Fall is in full swing around these parts and I have been busy working on my porch and fixing it up for the autumn weather! Today I am sharing a fun little fall project with you that is just perfect for sprucing up those fall porches – wooden fall flower pots – and just perfect for adding in color!
All you need for this project is a 1x6x6 and a 1x4x6 – unless you want to make a few (like I did) and then you need a little more!
(4) 1×6 @ 5 1/2”
(1) 1×6 @ 7”
(2) 1×4 @ 5 1/2”
(2) 1×4 @ 8 1/4”
Use your miter box and cut your 1×6 into square pieces. A 1×6 is actually 3/4 x 5 1/2 so cut four (4) 5 1/2 pieces.
Glue and nail your pieces into a square.
Your piece for the bottom will be 7” long.
Cut, glue and Pin nail it on!
I stained the bottom of my box cherry and painted my border pieces using DecoArt Chalk Paint in Relic. When everything is dry, glue and pin your border pieces onto the box. I attached my 1” from the top.
Drill holes in the bottom so the water will drain. Also, I took a sponge sander to mine and roughed it up a bit – just to make it look a little more rustic!
Fill it with your favorite fall flowers and you are done!! I found my mums at Walmart for $5!
I love how simple the boxes are but how much personality it add to my porch. You could paint them any fall color or stain them any color too! I think a gray stain, orange paint and yellow/red mums would be darling too!

Have a great day!!
