I've repurposed tin cans, old shoes, boxes and numerous other items as planters. This year, I decided to use a watering pitcher that had a crack in the bottom.

In the Dollar Store we found some plastic toy wheel barrows and dump trucks. We set them on a mat that keeps weeds out with pea pebbles, and filled them up (first hubby drilled drainage holes) and set them out front.

On a recent drive around town I saw this fun planter in someone's yard. They used a Little Tikes football toy box, which I frequently see at yard sales and thrift stores.

Our old southwest fountain finally "bit the dust" and no longer held water. Try as we would, it could not be saved. So we decided to fill it with dirt and added some plants and a bird nest to add interest to the front yard.

We always try not to add to the landfill.

I hated to throw away our used swimming pool filter and thought it looked so interesting. I stood it upright and put a flower pot on top of it.

The easy way is to heat a hole punch, awl, or nail tip over a lit candle. Then simply push it down into the turned over container in several spots to allow for adequate drainage.
