DIY Outdoor Plant Holder

Learn how to create a beautiful outdoor plant holder as a centerpiece to your outdoor dinning table, or as decor on your deck!

This easy little project will elevate your outdoor space and add charm.

I wanted a way to frame all my stunning planters with their gorgeous marbling. And really, what better way to compliment stylish planters than to create a holder? It makes it easier to move them about, and looks great grouped together as a featured centerpiece!

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!

    This is beautiful! If I build one I think I’ll add handles to the ends so I can move it around easily.
