You what they say: “one man’s junk is another man’s treasure”—and it’s extremely true! Especially when plants and yard decor is involved!

Every household accumulates items that they eventually need to throw away due to wear and tear. It’ll either go in the trash, get donated to the local thrift store, or, my personal favorite solution: get upcycled into amazing home and garden decor.

You can upcycle almost anything into a planter. I say almost because material like cardboard for example, can get soggy from water—which is what plants occasionally need.


So what kind of items can be upcycled into amazing planters? Items like: teapots, shoes, mugs and even jeans are excellent items that can be flipped into planters! Unique and unconventional planters add style, charm and character to your home and garden.
