Pot people

Terra-cotta pots are inexpensive, easy to find and most of us have one or two lying around the garden shed… so let’s use them! Whether you prefer a natural, more contemporary look for your garden, or love color, cute and fun, we have the garden pot projects for you to add some personality to your yard and garden space.  Check out these inspirational photos and tutorials for garden pot projects…

Garden Muse has a great tutorial on making a bell tower wind chime from mini pots. We might prefer to leave the pots natural, but the idea is so original!

This tiered planter from HGTV would look great on a front entry landing, and we love that it is filled with foliage plants… but you could use flowering plants as well within any color scheme. Learn how here.

This rain chain made from pots from Natalie Witt is very cool… again, we prefer the natural, but I am liking the blue as well! Tutorial here.

This clay pot wreath is easy and inexpensive, and just says, “A gardener lives here.” This would make a great gift for a gardener as well! Learn how to make this wreath.

    I love this idea! The whimsy is so wonderful! The child on the trike, the ladies having tea and the children on the swing all make me laugh out loud. Outstanding ideas!
