DIY Welcome Address Planter

This post is sponsored by JOANN…all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I have been so busy decorating and DIY-ing projects for the inside of my home I almost forgot about the the outside! I think the front entry is an area that can be easily forgotten…but I am here to tell you that it is a space that for sure makes a first impression. With the help from my local JOANN store, I was able to create a super fun and easy DIY Welcome Address Planter.


I was able to find some unfinished wood pieces and repurpose them to create a project that any beginner DIY enthusiast could tackle!

Here is what you are going to need to create your own:

Rectangular Wood Pallet

Wood Box

Medallion Stencil

Acrylic Craft Paint

Pouncers

Faux Greenery

Cricut Cutting Machine or Vinyl Letters or Number Stickers

You will also need some basic tools such as a screwdriver, sandpaper and woodfiller.

I started by removing the metal label frame from the Wood Box. Then I had to fill the screw holes and sand them smooth.

Next, I started painting the wood pallet with acrylic paint in a solid color for the back of the planter.

Once the wood pallet was dry, I used the medallion stencil to apply a decorative design to the planter.

I used a variety of sizes of the medallion design…once they were painted on and dry, I used a fine grit sandpaper to give the pattern a more worn in look.

Now that the back was painted, I moved on to the box. I painted this part solid white. Using wood glue, a few brad nails and a clamp, I attached the box to the front of the wood pallet.

I used my cricut to cut the word “welcome” in black vinyl to add to the front of my planter. You could put your house number, last name, or a different saying…this is your chance to personalize it! To hang this, I attached two D-rings to the back and then mounted it to my entry wall with some stucco screws.

I decided on faux greenery to fill my planter that way I can easily change them out for the season and not worry about waterproofing it too! Isn’t this such a fun DIY!???

I really LOVE the way the stenciling turned out…

What a fun project to make for someone as a housewarming gift!
