Here’s another easy project that will bring more colour and life to your home! All you have to do is build it in one day, wait around five months and you’ll have an eye-catching feature in your yard!
This DIY project is a simple pallet planter box with 2-inch holes drilled on the panels for flowers to cascade from.
It’s a really easy pallet project that anybody can build. You don’t even have to worry about making the planter look very pretty. When your flowers have fully grown, the entire flower box would be unseen and all you will see is a seemingly explosion of colours. ;)
The flowers used here were Wave Petunias. But you can also include other cascading flowers and even regular ones.
As for the pallets, of course we wouldn’t want to use a toxic one. If you do not know how to distinguish safe from toxic pallets, then check this article to guide you.
Now if you don’t have any access to old pallets or you are unsure about the pallet that you are about to get, you can use pine or cedar timber instead. :)
This flower box is not just an easy project you can do for your yard, it is also a great DIY gift idea you can make for your friends and family!
