Before I say anything else I have to confess that I think I may be slowly turning into a crazy plant lady! This is super ironic for me considering I’m not the best at keeping the dang things alive! This is probably why I’ve especially been into succulents…because I have a way higher chance at keeping them alive! Yay! For keeping things alive!😜😄👌
That being said, every project I’ve been wanting to make has to do with plants. Including this hexagon planter box that I made using scrap wood leftover from my built in barbeque that my father-in-law and I just finished! Yes, that was a project that had nothing to do with plants, BUT there is a spot above the barbeque on our wall that I want to make a hanging wall planter for so stay tuned for that if you are also a crazy plant lady like me!
If you are, then let’s get to making this DIY hexagon planter box though! This is a super simple, super cheap, super cute way to display your succulents, flowers, or whatever you want to put in there. I’m even going to show you how to make the hexagons into shelves if that’s more your thing.
Let’s get started! Here is what you’ll need:
- Wood of any size, but make sure all the pieces you use are the same size. I used my scrap 2×4’s, but plan to make more with all different sizes.
- Some sort of wood for the bottom(if you’re making the planter version). I used scrap OSB, or particle board, but you could use anything.
- Miter Saw tilted to 30 degrees for a beveled cut. (See picture below if you don’t know what that means. If you don’t, don’t worry! It’s not hard to do that!)
- Wood Glue
- Nail Gun (because that’s my favorite tool to use, you could use a lot of different things in order to put the pieces together.)
- Wood filler
- Jigsaw to cut out the hexagon shape on the OSB board. Again, for the shelves you won’t need this.
- I used white chalk paint, painter’s tape, and gold spray paint, and clear wax to finish it off.
Okay, now let’s get started!
Don’t worry that bottom part got covered up with spray paint!
Please tag me on Instagram @thedecormama if you make this so I can see your version! I love seeing what all you creative people come up with!
Thank you so much for coming and if you really are in the crazy lady plant club with me come back soon for more plant projects that I have in store for you!!! Yay!
