Great DIY Planters!

Using planters to liven up your yard or patio is a wonderful idea, instead of a stationary garden where you are pretty much stuck with where it is at, planters can be moved to new locations to allow for changes you may decide on in the future.

If you look thru your garden shed, garage or even the attic, you may find some fun things that will make great DIY planters. If you don’t find anything there, take a look at your parents or maybe a close neighbor has some items they are looking to get rid that they think is junk, you could turn it to a beautiful planter.
