Final Thoughts On DIY Outdoor Planter Ideas

When money is tight or you just don’t want to add more to the landfill, repurposing items you already have is a wonderful idea. 

Even if you use trash day finds or scour garage sales for cheap planters that you can jazz up, they will still be cheaper than the expensive cedar planters at a regular garden centre. 

Add in some brightly colours plants, a cute  doormat and your front porch will look amazing all year round!
