For the gardeners and carpenters, here is an interesting DIY project. This is a planter box with holes to allow flowers to poke out of instead of growing out on top. It’s a twist to the pallet decoration outside the home. To build it, get the following cuts: 4 pieces of 2″ x 4″ x 40″ (for the legs), 2 pieces of 2″ x 2″ x 15″ (as support on the bottom), 4 pieces of 1″ x 4″ x 36″ (a section of the bottom), 1 piece of 1″ x 1 1/2″ x 36” (another piece of the bottom), and pallet slats that measure 40 inches and 16 inches.
First, mark at 20 inches starting from the top of the legs and connect the 2×2 piece with 2 1/2″ screws. Do the same with the other pair of legs and screw the bottom sections to the supporting legs. Screw in the 40-inch pallets to the front and the 16-inch pallets to the sides with 1 ¼’ screws. Get a 2-inch hole-saw and make holes for the flowers,spacing them six inches apart.
Next, come the flowers and the potting mix to fill the box with. Give a layer of weed guard on the bottom before sticking in the flowers. Go one row at a time, putting the flowers through the holes before covering them with soil. Of course, water the soil while going along and do so every day while watching the flowers blossom.
