DIY: Upcycled secondhand planter
For me, there’s nothing better than taking a somewhat gaudy thrifted find and turning it into a sophisticated addition to your home decor. And crafting it on a budget. That’s a win, win, win. Here’s a simple way to restyle a secondhand treasure from drab to super fab.
- spray paint
Source your planter from your local thrift store. I loved this owl – who doesn’t love owls?! But the colour was a bit “bright” for me.
Now add soil and your plant. I rehomed a succulent I had from a preious upcycling project. I loved this succulent for my planter since it had long pieces that hung down.
Finally use jute to add a hanger for your planter. My thrifted planter had some tacky gold string. I replaced it with jute and it looked swanky!
And that’s it! Your new to you planter is ready to be hung.
