Hello my loves! So I have a confession. My house is turning into a jungle. I am turning into this crazy plant lady. Its not like I have a green thumb or anything, I just keep buying plants that I love at Home Depot (since I am there 294 times a day ala The Nugget.)
I just cant believe what a huge difference a live plant makes in a space. If a room in your house is feeling a little ho hum, get your cute butt a plant. They are a really great inexpensive way to liven things up (literally!)
Every plant needs a planter to spread its roots in. This is something that we all agree on, but finding one (and one that wont cost you your left trunk) is quite a different story. Until today. This Openwork Cube Planter comes in just under $30 and is the easiest thing to build!
You will need:
(1) 12” Terra Cotta Planter
(6) 1”Square Wooden Dowels that are 36” long (standard length from HD)
Nailer or Screws
Wood Filler (optional)
Start by cutting (12) 13” pieces. If you are making this with a different size planter, measure the top (ours was 12”) and add 1”. This will give you a hole that is 11” (because each wood piece is 1” wide) If you don’t have access to a saw, you can have these pieces cut for you at Home Depot.
To assemble them put a small amount of glue on the end of one piece.
Then attach it with your nailer or a screw.
Wipe the excess glue off and move to the next corner.
You will make 2 squares.
Glue and nail the other 4 pieces onto the squares you just made.
Fill in nail holes with wood putty.
Let it dry for 24 hours before placing your potted plant in it.
Picture how cute this would be on a smaller scale with glass fishbowls or small pots on a book shelf or running down the center of your table!
