Glue the board on to the cinder block with gorilla glue. Then drill around 5 holes on each side so water can drain out.

Get some dirt and put it in your new pot.then plant any plant you want in your new flowerpot!
The reason the planter only has one flower is because I left on vacation the day I built this
