How to make a letter planter

Letter Planter

Want to give your front porch a new look? This DIY letter planter idea would surely give it a more cheerful and fresh look!

Transform your front door area from a rather dull look to a bright and happy one with this DIY letter planter. It’s easy to build and different from the usual planter that you see in homes. It’s no wonder it got so much attention when the owner-builder shared it on Instagram!

This letter planter is huge, measuring 4 ft x 4.5 ft and 5 inches deep. It can hold plenty of flowers or succulents. As the plants grew and started flowering, the better they looked!

It’s a great outdoor decor project to do, especially as fall season nears. You can add mini pumpkins and other Halloween decors to it! You can change the theme of your decor according to the season.
