I suppose I’ve never been very creative in the garden; whenever I want to plant something, I always go for a boring old pot! But really, you can make a planter out of just about anything. Why not add a little bit of whimsy and charm to your garden with items you already have around the house? Here are a few of my favorite clever garden container ideas. Get inspired!
1. Shoe Planters
Drill a few holes in the bottom for proper drainage, and you’ve got a charming little container! This works well for plants with small root systems, like succulents or herbs.
2. Vintage Bicycle Planters
A vintage bike is a whimsical way to show off your potted plants. Leave it as is, or spray paint it to match your garden’s theme.
3. Cork Planters
You can’t get much smaller than this! Succulents are perfect because they’re so hardy and you can just use a small clipping. Attach a magnet and place them on your fridge!
