We love having planters and flower pots around our home to bring in lots of greenery and beauty to our indoor and outdoor spaces.

But there are lots of creative ways to use your pretty planters that don’t involve putting plants in them.

Here Are 10 Creative Uses For Garden Planters And Flower Pots:

1) Use It Poolside For Towels

Need an inexpensive way to store your pool towels? Use a planter. It will keep them organized and neat. It also will look like a far more expensive container than most of the ones you see on pool decks.

2) S’mores Grill

You don’t need a fire pit to make S’mores. Just pop some charcoal into a large or small terra cotta planter and use some lighter fluid to get your mallow toasting flame going. Get all the details on how to do it here.

3) Beverage Cooler

Instead of using an unsightly tub to house your beverages and ice, use a planter. It gives off a higher-end look. It’s also portable so you can bring it poolside or near the grill, just make sure it isn’t too heavy before you try to pick it up!

4) Bathroom Organizers

You can paint flower pots to perfectly match your bathroom decor. Fill them with Q-tips, cotton balls, and other items. They will look nice, match your bathroom, and keep it organized.

5) Side Table

This idea is brilliant! If you have a planter that you’re absolutely in love with, toss a glass top or wooden piece over it. It can be turned into an instant table.

6) Beverage Drink Dispenser Stand

If you don’t have a stand for these things you have to hang them off the side of the table and that’s just asking for an accident. Instead, make a beverage dispenser stand from a flower pot and saucer. Glue the upsidedown saucer to the bottom of the planter and place your dispenser on top of it.

7) House Numbers

Want your house numbers to stand out? Use some garden planters. Create your unique house number display by gluing one or several numbers on each planter. You can put flowers in it, place lights inside of it, or both.

8) Condiment Station

Keep your condiments, napkins, and utensils organized and in one place with flower pots. It’s a lot nicer looking than just tossing them on the table. You can also paint or decorate them so they’ll be festive.
