DIY Vertical Planter with Fence Slats and Terra Cotta Pots
This fun vertical planter is made with cedar fencing and terra cotta pots. It’s the perfect way to grow herbs or flowers in a small space or to add height to your porch decor. Free building plans.
I wanted to add some height to the decor on my back patio, so I asked my husband to help me build a vertical herb garden. This is the design we came up with. I love the mix of the raw, natural cedar with the colorful terra cotta pots. It has held up really well over the summer and I just love my vertical planter! Want to make one too? Here are the full instructions.
These markers were the perfect fit for this project because they are oil-based, which means they hold up to sun, water and abrasion. Perfect for decorating terra cotta pots! They work on wood, metal, plastic, stone, glass, pottery, rubber and more, so I’ll be using them a lot in the future. They also dry quickly, which I love because I’m impatient. And the best part is that right now all Sharpie Paint Markers are buy one get one 50% off (June 5th – June 11th). Bam!
Isn’t that little bit of detail so cute?! Here are close-ups of the three different pots:
I am so happy with how my little planter turned out. In fact, I love it so much that I want to make another one that’s three times as wide. That’s the great thing about this project… you can customize the measurements to fit any space!
I can’t wait to eat fresh herbs all summer and to hang out on the deck sipping lemonade watching the kids play while my husband grills.
