Making a Splash

House number planter



Keep seeing these online and have always wanted one.
Found some old wood from a playhouse and an old flower bed, so decided to make one. 

By using faux plants (from Bunnings) it meant I didn’t have to create a soil bed, making the whole thing super easy to make! 

First I started by gluing together these panels to make a backing plate…




After removing excess glue with a chisel, I  glued two piece of old hardwood to the front and drilled holes into the top to hold the faux plants. 


Added our door number to top and ta-dah!

Re: House Number Planter

That is super cool, @craftyhopper! I love the simplicity of your design and how impactful the results are.


I trust many of our members new to woodworking could try this as their first project.


Many thanks for sharing. Really inspiring work.
