DIY Address Number Wall Planter


Supply List

1 – 5.5″ cedar fence picket

1 x 4 x 8 cedar board

Metal Address Numbers

Succulents (or plants of your choice but, come on, succulents!!!)


Using a small hand saw or a ridgid miter saw, cut your fence picket into 3 pieces that are each 18″ long.

Using a drill, add 3/4″ pocket holes on two of those 3 boards you just cut (see above photo)


Use a drill to attach the three boards using 1 1/4″ pocket hole screws through the pocket holes. Your boards will then look like the photo above. (the back of the boards are shown)


Next make your 1×4 cuts. This will be your planter.

I made 4 cuts…

1 – 10.5″

2 – 3.5″

1 – 12″

I added 3/4″ pocket holes to one side of the 10.5″ piece.

Use these pocket holes to attach the planter to the planked back. These will face up and will be covered by the plants. After adding those pocket holes, attach your two 3.5″ side pieces to the 10.5″ bottom piece using Gorilla wood glue and 1.25″ brad nails.

Your box should look like this so far.


The final step (of making the frame) is attaching the top 12″ board. Use a nailer with 1.25″ brad nails and wood glue to attach it.


Stain and sand (optional) then when dried, attach your metal numbers using a drill.


Add in your plants and attach to a wall with nails, duct mounting tape, etc!

And you're done!
