DIY Projects Kitchen


Calling all DIYers! It’s time to make this simple, budget-friendly planter piece. When I say simple, I mean really simple. Read on!

The materials for this project was found at my local dollar tree store. I was super excited to find this galvanized planter, and the hydrangeas are not easy to come by either at the dollar store. So I was super stoked complete this project!

You will need:

* Flowers/ or greenery of your choice ( I used green hydrangea stems) – I bought four stems

* A galvanized aluminum planter

*Round Floral foam (optional) Get one if you plan to move the planter around a lot.

* $5 plus tax (I browsed around on Etsy and found that this complete planter piece could easily cost anywhere from $20 – $45)

What you should do:

Step 1: Cut flower stems according to the height of the planter (I have a floral stem scissors on hand already. If you don’t, bend the back and forth a few times to cut the plastic covering and wire insert)

Step 2: Place floral foam inside the planter (skip to step 3 if you do not have floral foam)

Step 3: Insert cut stemmed flowers into the foam and rearrange to your liking.

Note: You can add a dab of glue to the bottom of your planter to help the foam stay in place before inserting the flowers.
