Garden of Clothes
Rather than getting rid of old clothes and shoes you no longer wear, bring new life to these items by using them as planters! It's an economical way to upcycle your clothing and get back in touch with nature. There is a world of possibilities to transform clothing into bright and bold planters.
Rain Boot Planter
Rain boots are sturdy and colorful, making them the perfect candidate for an outdoor planter! Hang rain boots on an outdoor wall with drainage holes at the bottom for excess water to escape. Find out more here!
Instead of getting your dad another tie, get creative and make him a tie planter! See the full tutorial here.
These Shoes Were Made For Planting
Old dress shoes get a new life outside as planters for bright blooms! Water the plants as if they were in an ordinary planter and watch them grow into their new shoes.
Hang On To Your Purse
For a fashionable spin on this idea, use purses or clutches for planters! Lining them with plastic is the best way to keep the potting soil in the correct spot.
Where Are The Bloomers?
You can even plant your pants! Grab a sturdy pair of blue jeans and start by filling them up with soil and top it off with some bright flowers.
Flip Flop Flowers
This idea would look great at a beach or lake house! Place a small plant inside of a coffee mug then secure the mug to the flip-flop. Hang it outside or inside for a unique nautical look.
As The Rain Falls
An upside down umbrella makes the perfect planter for an outdoor garden! Umbrellas can withstand any weather and will hold multiple plants.
This idea is perfect for old gardening hats you may have lying around! Secure the hats to the wall with a plant popping out the front for a pop of color on your home's exterior.
Cowboy boots are known for their longevity but they also make wonderful planters! Weigh the bottom of the boots down with gravel then fill with soil and flowers.
Overall, A Great Idea
Overalls are full of pockets which are perfect for holding plants!
The best part of these projects is bringing new life to an otherwise tossed aside item. Upcycling is the best way to save money and get creative! Try some of these out in your own garden and watch the transformation of your hard work unfold.
