I am in FULL outdoor mode at the moment as I am sure many of you have noticed! My latest project?? This super cute Wall Planter! I made this bad boy in less than an hour and for under $20!
How fun is that??
This is a super simple project! Here is what you will need…
1 – 2x4x8 piece of pine wood
1 – 2x6x8 piece of pine wood
1- 1x3x6 piece of pine wood
Wood Glue and finish nails
2-3′ of rope
9 small clay pots
First start by making your cuts!
I made 2 cuts from the 2×4 piece at 34.5″ each.
Here is where I placed my pocket holes…
Now I added a small trim piece with my 1×3 using wood glue and finish nails. From the side it looks like this!
I have found a great way to fill pocket holes and other holes is using 3M Wood Filler !
And there you go!
Now for the fun part! After the paint dried I used a sander to distress the whole thing a bit.
Your final step is adding your rope! The rope likes to ravel a bit, so I wrapped my edges with painter’s tape like this…
That’s it! I hung mine using a cute metal garden hook. I used a masonry bit to drill a hole in the brick and used a masonry screw to hold the hook in place.
I filled each of my cute little pots with some Vinca vine and I was set!
Here are a few more shots!
Isn’t that super fun!? It filled a blank space I had on the back of my house perfectly!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I would LOVE for you to pin and share my planter with your peeps! Happy building!
