It seems that almost everything that is found around the house can be turned into creative planters. No matter how large or small, a plant seems to be able to find its way into anything with an opening large enough to put in some soil.
Typewriters, cowboy boots, paint cans, child’s wagons and even old books can make great planters. (affiliate link)
My favorite Creative Planters – Re-purposing in Style.
In case you haven’t noticed, spring is either here or almost here in most parts of the country. And when spring comes, the garden centers are full of the prettiest plant choices. And what is a pretty plant without a pretty planter to put it in?
Here are some of my all time favorites. They are by no means the only options available. The sky is the limit on creativity it seems. Just have a look around the house or in that pile destined for donations. There is sure to be something in the group that would make a great planter.
This is my all time favorite. I discovered it at a Plant shop in Greensboro, NC, called Plants and Answers and it gave me the inspiration for this article. I love the way the holes on the side hold some small plants too!
This adorable water spout planter is made with an old vintage necklace and some tear shaped glass beads. Fast easy and so cute!

Are your manual typing days long gone? If you have an old vintage typewrite, you could sell it on Ebay or you might want to try making it into a planter instead. With lots of nooks and crannies to fill, this is a great place for plants of all shapes and sizes. Source: Plan it DIY.
