I was a little apprehensive about water ruining the balsa wood after some time but there's a solution for that. This planter is really chic as amazingly easy as it is to make. I won't ever take balsa wood for granted again.

I love this planter. It is just the size I want to grow herbs or to have plants in our home. I will have to get my husband to make them for me. Also, a way to hang them up since we have two cats who would definitely, well try to eat the plants.
