American Flag Pallet Planter

This was an easy build that makes a great summer gift.

I began by building a box using wood cut from a found pallet. 

I added cabinet handles at each end.

I painted the outside of the box white then using masking tape blocked off areas for the stripes and a star. 

I found a great stencil by Knick of Time that is perfect for stenciling perfect stars on everything!!

I lined the box with plastic, filled it with soil and planted red impatience plants in the box.

When the flowers grow they should beautifully cascade over the edge of the box.
