Watermelon Slice Planter DIY





(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || ()).push({});
I'm pretty obsessed with plants and my collection is constantly growing (I can't walk by a rack of plants for sale without taking a peek). I wanted to make a fun planter that screams "summer!" Nothing says summer like a big slice of watermelon! This Watermelon Slice Planter is easy to make with some basic tools.

I found these large, pine project rounds in the hobby section of Lowe's for under $5. On the interior of the planter is a base with 2 sides that holds a flower pot. I'm really happy with the way this turned out! I think it adds instant charm to any porch. Plus, since they're so inexpensive to make you could made a variety- like orange, lime or lemon slices.

Supplies:
Project round
Acrylic paint & paintbrush
Scrap wood
2 1/2 inch interior screws

Cut the project round in half directly down the middle. Trim off about 1 inch on each end so the bottom of the planter will sit flat.
Cut your scrap wood into 3 6x6 sections. These will make the base and 2 sides that are sit in between the watermelon slices.
Screw the 2 sides of the scrap wood to the base.
Screw through the outside of the slice to attach the plant stand. Screw both sides to each slice.
Paint each side of the planter and don't forget the top and sides of the plant stand.
Paint the "seeds" on using a fine tipped paintbrush.
