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.
My daughter loves anything old or antique and loves rag rugs, so I decided to use the rag rug technique and make her rag flower pots.
Here are ideas for reusing items as planters or pots from the ThriftyFun community. Post your own unusual planter ideas below.
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.
Want something different for your front lawn or garden? Use an iron chair or glider and fill it with ivy and flowers.
Planning ahead for the seasons can add challenges to spring planting. Instead of planting each season, plant now to create an entire yearly display for much less than you'll pay to replant it each season.
This is a recycling craft using children's pants as a holder for potted plants. Quite unique and cute. I saw the idea in a Birds and Blooms magazine and used it myself.
My yard is mostly shade with the gravel driveway being the sunniest spot on the property. I refused to give up vegetable gardening when we bought the place, so I gathered up my galvanized tub collection.
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.
Buying planters and containers to display summer flowers in can be expensive. I'm always looking for items around the house that can be repurposed as planters.
Because we drink a lot of coffee, we often have so many left over containers. I have given these sturdy and decorative containers a new life while helping with the land fill. I use them as planters for myself, friends, and family.
