DIY Planter Ideas

Plants are beautiful elements of dΓ©cor that are eco-friendly and sustainable. The pots that are used to hold these living beauties are a different story. In most cases the plant comes with a thin plastic planter that does not look great and is also not durable. Instead of going shopping for a new planter, consider these 10 ways to take items you already have and up-cycle it into a gorgeous and creative planter. 

A water can planter: It is a popular look to fill a backyard with typical gardening tools as lawn decor, and we see why! Taking gardening elements and turning them into planters is an adorable way to use an old item in a creative and eco-friendly way. Use a watering can or old wheelbarrow as a new planter to complete this look for yourself. 

Tires are ideal resources to repurpose because they are durable, large, and usually free! In addition, tires are horrible to just throw away. By repurposing tires into large planters, you are doing so much more for the environment and benefiting your yard as well!

Take an old chandelier and show it some love with a new coat of paint and plants. This look is perfect to fill with a plant similar to ivy that will hang down from the planter chandelier. This planter will shine in your outdoor or indoor living space!  

Toolboxes, tackle boxes, and suitcases seem like they are already planters ready to display our gorgeous new plants with style and flare! 

A stackable, modern, and creative approach to planters is by reusing cement cinder blocks. These blocks can be painted or stacked to fix any space perfectly. The touch part is deciding where you want the planters to go, and how you will customize them to fit your desired style!

Basket planters, these can be used hanging or sitting on the patio.

You can also find very unique animal planters at from ocean theme to woodland theme. These planters are perfect for small succulents or air plants.
