I fell in love with these planter boxes I found at the Target Dollar Spot for $3/each. I knew they had to come home with me!
I thought they would be the perfect addition to my front porch!
If you can’t find these exact planters, they could easily be hand made (which is what drew me to them!) Just nail together a few pieces of pallet wood (which you might be able to score for free if you’re lucky!)
I grabbed a couple of different artificial succulent stems like these (around $3/each):
When I got home (ok…it was actually about a week later) I was ready to assemble the planters.
To save a few bucks and use less of the pebbles, I used some packaging paper I had sitting around and scrunched it up to put in the base of the planter. You could use newspaper as well. My scrunched up paper came just below the surface of the planter.
Next, I gently poured some of the pebbles in the planter over the scrunched paper. I made sure none of the paper showed.
Next was the fun part! I finally got to add the plants! I chose 2 plants for each planter and just tucked the stem into the rocks.
Done! Easy peasy!
I love how it turned out!
However, I decided that the planter itself would probably be safe from the wind on my front porch but not the plants since they were just gently placed into the rocks.
I didn’t want to risk it so I found the perfect place inside…on the window sills in our Living Room.
Don’t they look cute???
