If you are getting ready to plant some gorgeous flowers outside of your home but don't want to use traditional flower pots, don't worry. There are so many different items that you can use as flower pots that can work just as well and add the fun, unique touch that you are looking for. This article will discuss 3 excellent, yet unique, items that you can easily turn into flower pots.
If you are in the market for a flower pot that is a bit larger, then a tire is a great option for you. The circle inside of the tire is great for laying down, filling with dirt, and planting flowers inside. Also, if you would rather have the tires as hanging flower pots, you can do this as well. Simply hang the tire from your porch or fence, and plant the flowers in the rim of the tire. The rim is great for holding the dirt, and it provides a perfect environment for your flowers to grow and cascade down the side of the tire. To make the tires even more fun, you can paint them different colors to give them a unique look.
If you are more interested in having several small flower pots surround your home, you can instead use boots. Whether you use a cowboy boot, a work boot, or a rain boot, it doesn't matter. However, do realize that because a rain boot is made out of rubber, it will likely withstand the elements a bit better and won't be so easily destroyed by the watering process. You will simply want to fill the boots up with dirt and plant your flowers right inside. The different boots add so much personality to your landscape and really draw attention to your gorgeous flowers inside.
If you have any old toilets lying around, don't throw them away, but instead use them to make awesome flower pots. The huge porcelain bowl of a toilet seat is perfect for filling with dirt and planting flowers, and the built in draining system means that it is ready to go without hardly any modifications. All you need to do is remove the lid and find the perfect location for the toilet seat within your landscape design. To make the toilet more unique, you can paint it with a variety of different colors and patterns.
