Light Shade Planter

Scrap wood

Scrap wood

This is a simple project that I’ve been wanting to do since I had these light shades I couldn’t use.  I saw this project in Lowe’screative ideas magazine and decided to give it a try.  I found a piece of scrap wood and had holes drilled in and gave it a simple stain coat.

Light shades


I added some coffee filters into the shades, and place pebble stones inside to hold the water.  I used snake plants and a succulent because they require little water.

Plants of choice

This is the finished product.  I did have three of the same, but unfortunately one broke so I had to use an alternative one, which wasn’t so bad.  But I’ll keep my eyes on the lookout for another one.  I decide on a place to put my  latest project.  Hope you like it .
