Step 1. Drill Pocket Holes
Drill pocket holes in both ends of the 35-1/2″ wood base and slats. Two pocket holes in either end of the 2″x35-1/2″ slats, and three evenly spaced pocket holes in either end of the 7-1/2″x35-1/2″ wooden base.
Step 2. Attach The Sides
Attach the base to the sides via the pocket holes you just drilled. Make sure the pocket holes are facing down in relation to the sides of your planter.
Step 3. Screw On Slats
Now add the 2″ slats to the sides with pocket holes facing inward.
Step 4. Stain or Paint Planter
Stain or paint your brand new planter. Make sure you seal it so it will withstand the elements.
Step 5. Pot Flowers & Enjoy
You can certainly customize the holder to be any size you want. I designed this plant holder specifically to fit these 6″ marbled outdoor planters (Amazon affiliate link). Of course, any 6″ planters should work.
The holder can accommodate up to 6 planters, and spans the outdoor dining table quite nicely!
