Every plant needs a planter to spread its roots in, and this original and easy planter with a stand will cost just $30! Prepare a 12” terra cotta planter, (6) 1”square wooden dowels that are 36” long, wood glue, a nailer or screws, a wood filler. Start by cutting (12) 13” pieces. If you are making this with a different size planter, measure the top (ours was 12”) and add 1”. This will give you a hole that is 11” (because each wood piece is 1” wide). To assemble them put a small amount of glue on the end of one piece. Then attach it with your nailer or a screw. Read the following steps in the source.
