Here are some simple, beautiful, and fun DIY planter ideas.
Concrete Block Planters – Turn plain concrete blocks into unique planters by filling them with soil. The great thing about concrete blocks is they can be stacked.
Recycled Can Planters – With a little bit of paint your empty cans can become cute (and free) planters. You can even crush them a little to give them a unique shape. Can planters are perfect for windowsills.
Clay Planters – Use oven baked clay to make little holders for your plants. You can really show your creativity by designing each planter yourself.
Popcorn Tin Planters – Simply fill an old popcorn tin with seed and soil, water it, and you’re done. You could also use an old paint can if you’d like. Pound a nail through the bottom to make several holes for drainage to avoid over-watering.
