PVC Pipe Planter

Jessica Holoka
by Jessica Holoka
A visit to Hobby Lobby last year had me thinking "I can make that" after coming across a planter made to look like PVC drain and fittings. And so I did!
I snapped a pic of the planter for reference and then went to Home Depot.
I took my work out on the deck and set my pieces out. With my trusty E6000 glue, I glued each piece together and set it out to dry.
The weight of the soil and plants allows this planter to keep upright. It also helped to set it into the rocks in my backyard. After everything, PVC and plants, this project probably cost me just as much as buying the planter in Hobby Lobby. But where’s the fun in that???
