Strawberry Planter

Make a strawberry planter out of excess materials around the house. I used a bucket, some left over 1 1/2" pvc pipe, some small chain, and some silicon caulking. First, cut the pvc pipe in alternating 45 degree miters(as shown in the pic). Then, place the pieces on the bucket and mark. After that, use a drill to start the hole and finish cutting out the holes using a jig saw and secure the pvc pieces in the holes in the bucket using the silicon caulking. Then attach the chain to the top of the bucket for hanging, if you're not hanging your planter, no need to attach chains. When all of that is done, make sure you drill some drain holes in the bottom of the bucket. Then, all that's left to do is plant!

    About how many plants can it hold

    Very clever idea! You can spray paint the planter to make it really attractive.
