Easy DIY Palette Window Boxes

These window boxes offer homeowners an affordable way to add value to their home’s landscape. These boxes require minimal cutting and best of all they can be created for a total cost of less than ten dollars.


  • Palette
  • Screwdriver
  • Drill
  • Woodscrews
  • Outdoor paint (I got mine from the dump’s paint recycling center)
  • Braces (I got mine from the dollar store)

Cut the bottom off a palette with a saw. Three cuts and this end came off easy. The result: a simple box.

Pry an additional board of the palette for the bottom of the window box.

Using a drill, screwdriver, and some wood screws attach the bottom piece onto the window box.

Attach the braces to the house underneath the window. I purchased these from the dollar store for a dollar each.

Paint or stain the window boxes with outdoor paint or stain.

Fill with soil and plant flowers.
