How to Make a Whiskey Barrel Planter
Time Required: Under 2 hours
Looking for a way to add a little rustic charm to your home or garden decor? Using half of a whiskey barrel as a planter lets you set some plants apart while harkening back a frontier aesthetic. These instructions will show you how to prepare a barrel or cask so as to give your plants maximum advantage.
The finished planted will be heavy, so go ahead and place it where you want your plants to grow. Cover the bottom of the barrel with rock. A 2 to 3 inch thick layer should be enough, but more rock can be used.
