Window boxes are a wonderful way to decorate the outside of your windows. They will definitely add to the curb appeal of your home, especially if your home’s exterior doesn’t have many architectural details. Window boxes are also a fun trick for hiding old windows, until you are ready to replace them. 😉 Lets add some colorful window boxes!

Pick the right mix of plants.

Choose an exciting center piece of something a little taller for the center and towards the back of the box. Some nice center piece plants include fountain grass, geraniums, marigolds, and wild flowers. Then add some small and classy accent flowers or foliage for filler. Some great filler plants in window boxes are: pansies, petunias, impatiens, snapdragons, and lobelias. For around the edges, pick a plant that cascades down the side such as creeping petunias, ivy, or sweet potato vine.

There are many window box materials to choose from. Be sure to choose something light and properly mount it for safety. Here are some fun DIY window boxes you can make:
