Shutter Planter With Succulants

I made this using a window shutter that I primered and painted sage green. I then mounted 4 metal hose clamps and placed mason canning jars in the clamps and tightened them down. I filled the jars with a mix of potting soil and fish meal pellets and added a finniale to the top center and hung a small twig wreath covered in grass moss and hung with a ribbon...I hung the planter shutter on the front of my green house and love the personality it brings to the greenhouse..easy easy to construct

    I like it! The shutter planter is cute. Is it made of wood? I would like to see the rest of the Greenhouse!
