave approximately an inch overhang with the boards as shown. Use Krazy Glue to glue in place. Let dry.
- Repeat steps 3 and 4. Continue layering sections of molding. Use Krazy Glue to glue in place. Let dry.
- Wind jute twine. Wind the jute twine around the ends of the overhang. Use Krazy Glue to glue ends in place.
- Fill with metal bucket. Place metal or plastic buckets inside the planter and fill with fresh flowers.
