How to make a DIY upcycled Rainbow Palette Flower Garden Planter.
- 1 heat treated pallet
- Sand paper
- Acrylic paints in every color of the rainbow
- Acrylic varnish, optional
- Paint brushes
- Drop cloth
- Drill and drill bits
- Flat head screw driver
- Worm clamps (These are the round pieces that will wrap around your mason jars and be attached to the pallet. Available at your local hardware store. You can use 4” worm clamps for large mason jars and 3” worm clamps for small mason jars.)
- Zinc machine bolts and wing nuts
- Terra cotta flower pots
- Potting soil
How to make it
Step 1: Gather your materials together and sand your pallet to remove any pieces that will sliver.
Step 2: Paint your pallet with two coats of your favorite rainbow colors.
Step 3: Apply a layer of varnish to your project (optional).
Step 4: Plant your flowers in your terra cotta flower pots.
Step 5: Drill holes in each of your worm clamps. (Don't worry if your worm clamp gets slightly flattened when drilling. As soon as you tighten it around your flower pot it will re-shape into a circle.)
Step 6: Decide where you want your flower pots to hang and drill holes (the same size as your bolts) where you want each flower pot on your pallet.
Step 7: Insert bolts through the holes that you drilled in your worm clamps and then insert the bolt through the holes that you drilled into the pallet. Thread wing nuts onto the bolt in the back of the pallet and tighten.
Step 8: Using a flat head screwdriver tighten the worm clamp around your terra cotta flower pot.
