Window Planter DIY
Take an old window and break out the glass. Paint and sand after to make it look aged. Use a staple gun to attach chicken wire to the back and screw in a heavy duty picture hanging hardware (hold at least 20lbs). Cut ceiling trim to make box planter and glue & screw to the bottom of window. Or screw in a pre-made metal planter from you local outdoor store. You can add designs and details to make it one-of-a-kind. Plant climbing roses, succulents between the chicken wire (make sure you place a backdrop cloth if you do this), morning glories, or just leave it as cute cottage decor!
I took a couple plastic playing cards (the extras you don’t need) & cut out shapes for the markers. I painted them an eggshell color (outdoor paint) & glued two back to back for strength. I used a sharpie to write the names and dressed up the sharp corners using a corner stamper from a craft store. Super easy and really cute! I would recommend removing them when you water, however.
This is so easy to make! Purchase a natural grapevine wreath from a craft store- mine was about $4. Black and silver ribbon ($4), Chinese lantern spray faux floral (about $7- seasonal), beaded glass floral vine (also about $7- seasonal) and some green floral wire ($3). Use a coupon to get these items even cheaper. Cut the lantern spray into several branches and spread them out around the wreath. Attach stems with floral wire. Uncoil beaded vine, arrange, and attach with floral wire. Finally, tie ribbon into a bow and leave a little slack in case you want to use it to hang. That’s it! Simple, beautiful and much cheaper than buying a pre-made wreath for the fall and Halloween season!
