24 Days of Christmas: How to Make a Farmhouse Wooden Planter Box

A few years ago, I had a little extra scrap wood and I created this. It was a very versatile piece and it was used for almost every holiday….and then I gave the thing away.

The only logical thing to do is build another one, right?

You can make yours any size you want, but to make yours the same size I did, you will need the following materials.

To make a planter box, you will need:

1 1X6 board, at 34 inches long

2 1X4 boards, at 36 inches long

2 1×4 boards cut at 6 inches long

Wood screws

Drill bits and drill

Screwdriver/ phillips drill head for power drill

Wood glue

Wood stain in your desired color. I chose Minwax Dark Walnut

I began by attaching my 36 inch 1X4s to the sides of the 1X6 board. This will create a box with open sides.

Then, simply attach the boards to the bottom of the box. Stain your box with the wood stain. I used two

And when your box is dried and completed, you can fill it with candles, pine cones and Christmas balls. You can use this box as a table centerpiece, on a mantle, or in a low window frame.

Go ahead and make yourself a wooden box centerpiece! They are very cheap and easy to make and you can use them for every holiday.
