The 35 Most Creative DIY Planters

If you haven’t already noticed, spring is in full swing here at Craft & Creativity. And you know what spring means? Pretty plants! And what’s a super awesome succulent without the perfect planter? Here are 35 DIY planters for all those spring flowers.


1. Floppy Disk Planters: We’ll start with an oldie but a goodie. These floppy disk planters are a great way to repurpose old tech.


2. Book Planters: You knew you saved your high school geometry text book for a reason ;)


3. Painted Pots Hanging on Fence: Buy a bunch of potted plants, paint the pots, and nail ‘em up on your fence.


4. Switch Plate Planters: We love the hacker look of this, though we’re not sure we have tons of extra switch plates lying around.


5.  Hanging Garden Boots: How adorable are these? Perfect for April showers and May flowers.


6. Painted Tire Planters: Loving all the color!


7. Colander Planters: Colanders are actually kind of perfect planters since they let your plants breathe and drain.


8. Aged Terra Cotta Pots: You can totally fake the antique look with a little help from dirt, spray paint stone, and moss.


9. Modern Paver Planters: You can use readymade stones for a path and turn them into planters. Win!


10. Vertical Succulent Garden: The beauty of the vertical succulent garden will never get old.


11. Concrete Planters: We are particularly digging the sunburst-shaped planter – it almost looks like a coffee filter!


12. Chandelier Planter: What a totally brilliant use of a broken or old chandelier.


13. Hanging Purse Garden: This one might be on the too silly side of the coin.


14. Fabric-Covered Pots: Spray adhesive and fabric instantly turn boring plastic pots into gorgeous planters.


15. Faux Vintage Flower Pots: Like the aged terra cotta, these are totally fake!


16. Paint Can Planters: Such great use of old paint cans.


17. Muffin Tins + Ice Cream Dishes: When in doubt, you can always turn to your trust muffin tin.


18. Miniature Shell Garden: These totally remind us of Marcel the Shell!


19. Workspace Planter Set: No need for your desk? Turn it into a garden.


20. Sea Urchin Air Plants: Love this mix of land and sea.


21. Macrame Micro Planter: This planter is so adorable we almost want to wear it, especially with that sweet macrame hanger!!


22. Cork Air Plant Magnets: What a cute use of old corks!


23. Book Planters: The more book planters, the merrier.


24. Recycled Upside Down Planters: We love the idea of hanging tomato and herb plants for small apartments and homes.


25. Shoe Organizer Vertical Garden: This might be a better use of of those weird shoe organizers than using them for shoes.


26. Chevron Wood Box: You had us at chevron.


27. Textured Planters: The texture on these planters was created using wine corks. So cool.


28. Linen Milk Carton: Simply wrap linen around a milk carton and you’ve got this gorgeous rustic look.

32. Neon Concrete Blocks: These would also double as great bookends.


33. Vertical Tie Planters: Can you say pocket tie?! :)


34. Recycled Billboard Planters: Instead of using recycled billboard banners (which we’re guessing you don’t have access to), use grocery totes.
