16 Easy DIY Flowerpot Ideas (Part I)

Why are flowerpots so expensive and, perhaps more importantly, why do we continue to pay for them when we know we can stuff a plant into pretty much anything?</br></br>We have no answer to that question, save for the fact that there’s no accounting for taste, but we do have 16 ideas for where you can put your next plant. Some you’ll know, but hopefully others will make for a creative surprise.</br></br>Here are the first eight:</br></br><strong>1. Milk Cartons</strong></br></br>Just cut the top off, decorate it (or not), add dirt and you’re off to the races. The wax lining will allow it to last longer than you might think.</br></br><strong>2. Watering Cans</strong></br></br>Yes, it’s true you’re relieving yourself of a critical gardening tool with this option, but the cuteness factor may warrant the sacrifice.</br></br><strong>3. Wine Bottles</strong></br></br>You need a <a href="https://www.atgstores.com/dremel_m6941.html">Dremel rotary tool</a> or other glass-cutting gadget to make this happen, but it’s worth it in the long run – especially if you drink wine.</br></br><strong>4. Jelly Jars</strong></br></br>Cute! Plus, it gives you a reason (justification?) to eat more jelly.</br></br><strong>5. Vases</strong></br></br>Why all the fuss with the in and out and when you can just leave them in?</br></br><strong>6. Cinder Blocks</strong></br></br>You can fill in the bottoms by setting these on a piece of plywood (or other flat, disposable surface) and filling them with a small layer of QUIKRETE, or you can find a permanent place and start planting.</br></br><strong>7. Coffee Cans</strong></br></br>Paint them or wrap them in decorative paper, or just leave them be for a little old-timey country flair.</br></br><strong>8. Baskets</strong></br></br>It may seem like the dirt will sift right out of them – and if they’re too loosely woven it will – but many baskets are solid enough to hold dirt and plants beautifully.</br></br>Come visit tomorrow to see if our final eight projects for <a title="Planters" href="https://www.atgstores.com/decor/outdoor-decor-accents/planters/" target="_blank">DIY flowerpots</a> are fresh ideas for you!
