Boxed In

There’s something particular satisfying about building something with your own two hands, so it’s really no wonder that DIY projects have really been booming. Even if you don’t consider yourself to be a very crafty person, you can most definitely jump in on this trend. The good people of the internet have made it easier than ever to learn how to make things at home so you can save money, be creative, and create something truly unique and personal. Amy from Her Tool Belt is one of these good people, and if you like gardening, you’re definitely going to love this stunner of a project!

Amy made her very own DIY Cascading Flower Pallet Planter Box, and she’s taken us all along for the ride. It certainly looks a bit strange at the start but the end result is simply stunning!

Get a regular planter box (the one in this photo is made from pallet wood) and drill holes in even spaced rows.

“I used a 2″ hole saw to drill holes for the petunias … spacing the holes about every 6″ or so.”

Now let’s get to planting flowers!

Plant the first row of flowers and then cover them with soil.

Use packing peanuts as filler in the back of the planter.


The holes let the soil get dry easily so make sure to water the flowers every day. Fertilizing once a week will also really help!
