29 Creative DIY Planters To Try

Sharing 29 creative DIY planter ideas to get you ready for Spring! From repurposed upcycled items to wooden planters for both real and faux plants, we’ve got you covered.

I cannot believe it’s MARCH already.

In just a few short weeks I’ll be spending every day soaking in the sunshine and warmth with my little kiddos.  There’s not much I don’t love about the spring months!

Aside from the obvious plus of warmer weather, the sun actually peaks out from behind the clouds and you can start to see tiny buds appear on the trees and plants.  It’s quite literally a new beginning.  I always feel refreshed and energized during the Spring season.

Another favorite part of Spring for me is planting flowers.  I could spend hours looking over every little flower at a particular local nursery we always go to each year.  Of course, the kids don’t quite allow for hours of browsing, more like 5 minutes of grabbing whatever I see that looks hearty 😉

But, then there’s the digging and planting.  Snagging a few new pots and planters each year.  And watching the flowers bloom and grow.  It’s truly one of my favorite times of the year!

Since it’s beginning to sort of feel like Spring, pretending the snow we are scheduled to get tonight isn’t real, I figured I could round up a few creative DIY planter ideas to get you into the spring mood too!

So, do you have a favorite?  Any particular one you want to try yourself??  

I personally love the wood bead hanging planter or the IKEA hack industrial planter.  Orrrr the stamped clay pots.  Okay, I have a mild obsession with making my own planters.  I want to try them all!!

Wishing you a joyful day!
