30+ Upcycling Ideas for Garden Planters or Garden Pots

As an upcycler, I absolutely LOVE incorporating vintage treasures- especially ones in disrepair- into my garden decor. And I am by no means alone- using antiques or secondhand items as garden planters or garden pots is so popular, that big box stores are stocking their shelves with “new made to look old” garden items. But save yourself a trip, head out to your garage or shed, and you may just have the perfect piece to use.

From old furniture, to tires…tea tins and kitchen ware, there are any number of flower box ideas, unique planters, or garden pots that you can make. Repurposing thrift store finds or other things from your basement, attic, or garage into garden planters is a great way to breathe new life into them. Literally and figuratively!

Whether you use these flower box ideas or unique planters inside, on your porch, or as garden decor outside, I think you’ll be amazed and inspired by all the upcycling ideas here!
