Hey guys!

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!

Wall Planter

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

Spray Paint

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.

Next cut your 2×5 into 3 pieces that will each measure 14″ long.

I attached mine using my Kreg Jig and pocket hole screws, but you can also use wood screws from the outside and fill with wood putty.

Here is where I placed my pocket holes…

I attached them to my side boards. Each one is 13.5″ apart.

Now I added a small trim piece with my 1×3 using wood glue and finish nails. From the side it looks like this!

Next I used my drill to place a 3/8″ hole in the top of each side piece…

I have found a great way to fill pocket holes and other holes is using 3M Wood Filler !

Just squeeze some out into each hole…

Wood Putty
Use a scraper to even it out!

And there you go!

After the putty dried I gave the whole thing a coat of black spray paint!

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…

Then, just pull it off after you tie your knots!

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!
