25 DIY Planters Made From Things You’d Never Consider.

Many people find gardening a very relaxing and therapeutic hobby. Unfortunately, not everyone has the time and energy to invest into an actual garden.

Most people like to keep a few indoor plants. If you choose the right plants, they make great decor in any room and are easy to care for. But of course when you have a gorgeous plant, you want a planter that matches it. You can go to the store and pickup one of those plain pots that practically everyone uses or you can be creative and create your own planters out of unconventional items.

If you think about it, you can turn just about anything into a planter just so long as it has a base and a compartment that can hold a certain amount of soil. The best part is choosing a unique item to turn into your planter. Check out some of the awesome DIY ideas we've collected for you below.
