Cheap DIY Planter Ideas and Tutorials

Cheap DIY Planter Ideas from Child at Heart

I have never been successful with growing flowers and this year I decided I would conquer my fear of dying plants 🙂  I have been buying them left and right and noticed that the planters REALLY add up.  I am a huge fan of the plain terra cotta pots but I had to share some of these DIY planter ideas because they are genius.

My little DIY planter is just some pretty lace (left over from my dreamcatcher) that I hot-glued to a plain terra cotta pot.  It took less than 2 minutes!  That’s my kind of project 🙂

This one is the BEST because I love green chili! (duh I’m from New Mexico)  Any can could become a fun planter in minutes.

    I love this so much! I recently moved into an apartment with a cute little balcony and want to make it even better with a few plants.
