Pretty easy right? I am working on a curb appeal project so I can’t share the rest of this image below but as you can see, you just place the planter inside. You can even cut some holes in the bottom for drainage. My parents are away on a tour of the mid-west and I am hoping to get this front entry decorated before my mom gets home as a surprise. My dad won’t even notice but my momma will! 🙂
