DIY Tuesday: Recycled Planters

We've come across some great ideas lately for making flower and plant containers out of recycled materials. Here's a little collection of some of the best we've seen. Get crafting!

This "up-cycled drink caddy" is a genius idea! Instead of throwing away those fast-food drink carriers, add some clay pots and a little scrap fabric, and you've got some adorable plant storage.

All this simple project requires is a small wood log and a drill and you've got a beautifully rustic natural vase. These would look so great on a mantle in a grouping in different heights.

Here's a fun new twist on the mason jar flower vase. Filled with some wildflowers, these would look fabulous lining the aisle of an outdoor wedding. They're just wired to the branches with zip ties and twine.

It doesn't get much simpler than this. Lined with a few pebbles, this vintage teacup becomes a planter. These would look great filled with kitchen herbs and lining a window sill.
