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.
