I’ve had the cutest DIY flower box sitting on my dining room table for over a year now. Every time I look at it I make a mental note to blog about the process. Well, the day has finally come. With Allen’s help, I’m going to show you how to make this quick and easy centerpiece for your table.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 6′ oak 1×4 (cut into 2- 24″ pieces and 2- 4″ pieces)
- 24″x5″ piece of luan (for bottom)
- wood stain
- wood glue
- sponge to apply the stain
- finishing nails
Cut your wood pieces to size. You’ll need two 24″ pieces for the sides and two 4″ pieces for the ends.
Place the small pieces between the two long pieces on each end to form your box.
Apply wood glue anywhere the wood joins (this will hold your sides in place when nailing the box together).
Clamp in place.
Secure the sides of the box to the ends using finishing nails.
Flip the box over and nail the leuon to the bottom to finish the box.
Stain the box by rubbing your stain on with a sponge.
I filled the bottom of my box with styrofoam and arranged flowers in the box to make a centerpiece on our dining room table.
The possibilities are endless, you could change it all seasonally or add festive holiday picks by pressing them into the styrofoam.
