23 Clever Planter Ideas From The Most Unlikely Items

23 Clever Planter Ideas

I am no gardener. I have thumbs (thankfully) but neither of them are remotely green. 



I do love quirky decorating ideas however, so I can definitely appreciate the ‘repurpose-all-things-imaginable-to-create-a-super-cool-planter’ craze concept that has been circulating Pinterest for quite some time now. I mean, like, using actual store bought pots to grow your plants or herbs are like sooo yesterday! Keep up! Its all about recycled containers right now…what you decide to put in them may not always be relevant?

I’m kidding! Of course…

I’ve put together 23 planter ideas made from the most un-likely of items in, around or on your house! Of course I can’t guarantee that said plants will thrive in these wonderfully creative containers but they will definitely add that unique touch to your home or garden.
