Make dimensional wall art with a touch of green. A store-bought shadow box with a DIY removable planter is a great addition to a gallery wall and fills up a small blank space. This shadow box wall planter is easy to make and creates the perfect combination of streamlined and natural elements.
Use painters tape and scrap paper to mask off the interior of the shadow box. Spray-paint the exterior of the shadow box, using light and even strokes. Let dry according to manufacturer's instructions.
Using the craft board, build a box to fit inside the house. Glue the sides together with wood glue, then clamp the box together to dry. Let dry according to manufacturer's instructions.
Apply two coats of poly to the box. Make sure to get all sides of interior and exterior. Let dry completely, lightly sanding between coats.
Line the box with a plastic bag or plastic sheeting. Don't cut to size until soil and plants have been added so that you're sure the plastic will be big enough. Add plants and trim bag to fit into box (without showing).
