Original flower pots made with recycled objects

Original DIY pots

These days, I am spending a few days at my sister’s house who is on vacation. It has a beautiful garden with a swimming pool and plants that grow in every corner. I am convinced that plants have an emotional register and, in the case of my sister, she believed that she inherited a certain sensitivity from my maternal grandmother, who did wonders with any small sprout. The plants were reborn in her little patio and something similar happens with my sister, who collects plants from the street and, like my grandmother, knows how to revive them until they become beautiful and radiant.

I have observed his garden these days and discovered that he also has good taste with pots. My sister is a creative person, designer and painter, and so she chooses disused everyday objects and adapts them to plantstransforming them into original flower pots They vary in shape and size.

The kitchen, a hotbed of ideas

You can try it too, I’ll do it at my place when I get back. I have seen a small cactus grow enthusiastically in an old metal cup, the kind my grandmother used to make milk for us when we were little and we would visit them. He has also managed to put soil in metal water jugs and kettles, where he later placed slow-growing plants.

If you investigate, the ideas appear and the best thing is that they are at your fingertips. It is not necessary to have money to buy new pots but you can create a very special atmosphere in your garden or balcony with what you have in your home and do not use.

Take a good look around you and choose striking objects that vary in colors. You can use disused strainers and paint them with metal paint to create an attractive nook to place flowering plants. The strainer holes are the perfect drain for these unique planters.

You can also use earthenware cups and plates Well, you just have to make a small hole with an electric hole -to avoid breaking the tiles- and thus obtain the drainage and then place a plant.

The old cans They look great in the garden or at least that’s what I think … maybe because I’m a lover of them. In the markets they sell them at very low prices so you can put together several cans of cookies, sweets or chocolates from the 40s or 50s to group plants of the same style or others that contrast.
