I love crafting and it had been a while since I have made anything.
I saw on Pinterest how to make tile planter boxes and I knew this was the project for me.
A quick trip to Lowes only to find out there were no 6-inch tiles and they did not have many pattern tiles that were 12-inch. I bought what they had to make 4 planters. Each planter takes 5 pieces and if you do it the exact size there are no cuts to make.
I have issues using the caulking gun so I got Jack to do that part for me.
I did find later on the internet they make squeeze tubes of construction adhesive and I can do that when I run out of what I have.
You do need to wipe off the construction adhesive on the edges then after 24 hours of drying time you can paint the edges to match your planter. Some of mine turned out neater than others but now I know next time to wipe off early.
I have about $5.00 in each planter so this is a very cost-effective project. One day this week I will get to Floor and Decor for a bigger variety and cheaper options so I can make more. I want some bright-colored tiles with the Morrocan flare.
When it comes to the bottom tile you will find there will be a few gaps you can seal some of it off in the inside of the box with the adhesive but leave some for drainage then you do not have to drill holes. My planters were for outdoors and I planted some of my overabundance of Aloe Vera.
I loved this project and can not wait to make more. I want some tiny succulent planters and some large rectangle planters. You could even make some tall skinny planters with the rectangle tiles.
Be creative its good for the mind and the soul.
Those are really cute!!
I love them thank you. I really want some talavera tiles to do some with. I am going tomorrow to the tile store lol.
Great idea! Must try it….
Thank you. It was easy, cheap and fun to do. I prefer the adhesive in the squeeze tube rather than the caulk gun.
These turned out so cute 😀 :Love them.
