Recycled Flower Box

By: Natalie Pirvey for Creme de la Craft

Make this Recycled Flower Box for all your small plants.  It would be great for herbs and small flowers, and would be a great Mother's Day gift!  Flower box planters like this one from Natalie Pirvey are easy to make and Earth friendly in every way!.

Recycled Flower Box


  • Tissue Box
  • Newspaper Strips
  • 3 Disposable Styrofoam Cups
  • Glossy Decoupage Medium
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Foam Brush
  • 2 Small Cabinet Knobs
  • Ribbon
  • Tacky Glue (or E6000 glue for heavier knobs)


  1. Peel off the clear plastic strip from the inside of the tissue box.
  2. Apply a coat of decoupage medium with a foam brush, add a newspaper strip on top of it, and add another coat on top of the strip. Repeat until the entire box is covered.
  3. Once dry, paint the entire box with acrylic paint.
  4. For a decorative touch, attach cabinet knobs with glue (tip: if the knobs are heavy, use rubber bands to hold in place until dry).
  5. Add ribbon around the box with tacky glue.
  6. Insert disposable cups inside the box. You may need to bend them a little, but they should fit snugly inside.
  7. Add water to the cups and arrange flowers.
