This past Winter seemed like it was never going to end.
Since we have gotten a late start to Spring, this past weekend was the first really warm days we had so I got busy planting in my garden.
I wanted to make sure that I enjoy every moment that I can spend outside in the warm weather and these 7 Creative Flower Planter Ideas will help you enjoy your space, too.
Wishing Well- This is a simple way to add a creative touch to an already established garden.
Hanging a basket of flowers that flow out of a wishing well is an easy way to brighten up or bring back life to an old decoration.
Plus, if you wished for a prettier wishing well, it’s your lucky day, no quarter needed.
Boots- Don’t throw those old boots in the trash just because they have a hole in them, upcycle them into a creative planter.
Cowboy boots and rainboots alike look fantastic with a few bright flowers planted inside.
Even an old pair of boots with holes will work, in fact, adding a few extra holes is not a bad idea, proper drainage is crucial to a hearty plant.
Storage Bin- Look through your cabinets and pull out those storage bins that never get used, have warped lids, missing lids, or never had a lid in the first place.
Plant some flowers inside and enjoy the creative addition to your garden.
I just couldn’t make these bright red storage bins work in my house but I love them as a creative planter idea.
Watering Can- Do you collect watering cans or just have more than you will ever need?
I sure do and garage sale season is about to begin so I will be adding more to my collection anytime now at the cost of about a quarter a piece.
Grab a couple from a thrift shop or garage sale and plant a few annuals inside.
I know you will enjoy the new purpose of these cute upcycled planters.
Stock Pot- I love being in the kitchen, cooking, cleaning, playing games at the table, it is my favorite room in the house.
I don’t say that in a narcissistic or a sarcastic way, I really enjoy spending time in there, it’s my dream kitchen.
A long time ago, I was a professional new construction house cleaner, they are who come clean up the paint, drywall, and dust left over from the painters and builders.
Anyway, I would spend the entire time I was in those houses cleaning them like they were my own and thinking about the possibility that someday I could have an awesome kitchen too.
Now that I do, I try to enjoy it as much as I can.
Not only do I love the way it looks but I enjoy buying housewares that are typically found in the kitchen.
Since I just don’t have enough room for every style of pot, mixing bowl, canister, or dishes in the kitchen, I started using these pieces in the garden.
Cookie Jar- I never have cookies already made in my home, just waiting to be grabbed from the cookie jar but I do have several cookie jars for some reason.
That reason may have something to do with all of the citywide garage sales in the Cedar Rapids area, I can’t turn down a cool cookie jar for a quarter.
I just love these kinds of items, I pick them up at thrift stores and garage sales with no real plan on how they will fit into my life but it worked out in the end because a cookie jar makes a beautiful planter!
Purse- I have a few old purses that were given to me as a gift and they are in pretty rough shape these days.
I used to just keep them in the closet, buried, and never really gave them a second thought until creativity struck and I brought new life to my old purses.
Planting flowers inside a purse is a great way to enjoy them again but be sure to check the material for water resistance or plant your flowers in a pot before adding to the purse then hang under a roof if needed.
