Think again, if you want to throw away your old window shutters. They are ideal as a flower stand, which you can attach directly to the wall. This is done with flowerpots or glasses and you have a vertical mini-garden. The used, metal coffee and teapots also look particularly attractive as plant pots. No matter whether you arrange these hanging or standing. Plant succulents in old suitcases or chests, they need very little water.
As you will see, there are no limits here. Old shoes, kitchen straws, cages, coffee cups, PET bottles, books, wheelbarrows, chairs, armchairs, desks, old ornamental fountains and shells. In this way you achieve both – you manufacture unique plant pots and act in an environmentally friendly and sustainable manner. Your reward is the originality and the good conscience. Have fun!
