How to Make a DIY Mop String Planter
Hot glue your two wooden boxes together with the drawers removed. Then, remove the plastic piece that secures the mop strings together.
Wrap the mop strings around the two wooden boxes and hot glue them in place. Next, I hot glued Dollar Tree nautical rope around the top and bottom edges of the two boxes.
Hot glue the four Dollar Tree wood craft cubes on the bottom of the wood boxes to create the feet for this DIY mop string planter.
I chose to hot glue some half wood beads to the front of the planter. Then, I hot glued a mop string t to the short sides and put a napkin ring on each one to create “handles”.
Finally, put the floral foam on each side of the wooden boxes and push your floral/greenery stems into the foam!
