My husband is in the construction business. One day he brought this old salad display home. It is the large kind you see at buffets. It has a sneeze guard on the top.

I saw a combat boot used as a panter ! I LOVED that one !
I grew a cherry tomatoe once in a big Ketsup bottle - I just cut off the top down t the Heinz label -
I have seen vegitable plants grown in reused cans of the same vegitable ! Thats a sweet one !
An old wheel barrow makes a nice planter - you can wheel it wherever you want it !
An old high heel would make a cute planter too I think !
I found an old pipestand once & at a rummage sale I found some plastic test tubes that party drinks came in & painted some flowers on the top of the pipe stand & used the test tubes for plant starts !
If you want to make plant start to give to friends when they get a new apt- start them in nice little glass bottles with a ribbon wrapped around the neck so they can be hung in the window !

I actually have some plants in my kitchen in oven mitts. Way cute. I work with a company that sells a "no dirt" soil, so I can use anything for a planter because there is no mess. In the bathroom, I have a plant in a towel that is rolled up with a bow tied around it and the plant in the middle.

Love the idea about veggie cans. I'm going to try that right away.

Today I was driving by someone's home and saw what I thought were pretty white "pillars" down the side of their driveway with gorgeous plant boxes sitting inside of them hanging down over the sides of the "pillars".

I used an old wheelbarrow by drilling holes in the bottom for drainage, throw in some gravel then top w/soil and plants. Plants that hang off the sides look great and something big and flashy in the middle.

Interesting focal points in your garden don't always have to include terra cotta pots. See what you have around the house that would make a creative planter.

This is a very long driveway planter. It is made from long narrow shipping crates that held steel roller assemblies. I painted them and my husband moved them into place aligned and attached them to make one long planter.

Want something different for your front lawn or garden? Use an iron chair or glider and fill it with ivy and flowers.

My husband put some wooden sides on it and I lined the bottom with coconut liners.
