Beautiful Indoor Plants And A Centerpiece Idea

Easy DIY Planter Box. Adding Greenery To Your Home.

Yes…i’ve made it so far! I have kept these plants alive for almost 3 months! That’s a record for me! Our florist was right. These 2 plants, whose names i do not remember, are real survivors! But they are not worth of a plain plastic pot. So, i made for them a beautiful box.  Our green centerpiece idea really made a difference!

Easy DIY Planter Box

We bought the plants in a simple plastic pot which i painted white at first but it looked terrible! It was not the easiest thing to paint or decorate it, because of the plants. And i thought i should try making a box for them. Here’s the super easy how to and what you’ll need for creating this centerpiece idea for your home :

Measure the perimeter of the pot and cut the cardboard at your desired dimensions. The length should be a bit longer than the perimeter and the height as much as you like, but taller than the popsicle sticks. Start gluing the popsicle sticks on the cardboard. I used white glue for this one. Glue them a bit higher than the cardboard, so that no cardboard is visible among them. Like that:

How To Make An Easy, Inexpensive Planter Box

 Leave a small part at the end of the cardboard with gluing the wooden pieces. That’s why i mentioned to cut the cardboard a bit longer than the perimeter of your planter.  Place it around the planter and close it. Glue the blank part at the inside of the other end and take a break.

Tongue pressor craft idea: DIY a planter box

 Get your hot glue gun and the sisal rope. Ready? Start applying the glue and wrapping the rope. Make as many rounds as you like. Needless to say that once you are happy with the result cut the rope, secure the end and have a glass of wine!

    That’s SO clever, a screen for the not so pretty plant pot. I love that it would work for any size pot.

      I tried to keep the box neutral. There is plenty of color with the plants there.

    Now,this is really nice looking. The natural wood color and natural green make such a fresh statement. Green plants fit in anywhere don’t they? This is lovely zozo!

      Hi Niki! That small touch of green made our home so different! I wanted to paint the popsicle sticks, but after seeing it complete i changed my mind!

    What a fun DIY idea! I’ve always loved plants in the home but not only do I have a very non-green thumb, but we have two kittens who love to eat leafy greens… I may have to give it a try, anyway!

    Zografia really great upcycle! It looks so pretty and rustic with the twine. And as for those plants, well I have the same problem, if they are not super strong they do not last in my house..lol

      I’ll ask my florist to remind the name of the plants and i’ll e-mail you. All i know is that they require almost no water and not much light!
