Ready for Spring! Simple DIY Flower Box

Hey everyone! It’s been a little quiet around here this week. I have been pretty busy with ‘life’ and then on Thursday, we had a ‘brown out’ because of thunder storms and later that night our modem went out, so no wifi! Uggg! It’s so frustrating. Not sure how we ever survived! Lol. It’s back on now, so we are good to go!

Today I have a simple flower box idea for spring. I found this box in my stash when I was unpacking. I believe I bought it at a thrift store, but I know they have similar ones at the craft stores. I also bought some styrofoam and flowers at the Dollar Tree. If you click on the Dollar Tree ad on the sidebar, Home on the Corner get a little compensation, but you spend no extra! I bought the rope awhile back for another project that never got done, so now I could use it for this!

I did give the box a light coat of white paint, so its just barely there. I decided I wanted the rope around the bottom to give it a little more texture. If it was around the top, it wouldn’t show because of the flowers. I like the little added touch of farmhouse or coastal the rope gives it. I added a line of hot glue and then placed the rope on top, gluing a little at a time. I ended up doing 3 rows.

I placed the styrofoam in the bottom of the box and used a little glue to keep it in place.

Lastly was the flowers. I didn’t have any moss, but it would probably be better to add it first, just to cover the styrofoam. I pushed some of the leaves towards the bottom of the stems to help cover it up. I placed the taller flowers first and then filled in around it.

I only used 6 stems, 2 of each kind. It’s just the perfect touch to add to my front porch!

My hall bathroom is complete, so hopefully I can get some pictures done and get it posted! Hope you all have a wonderful week!
