Our front yard is pretty small and has a lot of bushes in it, so I don’t have a ton of space to do a garden where it would get a lot of sunlight. So I looked up some ideas for small gardens and I found the idea to do a pallet garden! So cute and easy to do, so off I went to Lowe’s last week to get the supplies. We had a few pallets at our house already, and the smallest one we had turned out to be perfect.
Here’s what you’ll need for your very own pallet garden:
- Wood Pallet
- Terra Cotta Pots – I used two 4.5″ and four 6″ ones
- Hose clamps – I got the 6 pack of 4-1/6in up to 5in pack in the plumbing section of Lowe’s
- Paint (if you want to paint the pots)
I wanted to make my pots pop a bit more so I used Martha Stewart’s craft paint in different shades of blue and white. The paint says it’s weather resistant so let’s cross our fingers.
I also got these Martha Stewart foam pouncers to make dots on some of the pots. Love these!
So here is how I attached the hose clamps. I used wood screws and just drilled right through the clamps. They are the perfect to hold the pots.
Here is my little pallet garden in action! I planted some flowers, basil and oregano for now. I may add 2 more small pots to do a couple more herb plants.
I decided a few days later I wanted to paint the pallet white – it was looking a blah to me. The white instantly makes it pop now!
Next to come – painting our front porch railings, steps and the wood step we had re-done!
