How To Make An Address Porch Planter

Are you ready to dress up our porch for Spring yet? I love finally being able to get my house ready to welcome guests for the spring summer season. I love to greet friends and family with a pretty front porch and I’m so happy to share this years look with you. We made this cute DIY address planter box last year and I forgot to share the details with y’all. This is a quick and easy DIY and I love how you can switch it out seasonally. For more front porch inspiration you can visit this post Pretty Spring Porch Refresh Ideas. So let’s learn how to make this cutie…



I love that this project doesn’t take much to make. In fact, we used scrap-wood pieces we had lying around.

Supplies Needed:

  • House Numbers of your choice( I found ours at Home Depot)
  • (1) 2″x 12″ x24″
  • (2) 2″ x 6″ x 7 1/2″
  • Facing/front 1″ x 6″ x 11 1/4″
  • Bottom 1″ x 6 “x 11 1/4”
  • Wood screws
  • Wood glue


Step 1

Start with you taller back piece and attach the sides from behind with your wood screws.





Step 2

Next, add your bottom piece and drill holes to the bottom for drainage.




Step 3

Then, add the front piece making sure all the edges are lined up and squared off.



Step 4

Once the box is assembled, add the numbers in the arrangement you want. Be sure when selecting numbers that you have a size that fits and enough space to leave for the flowers or plants to grow and not hide the numbers. 



Step 5

Before adding the numbers, sand and stain the box or paint it. I used a wood glue or you can use gorilla glue to attach the numbers.



I used Dark walnut to stain the box however, it would be very pretty painted to match your house if desired. Once your box is dry add your numbers or name.



For hanging the box, we added eye hooks in the top and small hooks into the stone to hand the box and keep it secure. We used masonry drill bit and screws to attach into the stone.



I think it’s such a pretty addition to the porch and adds a unique touch to a plain address number. I love to change it our seasonally with plants and flowers. 





There are several options when finishing it to match your porch decor. To bring out more wood tones and create some warmth we used stain, but it would be very pretty painted as well.
