HOW TO: make your own large wall art for CHEAP!



How to Make a Huge and Cheap Plant Container

Steps

  1. Buy one of these plastic containers that are used by many companies to transport liquids or sand.These things are made to be virtually indestructible to withstand the years of abuse getting hauled in and out of trucks.
    • Get them second hand. It's okay if the container has been used a lot. All scratched up and dented, which is fine because it saves money. Get one that has those little legs
  2. Drill holes in a grid-like pattern across the bottom.
    • This will allow for drainage.
  3. Cut a sheet of root cloth to the right size and duct tape it to the container.This will prevent the soil from falling out, and it will let water out of the bottom. The container has its own legs, so that will work great. You can use a knife to poke a few holes in that cloth, although that's probably not even necessary.
  4. Make the container pretty.You can buy cheap garden wood planks to make three panels. Simply saw the planks and screw them together from the backside using the right size screws that won't penetrate the front (rocket science it is not). Measure twice, cut once.
  5. Screw the panels together with angle brackets.You can nail some rubber rings (a thick variety of tap rings from the DIY store is the cheapest solution) under the planks so it is elevated a little bit from the floor, if desired.
  6. Take measures to avoid needing to use too much soil.If you are clever you can use styrofoam and fill up half the container in such a way that it still drains water, or build a false floor. This way the container will be much lighter. Alternatively, you can just fill it up with big bags of soil. More soil also means it retains more water, so that's a plus.
  7. Go to garden center and buy pretty plants from the bargain corner.You can also buy a roll border and bend it around an ugly pot or a big cement mixing bin (drill holes in bottom) from the DIY store for nice looking and cheap plant pots.
  8. Tend to your garden, and let it thrive.Here's how it might look, one year later!
