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 pallet I found.

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

I used outdoor craft paint to paint the stripes and the blue field. 

You can either draw a star, stencil a star or add many stenciled stars. 

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

I lined the box with a plastic garbage bag. 

I filled the box with soil and planted red impatience plants in the box.

When the flowers grow they will beautifully cascade over the sides of the box.
