This cute planter will be at home hung among your birdhouses and birdfeeders. To make it, you will need a 1X12X6’, a 1X4X4” and 3 inches of 1/4” dowel.
Cut the following:
Front and back 1X12X16”
Sides (2) 1X4X18.5”
Take the front and draw a forty-five degree angle on each side from the middle of the board to the edge.
Cut the triangles formed by the drawing off the front and the back so they match.
Pick the best of the two boards for the front. Go down three inches from the peak and cut a 1 1/2 inch hole for the front of the birdhouse. Go down one inch and drill a 1/4” hole for the dowel perch. Do not drill all the way through the board for the dowel hole.
Put the front and back on the bottom board.
Put the sides on the bottom board.
Put glue on the end of the dowel and insert it into the dowel hole.
Fill the planter with plants and hang it in your yard.
