August 1st, 2018

We love having planters and flowers pots around our home to bring in lots of greenery and beauty to 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 nice and neat. It also won’t look like a cheap container on your pool deck.

You don’t need a barbecue to make S’mores. You can pop some charcoal into a large or small terra cotta planter and enjoy a patio potluck. Get all the details on how to do it here.

Instead of using an unsightly tub to house your beverages and ice, use a planter. It looks a lot nicer. It’s also portable so you can bring it poolside or near the grill.

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.

Want your house numbers to stand out? Use some garden planters. Place one number on each planter and really make your house numbers stand out. Or several numbers on one planter. You can put flowers in it or place lights inside of it.
