    I’ve got another fabulous DIY from another amazingly talented gal today, this time from Rachael of Lace & Likes and Siren Floral Co. I’m obsessed with Rachael’s floral creations, and the DIY floral planter boxes she’s sharing today are perfect for wedding and home alike. Happy making!

    planter boxes aren’t as difficult to make as they’d seem. you just need a few simple tools//materials from home depot, and you can make your very own to use for herbs, house plants or a floral arrangement. i worked on these for an upcoming SIRENFLORALCO wedding this fall.

    what you’ll need:
    -hobby wood from home depot (in the lumber section)

    -wood glue

    -copper nails (3/4″)

    -hammer

    -willpower 🙂

    ask a strapping fellow at home depot to cut the longer pieces of hobby wood to the measurements of the box you are wanting to make. they come in a few sizes, 2 ft pieces, 4 ft pieces, etc. i made this box 2 ft long and about a foot wide. they’ll also cut the end pieces to size for you. especially if you bat your eyes at them and look helpless 🙂

    what to do:
    -first, you’re going to set the wood with the wood glue.
    -start with the base and side pieces and glue them to the bottom pieces. then leave them for a while until they’ve set.
    **be sure to wipe off any excess glue that leaks out of the connecting points of the wood pieces**
    -once all your wood pieces are set with the glue, go around and nail the nails into the connecting points about an inch and a half apart on each side and each end. or wherever you feel they connect well 🙂
    -then you’re done!

    if you want it to be a planter box, i would recommend doing a water proof stain on top//on the inside when you’re finished and drilling small holes into the base for the water to drain. if you’re going to use it for a wedding centerpiece, you wanna line it with plastic sheeting (also found at home depot) and use short nails or a staple gun to attach it to the inside.

    now go getchu rosie the riveter on 🙂

    •  Sleepless nights, sibling fights, tantrums and meltdowns and tears. But these are the days, going by in a haze, that I'll miss when I'm late in my years. #peptalkformyself #battlefieldmotherhood #sendacaffieneIVdrip #theadventuresofcharlieandcalvin  This week has been straight up ROUGH. Charlie has been home sick from camp, Quincy is sleeping his worst ever, Calvin had a toddler meltdown at the museum today the likes of which I have never seen, it is 9 million degrees, and I have so much work piling up I feel like I'm being swallowed up in quicksand. But today at the park Quincy took a mini nap in the stroller, the big boys played on their own without fighting or needing me to intervene for 10 whole minutes while I sat alone on a blanket. It was glorious. #battlefieldmotherhood #summer
       He's got me wrapped around one of those blurry little fingers and he knows it. It's the dimp that slays me.  #quincysweekbyweek #26weeks  Life with these boys is an adventure of mammoth proportions  (see what I did there #ivegotpuns) #theadventuresofcharlieandcalvin
