10 Repurposed Garden Planters
I’m always looking for interesting things at thrift stores and garage sales to repurpose as planters, and these 10 repurposed garden planters are just a few ideas that I’ve shared over the years.
Tucking unique planter surprises here and there will add some fun to your gardens and outdoor spaces.
To check out any of these planter projects just click on the pink link below each photo.
Like this metal chair that I repurpoed into a planter, and the cute wire teapot and teacup set that create a fun vignette in our hosta garden.
Green tea anyone?
You can’t see it in this picture but there’s a lamp in this vignette too.
I have a thing for wheelbarrows, and this wooden one that John found for me a few years ago got an easy makeover before being planted.
Vintage sinks are a great idea when it comes to planters. but there are a few steps to planting in them successfully… so they don’t get waterlogged from lack of drainage.
In this post I share those steps, and 2 other sinks that I also planted.
Framed a wall planter is a fun idea, and will surely add some interest to a boring wall or fence.
Although it doesn’t last as long as some other repurposed planters a purse is a fun way to show off some pretty flowers.
And larger tote bag type purses work great too.
These purse planters may only last a couple of seasons, or maybe even just one if they’re exposed to a lot of weather, but it you find the purses for a dollar or two it’s well worth it.
There are many different kinds of magazine racks and many of them could easily be made into planters like this one.
Keep an eye out at your local thrift stores and see what you can find.
I rescued this doll carriage from the dump a few years ago and have used it as a planter ever since.
It looks awesome when the plants spill over the sides.
Strainers make excellent planters because they come with built in drainage, and metal watering cans are a great option too.
A few years ago I repurposed another strainer into a planter and wind chime combo. The flowers are pretty, and the measuring spoons tinkle beautifully in the summer breezes.
This is just a few ideas for things that can be repurposed as planters.
The list goes on and on and on. Basically, pretty much anything you can fit a plant into, large or small, can become a fun and unique planter.
What cool thing have you repurppsed as a planter?
Thanks so much for reading, and until next time…
