Growing flowers and vegetables on the balcony is really a fun thing, maybe you will think, it’s time to go to the flower market to buy some beautiful flower pots! Wait a minute – are you sure you don’t have anything to make a pot in your house? If you really can’t remember, you might as well go to your own storage room and look around, there must be what you need. As for how to turn waste into flower pots, look at the series of pictures below, and you will definitely be inspired! Let’s spread our thinking to create a creative small home!
Canned flower pots: All kinds of metal paint cans, or large food cans, can be used as flower pots! If you or your kids are into art, grab a paintbrush and paint some fresh color on the outside of the can. Lined up and hung on the wall, it is a space-saving three-dimensional garden.
Teacups, teapots, and drain basket flowerpots: People who “love the new and hate the old” often accumulate some unused tableware and cooking utensils in their homes, and the containers for cultivation are also perfect. The cute images of small teacups and teapots seem to be naturally matched with chubby succulents. If you only water it once for a long time, you don’t have to worry about rotten roots of succulents. And those flower pots made of drain baskets are just right to help the roots of the flowers breathe. Hanging the drain basket is also a natural wrought iron flower basket!
Old furniture flower pots: In addition to being thrown into wood recycling plants, discarded old furniture can also be made into interesting growing containers. The layers formed by pulling out the drawers can allow all plants to receive good light, and can also create a three-dimensional effect for the greening of your home. And if you can also woodwork twice, you can imitate the transformation of the wooden barrel in the picture on the left, and transform your old furniture into a brand new flower bed.
Wooden Planters: Simpler wooden planters are here! There is no need to use a knife or an axe on the wooden barrels, as long as you use a bracket, two barrels, one large and one small, are stacked on top of each other, and the rustic feeling is also very pleasing. And if you are lucky enough to get a piece of wood like the picture on the right, you can dig a suitable space in the middle, and you can put your favorite flowers.
Chandelier Planter: An old-fashioned chandelier might not match the style of your new home, so make it a hanging planter. Adding a few cups of different shapes will make the whole look more dynamic.
Wall greening: Wall greening is really simple. If you tie your original simple flower pot to the wooden board used for packaging, or add these thin wooden flower troughs to the external wall, will there be a lot more space for planting flowers and vegetables?
Tire Planters: What are these chubby ones? Is it the tires? By the way, the big and small tires are painted like this, don’t they feel dirty and ugly at all? Such a colorful tire garden will make all children fall in love with gardening.
Hemp bag flower pots: Of course, homemade flower pots are not necessarily rigid. Such sacks can be hung up and filled with soil, and many vegetables can also be planted. Of course, this requires you to have a suitable outdoor environment, otherwise it will be difficult to move such a bag full of soil around.
Bag Planters: Check out these more loving wall-mounted planters. In fact, there is still a small container in each cloth bag to support it to ensure that the flower pot does not leak soil and water. However, from the overall effect of the appearance, the container inside cannot be seen. The whole shape is very childlike and will be loved by children.
Therefore, it is not impossible, only unexpected, to spend more thought on making containers must be much more interesting and environmentally friendly than buying flower pots from the flower market, and it is also a good opportunity for the family to enjoy gardening together.
