Here are some awesome decorating ideas for recycled planters:
Mason jar wall decor
This decorative piece will definitely change the way you look at mason jars. The mason jar wall décor is a great project that will enhance the looks of your wall. You just need to have a couple of wood, mason jars, foliage, nails, hooks and hose clamps. It’s so easy and quick to assemble.
To begin with, do not use books that are still useful. The book should be damaged, obsolete information and of no use at all. The book will serve as a unique and beautiful vase for your planters. This is a gorgeous table centerpiece for both indoor and outdoor purposes. You just have to make a hole at the center of the pages. Fill-in your soil and the plant. Also, make sure to have tiny holes at the bottom so water can drip off.

A chair planter is an excellent recycled project. It is giving a new purpose to your hopeless chair. The concept is to decorate your chair with real plants to make it look attractive and pleasing. You may have it repainted or have it as it is. The base of the chair will serve as the pot. Make sure you choose climbing plants like bougainvillea, lygodium, morning glory and among others.
You can do some modifications like adding miscellaneous items that will enhance the looks of the recycled planters. For instance, you can add ribbons, foils and other items to complement your theme.
