Supplies to build boxes for a floral aisle
-3 Fence slats per five foot box you want to make. We used cedar and they cost just under $1 per slat.
-miter or table saw to cut the wood, screwdriver, screws
-stain, brushes
-Thick plastic drop cloth
-floral foam
-flowers

How to make the flower boxes
1.Cut each wooden slat to 5 feet in length
2. Assemble three boards into a trough shape by fastening them with screws every foot or so.
3. Cut the leftover ends into squares that are the same size as the open ends on the box, fasten them with screws.
4. Stain boxes and let dry.
5. Lay drop cloth plastic in boxes so that it covers the bottom and goes up the edges. I double them up so that there are two layers.
6. Insert bricks of soaked floral foam into the box end to end so that they are fairly snug.
7.Trim back any foam that is over the top of the boxes and trim off any excess plastic or tuck it down.

How to build the Wildlfower Aisle
1-2. Start filling the box with greenery that is full and will cover a lot of the foam
3-4. Fill the box with the next layer of flowers, some medium height flowers and greenery to fill the box, then the taller focal flowers last. At the very end I inserted some light grasses for some finishing texture.
