Make a Shell Window Box Garden Planter
 
You don't have to live at the beach to bring a touch of the beach to your home.  Here is a DIY tutorial on how to make a window box planter that is covered in seashells.

Decorated window boxes provide a delightful finish to windows, almost bringing the garden into your house.  Being flat-fronted, they are also easier to decorate than round pots.  Here mussel shells lend impact to a coordinated planting of lavender and violas.  Experiment with different shapes, using some mussel shells face up and others face down.

Materials:

Small terracotta window box planter (we got em here)
Mussel Shells
Glue Gun
Crocks or Pebbles
Compost
Slow release plant food granules
2 lavender plants
tray of viola plants

Start out by laying your pattern out on a table so you can get an idea of how to proceed before gluing them on the planter.  When finished, glue the shells on the side of the window box planter.

Crocks or pebbles over the drain holes inside the window box.  Fill the planter with compost, adding plant food as you go.  Place the lavenders at the back of the box. Press extra compost in front of them till it is the right height for the violas.  Plant the violas next.

Press more compost firmly around all the plants and water the window box container generously.  Place the planter in an area that gets partial sunlight, keep the soil moist but not wet and enjoy your own DIY Window Box Planter.
