I love thrift stores, garage sales, flea markets, and repurposing what I have. I recently went digging in my stuff as well as on an adventure to these places to find items I could repurpose into planters for the summer!
Let’s Start with the process …
First find something you want to turn into a planter. I’ll be using this watering can that I found at the flea market.
I added some dirt into the watering can with a garden shovel. Optional – I use gardening gloves to protect my hands.
I pulled the flowers out of the plastic container they came in. If the flowers are in the container kind of tight, give the plastic container a little squeeze to help loosen them.
I placed my flowers into my watering can on top of the dirt inside.
I added some more dirt around the flowers and pressed down around the roots to make sure I got them planted in the watering can securely.
I watered the flowers a little after planting to hydrate them.
I placed my planter where I wanted to display it.
Let’s look at a few other’s I made…
I found this sauce holder minus all the cups at the thrift store.
I removed basil, rosemary, and parsley from their plastic containers and replanted them in dollar tree pots. I placed the flower pots in the holes in the sauce holder and I now have an herb planter for inside my home.
This is an old fondue pot that I found.
I used the top bowl to plant some lavender in and placed it on my porch. Not only does it smell wonderful, it also is a bug repellent.
I planted some flowers in my son’s old Tonka Truck. I added some dirt to the back and then planted the flowers in the it.
I used an old pot and added some flowers in it for my front porch.
I planted a mini rose plant in this tea cup.
This was a pumpkin candle holder and I placed a flower pot that I added basil to in the center.
I planted lavender in a thrift store tin pail I found. I placed the pail inside a clearance Easter Basket and made it into a hanging planter.
This one consists of a candle holder that I hot glued to the bottom of a glass. I planted a small flower into the glass and set it on my front porch.
Here is my plant stand on my front porch. I planted flowers in a mini strainer, a tea pot, an old bunt pan, and you can see the blue pot on the bottom.
