I had some extra boards left over from previous projects, and after seeing Shanty 2 Chic’s Planter Box Centerpiece, I got inspired to make a “chunkier” version of my own.
And then I saw this at my friend’s house & I just knew I had to include succulents in this project.
I cut my 2x4s in the following increments:
One 20″ long
Two 24″ long
Two 4″ wide (keeping the height 4″ tall)
After making sure all the cuts were just right, I drilled them together and stained with a “Dark Walnut Stain.”
To make sure the wood wouldn’t rot from watering the plants, I added a waterproof liner (trash bag) under the dirt.
After spacing out my succulents & making sure they felt at home, I used rocks collected from the ocean as a covering.
And it was done!
I LOVE how it turned out!
Hope you try it out for yourself! It’s such a super classy centerpiece.
