Spring is just around the corner and we’re itching to see those spring gardens in full bloom. But gardens and flowery outdoor spaces aren’t just about your plant choice — add extra character and personality to your yard, with sweet DIY flower pots and planters that are perfect to brighten up your early spring gardens!
Antique Style Pot
Add some unique style to your planters, with this fun technique to “age” the pots. All it takes is some paint and a good brush, to give plants and pots purchased from the garden store an elegant, antique look.
Vertical Pallet Garden
If you’re not feeling that horizontal vibe, don’t be afraid to think in a different direction. Add an herb or succulent garden to your wall, by turning a sturdy pallet board into a vertical garden. You can paint it, leave it natural, and add labels— whatever your green thumb is feeling!
Textured Flower Pots
Give your garden a dreamy, French-style feel, with these whitewashed terracotta flower pots, also perfect for herbs, succulents, and small plants. Having these little guys on your windowsill or porch steps adds instant cottage charm.
Teacup Garden Stake
Even in the flower bed, you can make certain plants stand out from the rest, by planting them in raised planters on garden stakes. If you’ve found a wire planter or pot that you love, try this DIY to easily attach a stake.
Perfect for adding a pop of pretty to your fence or porch posts, this chicken wire planter is filled with moss and attached to a plank of pallet wood, making it not only a cozy pocket for a container garden, but an interesting display, too!
Talk about maximum drainage! This “planter” is made to keep your hanging plants bright and healthy, and you can find it anywhere for super cheap. Though this looks great indoors, you might want to use it as a porch or patio planter, to keep your floors clean.
