Creative Planter Ideas [VIDEO]

Creative Planter Ideas [VIDEO]

A little creativity can go a long way! In this episode of DIY Friday, New Brighton ReStore Manager Jan shares surprising items that you can use in your garden. An added bonus? You can find many materials for her ideas at our ReStore locations in Minneapolis or New Brighton. You'll find great deals, help keep materials out of landfills, and support the mission of Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity.

Here are some of Jan's simple, creative ideas:

  • Use unique light fixtures as planters in your garden

  • Put flower pots on each platform of a chandelier for a useful, one-of-a-kind addition to your yard

  • Use wire or other materials to make your own art or sculptures

Jan also shares a reminder that creativity does not equal perfection. Sometimes trying new ideas doesn't go as planned, and DIY often involves trial and error. However, it's part of the process and can be a great way to learn! Don't let a mistake stop you from trying again.
