4th of July Planter


(1 Votes)


Create a patriotic planter with plastic-canvas flag hearts and a cross-stitch plant stake. The planter from Dimensions is assembled from inexpensive mat board or painted cardboard.

4th of July Planter



  • four plastic canvas kits #72978 Heart on My Pocket (Learn-a-Craft)
  • heavy cardboard or matboard (enough for five 7" squares)
  • masking tape
  • thick craft glue

Planter Stake:

  • counted cross stitch kit #72785 So Patriotic (Garfield)
  • plant stake or heavy wire
  • thick craft glue



  1. Cut five 7" squares from the cardboard.
  2. Construct a box (sides and bottom) with the squares, using masking tape to hold the pieces together.
  3. Glue one plastic canvas design (with mat and frame) to each side of the box. (Hint: Use large rubberbands to help hold them in place after gluing.)

Planter Stake:

  1. Glue the plant stake or wire to the back of the counted cross stitch design. If you are using wire and want to add curlicues, bend the wire around a pencil several times.
