Are you looking for creative planter ideas to feature in your home or outdoor space this summer season? Turn our wooden boat shelf on its side to create a cool nautical planter! I was inspired by a rocky island beach for this piece, so I incorporated driftwood and accent stones into the design.
- Darice Natural Wood Boat Shelf
- Darice Cement Planters (3)
- Driftwood Pieces
- Polished River Rocks
- Darice White Decorative Sand
- Darice Artificial Succulents
- Recycled Styrofoam and Cardboard
Step 2. Paint the trim and upper interior of the boat with a different paint color. I used a color called “Caribbean” by Waverly Inspirations.
Step 3. Cut scrap pieces of styrofoam to fill the bottom of the boat. I know this looks odd now, but no one will see this! The cement planters and rocks are heavy, so we want to use a lightweight filler to take up the empty space in the large boat.
Step 8. Arrange succulents in each of the planters.
I’m going to place my decorative boat planter as an accent piece on an end table. This would look great on a coffee table, and could also be used as a table centerpiece. Have fun crafting and creating creative planter ideas for your home!
This wooden oar DIY wall decor would coordinate perfectly with your new nautical boat planter!
