Cereal Box Planter Box Upcycle


I took a box out of the recycle bin and turned it into a rustic little planter for some spring flowers.

I cut my box in half and spray painted it black. I knew my sticks would have some spaces and I didn't want any colors or words to show through.

I glued....and glued....and got a splinter.....and glued....and got burned....and glued until finally 17 hours later I had this!

Okay, it was not 17 hours, but it really was 3 straight hours. Seems impossible, I know but go ahead and try for yourself. I really do like the twigs with the bright and cheerful flowers.
