Hello spring… hello pretty flowers in a classic window box that makes my house cuter than I thought it could look! Lately I say that to myself every time I walk up to my front door. Today I have DIY window box plans and a giveaway that I’ve waited weeks to share with you! When Ryobi Tools asked me to join in their group theme of an outdoor spring project, I was 100% in! Spring and good weather have arrived and it’s time to get the DIY’ng outdoors. I was ready to roll up my sleeves, break out my tools and get to planing something awesome!
Curb appeal is something a house either has or doesn’t. Mine fits the latter of the two categories. None. I knew we’d have to work hard and be very creative to create curb appeal when we bought this place. I can’t begin to tell you how surprised I was to step back and admire the transformation after installing my window box project and adding a few colorful flowers!
This project is simple enough for the beginner tool DIY’er to make, and budget friendly too.
You’ll find my free plans to make a classic window box on Ryobi Nation along with lots of other inspiring projects for every skill level.

I LOVE my Ryobi One tools, the rechargeable batteries last a long time, and they are the right eight and size for me. yet powerful! There’s never a better time than today if you’re wanting to learn or improve your tool skills… especially when it’s free 🙂

Love this project! I’ve been meaning to add some flower boxes for a while.
Hi Sarah and thank you! You definitely should ad window boxes to the front of your home! This one little window box has made such a huge difference in the way my home looks from the front yard. I can’t begin to tell you how much pleasure I get from having pretty flowers blooming in the window every time I drive up! Please share a picture in our Wednesday share day on the H2OBungalow Facebook page when you do! Thanks so much for your sweet note!
Wow! Your projects are awesome & inspiring! Can you ps share how you made the dolphin cutouts?
Hi Grace! Funny you should mention my dolphins. I’m replanting my window box this week for the season and was just looking at them. They came with the house and are made from concrete. I did make a fish project where I cut several fish out of wood and painted them. Here’s a link to that project. https://h2obungalow.com/wood-cut-out-shark/ I hope this helps! …and tank you fr such a sweet and awesome comment about my projects!

I ADORE window boxes. I had them at my old house and my new house doesn’t have them YET. they add a softness to any house. BTW nice blog!
Nancy Jo, I love widow boxes too and it never dawned on me that one would look good on my house until I built this one! I love the “Yet” in your statement! This is an easy plan to make one..or more! Thanks so much for stopping by & your super sweet comment about my blog!

Your window box looks fabulous Wendi! I love window boxes and wish our house could accommodate them. Heck, I wish we would get Spring so I can plant some flowers!
Oh I sooo feel for you friend! We are in flip flops and sunscreen already. I can see this window box in front of your new windows! It’s easy to make too! Sending you warm wishes for a speedy spring arrival and flowers in bloom!
I love this Wendi! I have the perfect spot for this at our new house… right under my laundry room window. Can’t wait to make it!
Sarah… I KNOW you could make this window box! Congratulations on your new house and most definately add the window box!
