This shabby chic burlap planter idea is a wonderful (and frugal) addition to any front porch or patio. It is simple, extremely inexpensive and absolutely adorable! Using burlap, twine and an old bucket, you can make a farmhouse-feel planter in under 15 minutes!

Make sure your buckets are larger than your plant that you are potting. New buckets are not necessary as long as they are clean and free of any chemicals that may be harmful to your plant.
*Be sure to follow any specific repotting suggestions per your plant’s instruction tag*
Drill holes into the bottom of your buckets for proper drainage.
No drill? No problem!
A hammer and a large nail could also be used here!
Wrap your burlap around your bucket and cut it to size. Because one bucket that I was using was blue (and burlap is a bit see through), I folded my burlap in half to cover the color. Tuck in any additional burlap up and over into the bucket.
I was a tad overzealous with the soil and began adding it a bit too soon. It is best to add the soil AFTER you have wrapped and tucked your burlap fabric around your bucket.
Wrap your twine along the top of your bucket a few times. There’s really no wrong way to do this. Once it has the thickness and width you like, cut your twine and tie a bow (it’s really that simple!)
Finally, add your potting soil and your plant!
I chose to add a bit of Spanish Moss as well to keep the soil moist and clean.
These planters are just too perfect! They are so easy. Anyone can do them and they are extremely versatile in decor!
