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


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’ve put together a roundup of 23 planter ideas made from repurposed items in, around or on your house!  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.

    These ideas are awesome! I have so much junk lying around and I love finding new things to do with it. I’ll definitely be trying the tyre planter idea and will try and get my kids involved as well. Any excuse to get them gardening!

    Thanks for sharing!
