DIY Address Planter Door Decor


I love the idea of an address planter – but the few I’ve seen have all been mounted on houses. I didn’t want to quite commit to mounting a planter on my house because 1.) We all know I can’t keep plants alive and it will end up looking sad and brown in a few days, and 2.) I am a compulsive decorator – constantly changing the way my house looks. Mounting something is just a tad too permanent for me!

I came up with the idea to instead make my planter 1.) With fake flowers! and 2.) Removable door decor!

I started with:
- A planter Box
- Faux Flowers and Succulents
- Adhesive House Numbers
- Twine
I picked up all my supplies from Afloral except for the twine and the Adhesive House Numbers (I picked them up at Home Depot - but I also found them on Amazon).

I began by peeling off the backs of the numbers and sticking them onto my planter box.

I knew I wanted it to be door decor, so I drilled a hole on both sides of the planter box (to make a place where I could attach the twine).

I tied the twine through each side of the planter box holes that I just made and knotted them. I also put a dab of hot glue on the knots to make sure it would stay tied.

I added in the faux flowers and succulents and hung it on my door!

All the plants I ordered from Afloral are made to be “outdoor plants”, so they are able to hold up through any weather (although I don’t expect them to get too wet since my door is tucked back under the roof).

This project was really SO simple and a perfect way to add unique decor to my door (does anyone else get bored with wreaths?)
Since I have a glass door, I ordered this hook from Amazon and attached it to the glass so I'm able to hang door decor. I've had the hook on my door for 2 years and so far, I love it!

    How does it not damage your glass door when having a bad windy day?

      They could also take it down for a bit. Also, some rocks in the bottom would weigh them down.

    Did you use any extra adhering material to mount the Gecko hook? Thanks!
