Cowboy boots:
Use your retired cowboy boots as flower planters. All you’ll need is soil, flowers and a core drill to drill the bottom of the boots, this will allow the water to drain out the of bottoms of your old boots.

Perfect for country homes or cottage style..

Planting in a chair:
Find an old chair that you’d like to use for your chair planter. Next, remove the seat so there is room for the planter to fit. If you’d like to paint the chair with spray paint then pick a color of your choice or leave it natural. Allow the paint to dry over night. Then find chicken wire at a hardware store, to hold the soil. Roll out the wire and push it down so it creates a bowl shape. Staple the wire to the seat and then snip off the excess wire. In the garden section they have coco liner and that will prevent the soil from falling out. Then use potting soil and plant which ever flowers that you would like to use.

Old and used tires:
Find some old used tires and add potting soil inside the tires. To make them look prettier, simply paint the tires with spray paint and use which ever color you’d like. If you want to make sure your using the right paint, just ask someone at the paint store for the proper paint to apply. These work great for a vegetable garden or planting flowers.

Old wheelbarrows work great for planters. If you have one laying around the house or happen to find one at a flea market, their beautiful to re-use and give them a new life. Make sure to cut out a couple of holes at the bottom before adding the soil. After adding the soil inside, plant flower or herbs inside. Looks adorable in a entry way of a home, front yard and even in the back yard as well.
