I decided to cut a hole in something that has been hanging around our house for a couple years, something that was my son’s when he was a toddler and now I’m trying to turn it into an outdoor planter. It’s not going so well, in fact, I almost threw it in the trash but I’m working on salvaging it! What I thought would be an easy outdoor planter turned in to a lengthy project. Does that ever happen to you? With any luck, I will share it with you soon, I hope! Here are some easy outdoor planters I found that inspired me to create my own.
Who would have thought that a wine crate into a planter would make such a cute outdoor planter. Add a plastic liner inside and a coat of water sealer (spray or paint) and you have a cute planter. Love this idea.
My mom and I have been searching around the house looking for anything to create an easy outdoor planter. My dad said, “why don’t you just go buy some?” Well what fun would that be right? It’s amazing the items you will find when you think outside the box a little bit. Always remember, you can add a plant to just about anything by simply drilling some holes in the bottom for drainage.
