So far, you’ve done everything you could for your garden, and you love the results. The flowers are in full bloom, the vegetables are starting to sprout, and you can’t help but feel proud. All your hard work has finally paid off.
But wait, this doesn’t mean the end of it, right? Of course, gardening never ends, unless you shut down your garden for good. There’s always something to do, something to keep you busy and occupied.
While you’re waiting to harvest your crops, you can engage in a worthwhile DIY project like this barrel planter in the photo above.
To make this interesting garden piece, you’ll need a half wine barrel, 2 strips of wood that measure ½” x 6” x 26”, 7 strips of wood that measure ½” x 4” x 10–12”, a jig saw, a compound miter saw, power screwdriver and drill bit for holes, a measuring tape, some wood screws, and if you like, twine.
The post below gives you a step-by-step tutorial on how to make this complicated looking planter. The tutorial comes with photos so that even a novice DIY’er won’t have so much of a hard time accomplishing this. And don’t think that just because it looks complicated, it’s something you can’t do. It’s actually simpler than it looks. You’d only find out when you start with it.
What are you waiting for? Take on this project, and you’ll love this addition to your garden!
